Cado Security was founded in 2020, and in April closed a $10 million Series A funding round led by Blossom Capital to accelerate the company’s growth through the expansion of key functions including engineering, customer support, and go-to-market operations. The London-based company employs 27 people just 19 months after its establishment, according to LinkedIn.
The company’s platform automates data collection from multiple sources, including cloud and containers, while also supporting traditional, on-premises systems to provide 100 percent of the data with no extra effort. Cado’s analytics engine correlates all systems, users, processes, and files so analysts can immediately visualize the scope of an organization’s IT environment.
Cado Security in August added memory acquisition, processing and analysis capabilities to its Cado Response platform to give security teams enhanced visibility and context to identify the root cause of incidents and respond to data breaches faster. The company partnered with SentinelOne in November to help security teams detect, investigate, and respond to incidents with unmatched speed.
