New York – April 27, 2021 – Cooley advised BigID, a leader in data discovery and intelligence, on its $30 million investment from Advent International, which boosts its Series D funding round to $100 million and brings its valuation to $1.25 billion. Partner Adam Dinow led the team advising BigID.
The investment from global private equity investor Advent International, through Advent Tech, extends BigID's $70 million Series D financing raised in December 2020.

"We believe our unified data intelligence platform is uniquely positioned to ensure businesses tackle their data management pain points by providing increased knowledge and visibility of their data, enabling them to meet regulatory requirements, ensure their data is secure and lay the groundwork to reap the rewards of business intelligence."
