The company was co-founded in 2009 by Lou Manousos, Chris Kiernan and David Pon. It received $10 million of Series A funding from Summit Partners in February 2013 and $25 million series B funding from Battery Ventures in May 2014.[2][3] RiskIQ is a member of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), and ISACA.[citation needed]
