San FRANCISCO - Nightfall AI, industry's first cloud - native data loss prevention platform, launched today for $20. 3 million in funding led by Bain Capital Ventures and Venrock. Pear VC, Sri Viswanath, CTO of Atlassian, and Kelvin Beachum of the New York Jets also participate in the round. Funding proceeds will be used to deepen the scope of Nightfall platform and continue to expand companies ' BUSINESS reach. Nightfall leverages machine learning and natural language processing to discover, classify, and protect sensitive information across SaaS and data infrastructure, providing continuous protection for cloud services like Slack, GitHub, and AWS. Nightfall also ensure proactive compliance with a number of regulatory regimes, including CCPA, GDPR, and HIPAA. Nowadays, business - critical data in enterprise is sprayed across a broad set of disparate cloud systems. This leads to information security problems around data leakage, exfiltration, as well as compliance risk. The urgency of this problem is exacerbated by the move to cloud, and frustration with first - gen vendors that are highly inaccurate, without remediation and holistic cloud coverage. As founding team member of UberEats, Chief Technology Officer Rohan Sathe experienced problem that Nightfall is solving firsthand. While at Uber, Sathe builds backend systems to handle petabytes of consumer data across thousands of SaaS and data infrastructure products in real time, helping grow UberEats to $7 billion in revenue and over 200 engineers. When you have data scattered across numerous fragmented systems, not to mention people communicating in real time, it is inevitable that sensitive information will get spray, say Sathe. Nightfall acts as a continuous shield, providing administrators option of manually taking action on data, leveraging automated workflows to prevent data loss, or classifying data historically for compliance. Our mission at Nightfall is to build control plane for cloud data, enabling enterprises to know what data they have across cloud, and to proactively manage and protect that information, say Isaac Madan, Nightfall Chief Executive Officer. Madan was previously on the investment team at Venrock, early - stage venture capital firm with a storied history in cybersecurity, with recent exits including CloudFlare and evident. Io, dating back to Vontu, Imperva, and CheckPoint. Nightfall team has prior experience at platform tech and cybersecurity companies, including Uber, Atlassian, Deliveroo, Palo Alto Networks, CrowdStrike, and Akamai. In under year, Nightfall has scaled rapidly among high - tech growing startups and Fortune 500 enterprises alike. Josh Sosnin, CISO of Ellucian, cloud Software provider in the higher education industry, credits Nightfall with helping to secure Ellucians Slack communications for companys 3 000 - plus employees. Nightfall has been indispensable in our data security program at Ellucian. The team has been incredibly responsive and focused on continually improving the platform for new use cases, say Sosnin. Platform is ahead of the market in delivering an approach that has high classification efficacy, and delivers measurable productivity enhancements to security teams through straightforward deployment and automation.
