The 10 Hottest Cloud Security Startups Of 2021

Michael Novinson

The 10 hottest cloud security startups include companies finding cloud vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, monitoring managed and unmanaged datastores, and identifying overprivileged users and incorrectly assigned permissions.

Dasera

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 28 people less than three years after its establishment, 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, thereby securing data between the areas of access control and data loss prevention (DLP).

Dasera’s platform automatically finds where sensitive cloud data is stored, analyzes permissions, detects data store misconfigurations, monitors data in use, and tracks data lineage. The company in July brought on Erin Swanson as VP Marketing, April Mitchell as head of engineering, and Deepti Hemwani as head of product to help Dasera dramatically accelerate its product development and market presence.
