“A start-up led by former president and CEO of Q1 Labs, Brendan Hannigan, has continued to raise capital with a new Series B round worth $20m. New-York based Sonrai Security said the round was led by Menlo Ventures with full participation from founding investor Polaris Partners and Series A lead investor Ten Eleven Ventures.

This brings the public cloud security company’s total funding to $38m. It plans to use the new funding to accelerate its product research and development as well as global sales and marketing activities for Sonrai Dig, the company’s identity and data governance platform.
