Security Analytics Startup Uptycs Raises $10M in Series A

This round of funding for Uptycs, which runs an osquery-powered analytics platform, was led by ForgePoint Capital and Comcast Ventures.

Uptycs today announced $10 million in a Series A investment led by Comcast Ventures and ForgePoint Capital. The Boston-based startup provides a security analytics platform which runs on osquery, a universal open-source endpoint agent.

The Uptycs platform was built to support visibility and management of security data in corporate environments running a mix of Windows, Linux, macOS, containers, and cloud workloads. It aims to cut down on the "heavy lifting" required to turn the data generated by osquery into actionable information, according to the company.

"A challenge in the modern enterprise is juggling the numerous point security solutions - each with their own data collection strategy - especially across a diverse ecosystem of IT assets," says Andy Ellis, chief security officer at Akamai. As organizations grow and rely on different systems, they can view data from each in the Uptycs dashboard to detect bugs and intrusions.

Uptycs intends to use the funding to continue building its product and acquire new talent. It plans to roll out additional dashboards for vulnerability management and compliance "in the coming weeks," the company reports.
