MissionOG is pleased to announce the acquisition of portfolio company DivvyCloud by Rapid7 (ticker: RPD) for $145 million. The acquisition represents a great outcome for the DivvyCloud team, its investors, and the acquirer. 

DivvyCloud broadens Rapid7’s product offerings to include infrastructure security and compliance. As Rapid7 CEO Corey Thomas stated, “We have been very impressed with the DivvyCloud team and its technology for some time. As the rate of cloud adoption continues to rise, the DivvyCloud platform will be an important part of our offering, giving customers a much deeper, comprehensive view into their cloud security posture.”

Founded by Brian Johnson and Chris DeRamus and headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, DivvyCloud provides automated policy enforcement for multi-cloud and container environments to help enterprises manage infrastructure cost, compliance, and security.  

MissionOG first invested in DivvyCloud in October 2017 and participated in a subsequent growth round in April 2019. DivvyCloud’s business was well matched to a core investment theme that we have pursued – enterprises will continue to migrate workloads in mass to the cloud, creating great demand for tools to effectively innovate and manage their cloud infrastructure.  

The exit from DivvyCloud marks the firm’s second successful investment outcome within the cloud infrastructure space with the prior being the acquisition of Cloudamize by Blackstone. We have been thrilled to watch DivvyCloud build a leadership position in a fast-growing market and remain excited about their future, now with Rapid7.
