Drata raised $200M in Series C funding at a $2B post-money valuation co-led by Iconiq Growth and GGV Capital.
Drata, a security compliance and automation platform that helps companies adhere to frameworks such as SOC 2 and GDPR, has raised $200M in a Series C round of funding co-led by Iconiq Growth and GGV Capital, valuing the company at $2B.
Drata’s Series C round included backing from institutional investors, including Salesforce Ventures, Alkeon Capital, Cowboy Ventures, S Ventures (SentinelOne) and Silicon Valley CISO Investments (SVCI). Angel investors included former LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner and Snowflake CEO Frank Slootman. As an interesting side note here, Drata also revealed that Microsoft chairman and CEO Satya Nadella invested in its $100M Series B round last year, something that it had not previously disclosed.
So while layoffs and lower valuations have been a key talking point in the venture capital sphere this past year, it seems that security compliance and automation is somewhat bucking that trend.
“We’ve always viewed fundraising as a tactic, not a goal or outcome — funding is a part of our strategic growth and indeed also validation of our execution to date,” Markowitz continued. “Funding allows us to accelerate the next stage of growth. For us, that means further expanding our product capabilities and truly bringing continuous compliance to the masses globally.”
