Cloud Application Security Firm Anjuna Raises $30 Million
Anjuna, a provider of cloud application security, today announced that it has raised $30 million in Series B funding, which brings the total raised by the company to date to $42 million.
The funding round was led by Insight Partners and is expected to help the company bring its Confidential Cloud Software Platform to market and support technology development and innovation.
Founded in 2018, the Silicon Valley-based startup aims to secure data and application workloads from both external and insider attackers, as well as from malware.
For that, the company leverages confidential computing to ensure data privacy and application security even in untrusted geographies.
Anjuna helps organizations fully protect data and applications even from attackers who already gained root access on a host. Its platform can be used across multi-cloud and hybrid environments, as well as to secure on-premises data centers.
“Anjuna makes it practical to use powerful hardware-level security features in clouds and servers from all major providers. This can transparently accommodate software applications unchanged while extending hardware-grade protection uniformly across all of IT infrastructure,” Ayal Yogev, CEO and co-founder of Anjuna, commented.
