Workato, the leader and the fastest growing Enterprise Automation platform, announced new innovations to further its product roadmap in the areas of collaborative workspaces, enhanced security and governance, embedding, and the automation community. The updates come on the heels of the completion of Workato’s $70 million Series C funding round.

SaaS has caused an explosion in the adoption of best-of-breed tools across business functions, such as sales, marketing, and human resources.  An unwanted side effect has been the rapid growth in data silos and fragmented workflows that has led to poor customer and employee experiences. Workato’s Enterprise Automation platform addresses these challenges with a platform for data integration and workflow automation that can be used by both IT and business teams.

“For enterprises to achieve the benefits of automation across their entire organization, they need a single automation platform that can be pervasively used by both their IT and business teams. The latest Workato product release helps enterprises further accelerate and achieve automation at scale,” said Gautham Viswanathan, Founder and Head of Products at Workato. “With more than 70,000 users and 400,000 community recipes, our customers and partners are helping to establish Workato recipes as the lingua franca for work automation.”

The success of automation programs relies heavily on engagement between IT and business functions. Collaborative Workspaces enables marketing, finance, sales, HR, IT, and other teams to build automations in their own workspace. For example, the marketing Workspace can be set up to be used by members of the marketing team, with tools and connectivity to build out automations for marketing initiatives. All Workspaces can be monitored and managed centrally for security and governance.

Securing customer data is a core value of Workato. Workato includes tools to monitor system security, and manage privileges, audit logs and security policies. The enhanced security and governance feature will help customers meet the most rigorous governance and compliance requirements.
