Providing user access to increasingly large volumes of data—“democratizing access” is the buzz term—while enforcing data security and data governance policies is becoming a major challenge. Okera has developed a platform that IT managers use to automatically discover and tag sensitive data, develop and enforce data governance policies, and audit data security and governance operations.
In April Okera raised $15 million in Series B funding, bringing its total financing to $29.6 million, money the company is investing in expanding engineering, sales and marketing. The company also named Nick Halsey, previously president and CEO of ZoomData, as the company’s new CEO.
