Oort, a Boston, MA-based identity-centric enterprise security platform, announced that it completed $15 million in a funding round of Seed and Series A investments.
The round was co-led by .406 Ventures, Energy Impact Partners (EIP), and Cisco Investments and joined by existing investors, including 645 Ventures, Bain Capital Ventures, and First Star Ventures.
Oort will use the funds to grow and further accelerate its go-to-market (GTM) strategy and leadership in identity threat detection and response.
“Every high-profile security breach of 2022 comes down to one thing, and that’s identity. F m the Okta breach in January perpetrated by the Lapsus$ group to the recent string of attacks on Twilio and Uber, traditional security controls have failed,” said Matt Caulfield, founder, and CEO, of Oort. “The modern workforce is changing, and we need to change with it. Oort is on a mission to help our customers adopt an identity-first approach to enterprise security, starting with Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR).”
To secure its platform, Oort has gone through rigorous testing to meet industry standards and receive critical certifications, including SOC 2 Type 2. Oort is built on Snowflake’s security data lake architecture, which helps them store and query massive volumes of data, and AWS Lambda, which allows Oort to automatically scale their data streaming architecture to accommodate enterprise organizations of any size.
