BetterCloud, an independent software vendor (ISV) based in New York, NY and with engineering offices in Atlanta, GA, puts IT in control of the modern workplace through user lifecycle management, data discovery, and IT and security automation purpose-built for cloud office platforms such as Google Apps and Office 365. A venture-backed startup, BetterCloud has raised $47 million in total funding, with the most recent round led by Accel Partners and closed in March of 2015. BetterCloud was founded in November 2011 in New York City, by founder and CEO David Politis and CTO David Hardwick. Soon after, the company launched DomainWatch, which was a security tool for Google Docs, Google Sites and Google Calendar. In May 2012, shortly after its launch, BetterCloud raised $2.2 million in seed funding from undisclosed angel investors. In January 2013, with its FlashPanel product reportedly serving 15,000 domains and 5.5 million end-users, the company raised a Series A round of $5 million in venture capital from Flybridge Capital Partners, Greycroft Partners and TriBeCa Venture Partners, bringing its total funding at the time to $7.2 million.
