Laminar emerges from stealth to pick up $32m Series A

Cloud data protection provider Laminar has secured $32m from a Series A funding round headed by Insight Partners.

The round also saw participation from SentinelOne, TLV Partners and Meron Capital. To date, the company has raised $37m since its inception.

Founded in 2020, Laminar delivers data leakage protection for everything companies build and run in the cloud. The company claims its Cloud Data Security Platform is the only solution on the market that allows its user to discover and classify continuously for complete visibility, secure and control to improve risk posture and detect leaks and remediate without interrupting data flow.

According to Laminar, it will use the new funding to expand its engineering department, build-out its go-to-market team and establish a world-class data security research team.

Laminar CEO Amit Shaked said, “As organizations rapidly transition to the cloud and build applications cloud-first, businesses are moving at record pace. These transformations often make life easier. However, for CISOs and data security professionals, their job is more difficult than ever before, and data protection teams are left in the dark.”

Laminar CTO Oran Avraham added, “We’ve already built a truly world-class team of both offensive and defensive security engineers, and I’m proud to be working with and recruiting some of the best in the world. Part of the joy of working at Laminar is being side-by-side with these amazing individuals. I’m excited to continue to build-out an elite team of engineers and researchers that will help enable our customers to detect and prevent some of the most sophisticated attacks.”
