Cloud data protection company, Baffle, has raised $20 million in Series B funding led by Celesta Capital. Baffle is a data-centric security solution that secures data anywhere it is produced, stored, and processed, from any source to any destination, on-premises or in the cloud.
Baffle’s no-code, “easy-to-deploy” security mesh would provide a data-centric approach at cloud scale without affecting performance or requiring application modifications. The investment led by Celesta Capital also consisted of contributions from National Grid Partners, Lytical Ventures, and Nepenthe Capital, as well as follow-on investments from True Ventures, Greenspring Associates, Clearvision Ventures, Engineering Capital, and Triphammer Ventures.
“Securing IT infrastructure – networks, devices, databases, lakes and warehouses – is never complete. Constant change makes it impossible to adopt a zero trust security posture without protecting the data itself,” said Ameesh Divatia, co-founder and CEO of Baffle. “With this investment, we can meet market demand for data-centric cloud data protection that enables responsible digital information sharing and breaks the cycle of continuous data and privacy breaches.”
AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud
In financial institutions, healthcare, retail, industrial IoT, and government, Baffle until now would secure over 100 billion documents. This contains five of the top 25 worldwide corporations as well as the top five global financial services companies. All major cloud platforms, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and IBM Cloud, as well as top SaaS providers, such as Snowflake and Amazon Redshift, and other analytics environments, are supported by Baffle.
“With enterprise data moving rapidly to cloud infrastructure, it is critical that the highest levels of security solutions are conducted in an easy-to-implement and easy-to-deploy fashion,” said Sriram Viswanathan, founding general partner of Celesta Capital, who will join Baffle’s board of directors. “Baffle’s data-centric security solution delivers on this promise. As a result, Baffle’s customer base has grown dramatically in the last year. We are thrilled to partner with the company as it readies for its next phase of growth.”
