CEO: Ani Chaudhuri
Dasera was founded in 2019, and in May closed a $6 million seed funding round led by Sierra Ventures to expand its engineering and go-to-market teams as well as launch a SaaS offering. The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company employs 22 people, according to LinkedIn.
The company enables safe use of sensitive data by automatically securing the full lifecycle of cloud data stores. Initially developed at UC Berkeley, the Dasera platform enables compliance and security teams to find, flag and fix vulnerabilities for data misuse across the data lifecycle.
Traditional security solutions have been focused solely on ingress (firewalls and access control) and egress (data loss prevention). But in today’s cloud-native environments, Dasera said so many security and compliance risks originate from the day-to-day creation of new data stores, data moving between data stores, and the usage of data among those with access.
