Evident.io, a Dublin, CA-based provider of cloud infrastructure security and compliance automation solution, completed $15.7M in Series B funding.
The round was led by Venrock. In conjunction with the funding, Doug Dooley of Venrock will join the Evident.io Board of Directors, which already includes Bain Capital’s managing director and former Symantec CEO Enrique Salem, and True Ventures partner Puneet Agarwal.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its offering beyond Amazon Web Services (AWS) to include other cloud provider platforms, as well as develop new capabilities.
Led by Tim Prendergast, cofounder and CEO, and Justin Lundy, cofounder and CTO, Evident.io provides a security and compliance automation platform for public cloud. The Evident Security Platform (ESP) continuously monitors an organization’s entire AWS footprint, identifying and assessing security risks, providing security staff with expert remediation guidance, and enabling security auditing and compliance reporting. Built on Amazon Web Services APIs, ESP is agent-less and can be deployed any environment in minutes.
In addition to the funding, veteran security executive Jeff Williams, Operating Partner at Bain Capital Ventures, joined the company’s executive team as interim Senior Vice President of Sales to lead sales strategy and execution globally.
