DivvyCloud, the leading independent provider of security and compliance automation for cloud and container environments, today announced the opening of our new corporate headquarters in the Court House neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia. The additional office space was acquired in anticipation of the company doubling its employee headcount over the next 12 months.  Joining us for our ribbon cutting event (and making it all the more special), were Virginia State Senator Barbara Favola, Arlington County Board Member Matt de Ferranti, and NBC Washington’s Drew Wilder.

Brian Johnson, DivvyCloud CEO and co-founder, said a few words after the ribbon was cut:

DivvyCloud was born and raised in Arlington, and we are thrilled to continue our growth trajectory in this county. Our people have powered our growth and we have designed our new headquarters to empower them to do their best work. Our new headquarters are in an ideal location, allowing us to tap into one of the most diverse groups of highly skilled, entrepreneurial talent pools in the nation as we expand our workforce. All of you have been such a huge part of this company and we look forward to growing even more, together.

DivvyCloud Headquarters at 2111 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, Virginia, 22201

Located at 2111 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, Virginia, DivvyCloud’s offices now span 13,000 square feet, a significant increase from the 2,000 square foot office it occupied in Rosslyn at the beginning of 2018. In this same time period, the company has grown from 20 to 55 “local” employees (an increase of 175percent), and plans to reach at least 120 employees within the next year. 

DivvyCloud is a local success story, as it was co-founded by Brian Johnson, CEO, and Chris DeRamus, CTO, who both live in Virginia. The company has raised $29 million in venture capital funding since 2013, including a growth round of $19 million led by Providence Strategic Growth in May 2019. DivvyCloud was founded with a vision of empowering enterprises to give developers the freedom to innovate through self-service access to cloud services while at the same time enhance security and compliance.

In a rapidly growing sector, DivvyCloud has emerged as a clear market leader, doubling its customer base over the last year including adding marquee customers Kroger, CoStar and Pizza Hut. Additional customers include 3M, Fannie Mae, Discovery Communications, GE, Twilio and Autodesk. Nearly a quarter of DivvyCloud’s customers are Fortune 100 companies and nearly another quarter are Fortune 500 companies. 

Chris DeRamus commented on DivvyCloud’s growth:

As a company dedicated to innovation, we are especially eager to hire more engineers to help expand our product portfolio and deliver even more value to our customers. Since the majority of our direct competitors have been acquired, DivvyCloud is uniquely positioned as a well-funded company exclusively focused on advancing enterprise solutions in the cloud security posture management category. We will also look to expand our customer success, sales, and marketing teams to support growing market demand.

Watch DivvyCloud’s 60-second video to learn how we help customers like GE, 3M, Autodesk, Discovery, and Fannie Mae stay secure and compliant. DivvyCloud minimizes security and compliance risk by providing virtual guardrails for security, compliance, and governance to customers embracing the dynamic, self-service nature of public cloud, and container infrastructure. Customers like General Electric, Discovery Communications, and Fannie Mae run DivvyCloud’s software to achieve continuous security governance in cloud and container environments (AWS, Azure, GCP, Alibaba, and Kubernetes). First, our software performs real-time, continuous discovery of infrastructure resources allowing customers to identify risks and threats. Second, customers can implement out-of-the-box or custom cloud-native policy guardrails that identify and alert on violations. Third, we automate the enforcement and remediation of these policies.
