The 10 hottest cloud security startups include companies providing centralized insights, anomaly detection and compliance across multi-cloud environments, and protecting AWS, Azure and GCP workloads.

Automox

CEO: Jay Prassl

Automox was founded in 2015, and in April closed a $110 million Series C funding round led by Insight Partners to expand the enterprise functionality of the company’s platform and build out its sales and go-to-market operations. The Boulder, Colo.-based company employs 203 people, up 95 percent from 104 employees a year ago, according to LinkedIn.

The company delivers a cloud-native IT operations platform that offers the visibility, automation, and control IT teams need to effortlessly advance operations at scale, streamline IT workflows, and minimize risk and exposure. With automation and real-time visibility, IT operations teams can easily keep pace with their infrastructure and provide more strategic value and security outcomes for their business.

Automox in March hired Jeff St. Clair from Palo Alto Networks as chief revenue officer to build on five consecutive quarters of rapid growth and expand the company’s base of more than 1,900 customers across 30 countries. A month later, the company named CrowdStrike co-founder and former CTO Dmitri Alperovitch as chair of the board to help bring modern IT operations to the enterprise.
