Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Traditional manual compliance workflows are tedious, error-prone and extremely hard to scale, which presents special difficulties for rapidly growing companies in maintaining strong data security. Drata enables companies to manage compliance easily, by automatic monitoring and evidence collection, building a single picture of risk across the company.

The company has several competitors offering compliance automation solutions, including Vanta and Secureframe , but Drata is unique in automating the tasks themselves rather than generating notifications for teams to action. This approach has garnered Drata a client base of thousands of companies including bambooHR, Notion and Abnormal.

Drata has grown swiftly since its 2020 founding. Iconiq Growth and GGV Capital have led Drata's impressive funding rounds. It intends to use its influx of cash to invest heavily in research and development, and to roll out new features for auditors and startups.
