Ermetic adds Andrei Brasoveanu to its Board along with raising $17m Series A financing led by Accel

– USA, CA –  Ermetic, the cloud access risk security company, today announced it has closed a $17.25M Series A round of financing led by Accel, and supported by Glilot Capital Partners, Norwest Venture Partners and Target Global.

Concurrent with the financing, Andrei Brasoveanu, Partner at Accel, has joined the board of directors.

“With the wide scale adoption of cloud services by organizations, protecting these infrastructures is critical. But managing entitlements is too massive and complex a problem to address manually or without the right tools,” said Andrei Brasoveanu, Partner at Accel. “Ermetic has developed a purpose-built solution that addresses this large market opportunity, and is led by a proven management team. I look forward to working with the team to quickly establish Ermetic as a leader in this space.”

Ermetic will use the funds to scale research & development, go-to-market, sales, marketing and customer support initiatives for its Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management platform.

Ermetic helps organizations enforce tighter, least privilege access policies across both user and machine identities to help prevent data breaches in AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

“Until now, customers have been using retrofitted tools to try to manage cloud infrastructure accounts and entitlements. Ermetic has developed a cloud-native alternative that uses analytics to consistently manage permissions and enforce least-privilege access,” said CEO, Shai Morag. “We are pleased to welcome Accel as an investor and Andrei Brasoveanu to our Board. This capital infusion will help us capture a large share of the emerging market known as Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management.”

The Ermetic analytics-based solution prevents cloud data breaches by automating the detection and remediation of identity and access risks in Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service offerings from Amazon, Google and Microsoft. It automatically discovers all human and machine identities in the cloud, and analyzes their entitlements, roles and policies using a continuous lifecycle approach. By combining analytics with granular, full stack insight, Ermetic makes it possible to enforce least privilege access at scale even in the most complex cloud environments.
