Cyphort Raises $30 Million to Expand Threat Detection Business

Cyphort, a provider of threat detection solutions, today announced that it has secured $30 million in Series C funding, bringing the total raised by the company to more than $53 million.

Headquartered in Santa Clara, Calif., Cyphort offers a platform designed to help security teams determine the existence and severity of cyber attacks with threat priority-based mitigation techniques.

According to the company, the new funds will be used to support its growth and expansion into new markets.

The company explains that its software-based, distributed architecture offers a cost effective, high performance approach to detecting and protecting an organization’s virtual, physical and cloud infrastructure against attacks.

The platform provides malware detection for Windows, OSX and Linux environments.

“This Series C round is another great milestone for Cyphort as we continue our tremendous growth and traction in the security space,” Manoj Leelanivas, CEO of Cyphort, said in a statement.

Sapphire Ventures led the round and was joined by all existing investors: Trinity Ventures, Foundation Capital and Matrix Partners.
