Sentra, a cloud data security company with roots in New York and Tel Aviv, has raised a $30 million funding round as investors continue to place big bets on the DSPM (data security posture management) category.
The $30 million Series A comes just 18 months after Sentra’s launch with backing from Bessemer Venture Partners and brings the total raised to $53 million.
Sentra said it attracted several new investors in the latest round, including Standard Investments, Munich Re Ventures, Moore Strategic Ventures, Xerox Ventures and INT3.
Sentra is among a cadre of well-funded startups — Symmetry Systems ($15 million raised), Veza ($110 million raised), Dig Security ($45 million funding) Laminar ($30 million), Securiti.ai ($81 million) and Normalyze ($22 million) — selling machine learning technology and tools to help businesses pinpoint security risks to digital assets in multi-cloud environments.
The company, which maintains headquarters in Tel Aviv, Israel, is working on technology to allow security teams to gain full visibility and control of cloud data, as well as protect against sensitive data breaches across the entire public cloud stack.
Sentra said its software can automatically detect if sensitive data is vulnerable due to misconfigurations, over-permissions, unauthorized access, data duplication or other security issues.
