Cyral

CEO: Manav Mital

Cyral was founded in 2018, and in May closed a $26 million Series B funding round led by Redpoint, Costanoa Ventures, A.Capital, and Silicon Valley CISO Investments (SVCI) to help secure the modern data cloud. The Milpitas, Calif.-based company currently employs 46 people, up 53 percent from just 30 employees a year ago, according to LinkedIn.

The company gives security and engineering teams a quick and simple way to evaluate cloud security risks and proactively protect company and customer data without disrupting existing DevOps workflows. Cyral said it automates workflows and enables collaboration between DevOps and Security teams to automate assurance and prevent data leakage.

Cyral developed a unique stateless interception technology that can be implemented as security as code, allowing for ease in implementation and in management across all data services. Once deployed, the company’s technology intercepts all activity across data repositories, applies granular access controls, and alerts and blocks any anomalous behavior with zero impact on performance.
