As Enterprises Race to Embrace Cloud Security and Compliance Automation, Anitian Announces Explosive Growth and Customer Momentum

Growth fuels expansion to new markets, new products, new partners, and expanded leadership team.

PORTLAND, Oregon — March 25, 2021 — Anitian, the leading cloud application security and compliance automation provider, announced today record year-over-year customer growth in a challenging year like 2020. The explosive growth is fueled by the rapid adoption of Anitian’s pre-engineered cloud security platform as well as their expansion of new partners, markets, and products for cloud security and compliance.

Anitian’s Compliance Automation Platform continues to replace traditional, consultant-driven approaches to FedRAMP security and compliance. What takes FedRAMP consultants months or years to complete and costs millions of dollars, the Anitian pre-built platform can achieve in just weeks at a fraction of the cost. Anitian’s automated and standardized platform accelerates cloud application delivery to achieve 80% faster time-to-market and time-to-revenue.

Partners comprise a critical element to Anitian’s success. In 2020, there were several key partner additions and expansions.

  • A-LIGN, a cybersecurity and compliance auditing and assessment firm, became a key strategic partner with Anitian.

“2020 has been a transformational year for Anitian, and the industry as a whole,” said Anitian CEO, Rakesh Narasimhan. “As organizations embrace new ways of working in a distributed cloud-centric enterprise, the speed and scale of Anitian’s automated and standardized cloud platform is resonating with customers adapting to a changing world. Organizations who are leaders in their category are increasingly placing Anitian at the center of their cloud security and compliance strategy due to our proven track record of getting their applications to market more securely and rapidly.”

“Anitian SecureCloud enables a whole new paradigm for DevOps teams and SaaS companies to seamlessly migrate and deploy apps to the cloud, while providing faster time-to-market with the industry’s strongest application security,” said Sean Cunningham, Managing Director of ForgePoint Capital. “SecureCloud is not a single security tool, but an entire DevSecOps platform of pre-configured, cloud-native tools that empower development teams to stay focused on building applications and not setting up complex security tools.”

With several groundbreaking product innovations set to be released this year, Anitian’s growth will accelerate to deliver even more customer value. Working alongside technology, cloud, and service partners, Anitian will continue to drive the message of automation and standardization to make cloud application security and compliance easy.
