Accurics raises $20 mn led by ClearSky and Intel Capital

Accurics announced it raised $20 million in seed – led by ClearSky — and in series A – led by Intel Capital — in the past six months.
The investment will assist Accurics to develop technology that self-heals cloud native infrastructure by codifying security throughout the development lifecycle.

“We envision a world where organizations can innovate with confidence—and our mission is to fill the gap between benefit and threat by enabling cyber resilience as organizations embrace cloud native infrastructure,” said Sachin Aggarwal, Accurics Co-founder & CEO, in a statement.

“As cloud breaches continue to increase in velocity and scale, it’s apparent that cloud security techniques must evolve to become programmatic and comprehensive,” said Sunil Kurkure, managing director at Intel Capital.

“Cloud technologies have matured much faster than security architectures, and that gap represents a fundamental risk,” said Doug Cahill, vice president & group director, Cybersecurity at Enterprise Strategy Group. “The Accurics approach promises to close that gap with the level of automation required to secure vigorous innovation.”
