The product analyzes vulnerability feeds, IAM privileges and other data to help organizations detect and fix exposure paths.

The company has also announced integrations with HashiCorp, GitHub, and CircleCI.

“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 Accurics Co-founder & CEO Sachin Aggarwal. “We’re gratified by the level of support from investors and customers, and we pledge to continue developing solutions that meet this critical need.”
