The cloud data protection company, Baffle, announced that it has secured $20 million in Series B funding from new investor Celesta Capital, as well as National Grid Partners, Lytical Ventures, and Nepenthe Capital. Other investors included True Ventures, Greenspring Associates, Clearvision Ventures, Engineering Capital, and Triphammer Ventures.

Ameesh Divatia, co-founder and CEO of Baffle, said, “Securing IT infrastructure — networks, devices, databases, lakes, and warehouses — is never complete. Constant change makes it impossible to adopt a zero-trust security posture without protecting the data itself. With this investment, we can meet market demand for data-centric cloud data protection that enables responsible digital information sharing and breaks the cycle of continuous data and privacy breaches.”

The modern world of business relies completely on data analytics, so businesses must protect and responsibly use their data. With Baffle’s easy-to-deploy, no-code security mesh, you can take a data-centric approach in a cloud without affecting your applications. The Baffle data-centric security solution protects data every step of the way, at every stage of its creation, storage, and processing, whether it’s on-premises, in the cloud, or anywhere in between.

Sriram Viswanathan, founding general partner of Celesta Capital, will join Baffle’s board of directors, “With enterprise data moving rapidly to cloud infrastructure, it is critical that the highest levels of security solutions are conducted in an easy-to-implement and easy-to-deploy fashion. Baffle’s data-centric security solution delivers on this promise. As a result, Baffle’s customer base has grown dramatically in the last year. We are thrilled to partner with the company as it readies for its next phase of growth.”
