Fremont, CA: DisruptOps, a major player in Cloud Security Operations has raised $9 million in Series A round of financing from Drive Capital and existing investor Rally Ventures to scale go-to-market capabilities and accelerate product development to meet the increasing market demands.

These cloud environments consist of multiple teams deploying innumerable applications across multiple cloud accounts. This complex structure has become an unmanaged risk and has led Gartner to predict that more than 99 percent of all cloud structures are subjected to security failures, and majority of which will be the customers’ fault.
