From the very beginning, our journey at Drata has been nothing short of extraordinary. In just three years, we've transformed our vision into reality, establishing a compliance automation platform that sets new standards in efficiency and effectiveness. With over 20 compliance frameworks, state-of-the-art automation, and a comprehensive suite of products powered by hundreds of integrations, we've supported over 4,500 customers worldwide in mastering risk and compliance. Our efforts have modernized a critical business domain, propelling us far ahead of the competition.

Our achievements to date—streamlining evidence collection, innovating control monitoring, and fostering auditor relationships through our Audit Hub, not to mention empowering companies to showcase their security stance via our Trust Center—are just the beginning. There's more terrain to cover in our mission to simplify compliance further.

Drata Acquires Harmonize.io

I'm thrilled to share that we've reached a pivotal milestone: Drata has acquired Harmonize.io, backed by Ripple Ventures and Array Ventures, and a trailblazer in user access governance and automation. This move not only enriches our talented team with Harmonize's exceptional product and engineering teams but also accelerates our mission, reinforcing our position at the forefront of compliance automation.

In an era where remote and hybrid work models have become the norm, maintaining a secure posture across distributed teams is paramount. Harmonize.io steps up to this challenge with its sophisticated governance solutions, automating crucial processes such as mobile device management and the onboarding/offboarding of employees. Their use of AI and machine learning offers businesses unparalleled insights into access management, enhancing security and operational efficiency.

The synergy between Drata and Harmonize.io was instantly recognizable. Our shared commitment to automation and innovation promised a seamless integration of our platforms and visions.

Johnny Kinder, the CEO of Harmonize and newest member of our product team, says it best. "Our mission was to revolutionize system access management. By automating the onboarding and offboarding process and leveraging AI to evaluate real-time risks, we've not only saved companies invaluable time and resources but also set new standards in the field. Joining forces with Drata is a testament to our achievements and a thrilling next step in our shared vision."

The integration of Harmonize.io's capabilities in access provisioning/deprovisioning and mobile device management is just the beginning. As we look ahead, we're excited to further enhance our platform with Harmonize's innovative solutions, deepening our AI capabilities and simplifying the journey to continuous compliance.

This acquisition isn't just a growth milestone for Drata; it's a leap forward for our customers, offering them even more robust tools to navigate the complexities of compliance with ease and confidence. Welcome to the family, Harmonize.io—here's to the incredible journey ahead!
