Wabbi, Abnormal Security and Cyberhaven were among the cybersecurity startups at RSA Conference 2022 that caught CRN’s attention.


Talk about being hot. On the opening day of RSAC 2022, AppOmni announced it raised $70 million in Series C funding, led by private equity juggernaut Thoma Bravo. The latest round brought to $123 million the total amount raised by AppOmni since its founding in 2018.

The San Francisco-based AppOmni is a provider of cloud security for SaaS applications – and the company’s founder and CEO, Brendan O’Connor, says that AppOmni is today experiencing “triple-digit growth.” He did not provide a specific revenue figure.

In an interview with CRN, O’Connor said his firm’s ultimate goal is to go public one day. Until then, he anticipates continued “huge growth” due to high demand for SaaS-related cybersecurity in general.

More than 80 percent of AppOmni’s current sales are via the channel – and O’Connor said he wants to see that number grow.

“We’re very channel-centric,” he said. “The channel is our lifeblood.”
