Network automation company Gluware has revealed it raised $43 million in funding. It will use the new funds to scale its sales and marketing efforts and continue to build its network automation platform out. 

This round was led by Bain Capital, with participation from Acadia Woods Partners and other existing investors. 

“Modern IT environments are in a continuous state of flux. Corporate networks are constantly in need of tuning as business demands shift and new infrastructure, applications, and operations are required to change in near real-time,” said Jeff Gray, CEO and co-founder at Gluware. “Enterprise network teams are challenged by evolving cybercrime, software vulnerabilities, and human error, making it difficult to keep up with the cloud’s speed of innovation without the support of intelligent network automation. Gluware has made great strides in addressing these issues among the most complex and sophisticated enterprises today. Bain Capital’s support and expertise will be invaluable as we accelerate our growth and bring our networking innovations to all corners of the market.”

Imperva Snapshot now available for Amazon RDS

Imperva Snapshot is a cloud data security posture assessment tool. It allows teams to assess the status of their databases and identify areas of non-compliance. It also flags sensitive data that might need additional attention. 

“Managed databases are one of the most popular cloud services, and quite often, those databases hold the most sensitive data of an organization,” says Elad Erez, chief innovation officer at Imperva. “When not maintained properly, misconfigurations, bad practices, and vulnerable unpatched databases may put the data at risk. There are many posture assessments tools available, but most offer no context about the data, rely solely on the cloud vendor API, or are difficult to configure.”
