DoControl Celebrates Its First Anniversary

With DoControl hitting our one-year anniversary this month, I wanted to take some time to reflect on the first year of our journey. As I look back on our first year which played out during a once-in-a-generation pandemic, I’m humbled and amazed at the progress we’ve made. There were many ups and downs over this first year, but all the challenges we’ve faced have only made us a stronger company.

Over these first twelve months we’ve accomplished some major milestones. We raised our Seed round from world-class investors from CrowdStrike, StageOne, and Cardumen who quickly helped us mature as a company. We then began interfacing with security teams to figure out a product-market fit to solve the problems that they are facing, and using their feedback to drive the product roadmap. Lastly, we closed our Series A funding with the same group of investors while adding RTP Global, investors in Sisense, Zerto, and Datadog who successfully IPO'd.

From day 1, we have been very aggressive in exceeding our customers’ expectations and meeting all of their product, security, and support requirements. As I look back on these past twelve months, DoControl has assembled a world-class team that is laser-focused on solving the problem we’ve identified: securing the data within SaaS applications as SaaS adoption has exploded in growth. This is the culture that we have built here at DoControl. We refuse to give up and always work toward creative solutions to solve our customer pain points.

If this sounds like the type of journey you’re looking for in your career, please come join us. Here’s to an even more exciting next twelve months!
