Software-as-a-service (SaaS) security specialist AppOmni has added Eden Data, an IT services company focused on supporting startups and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), to its partner program.

As startups and SMBs don’t always have the manpower or budget to staff their own standalone cybersecurity departments, Eden Data deploys a team of former auditors who act as virtual chief information security officers (CISOs) for their clients.

Donald Shake, director of National Partners at AppOmni, said his company proud to make enterprise-level SaaS security available to smaller organizations:

“Many businesses, including startups and SMBs, have made a rapid move to SaaS across their organizations. But too many companies neglect to prioritize SaaS security to protect their sensitive data in the cloud. We’re pleased to add Eden Data to our list of impactful global technology partners and look forward to working together to help more organizations improve their SaaS security.”

Eden Data’s Scalable Solutions

Eden Data’s security, compliance and data privacy programs are tailored for each organization and tech stack, the company said. Accordingly, its scalable solutions allow clients to focus on growing their businesses with cybersecurity baked in rather than an added cost center.

Eden Data founder and CEO Taylor Hersom looked forward to the partnership’s future impact:

“I'm excited to be formally announcing our strategic partnership with AppOmni, a software provider we believe to be at the forefront of innovation in SSPM. I believe this alliance will further our efforts to offer startups and small businesses a comprehensive, streamlined, and exciting approach to their security programs.”

More AppOmni Moves

AppOmni received funding from Cisco Investments to propel product development and accelerate its market strategy, MSSP Alert reported in August 2022. AppOmni is expanding its security capabilities to cover additional SaaS security applications, including Snowflake, HubSpot, Cisco’s Duo Security and Veeva.

In addition, private equity firm Thoma Bravo invested in AppOmni. The Series C funding round, which included Salesforce’s venture capital arm, raised $70 million, MSSP Alert reported. AppOmni in May 2022 expanded its Infinity Partner Program to MSSPs, MSPs and other technology providers in Australia and New Zealand.
