Anomali Raises $30 Million to Expand Threat Intel Business

Anomali, a security technology firm that offers a SaaS-based cyber security intelligence platform, today announced it has raised $30 million in series C funding. The round, led by Institutional Venture Partners (IVP), brings the total amount raised by the company to more than $56 million since launching in 2013.

Headquartered in Redwood City, Calif., the company is led by Hugh Njemanze, former co-founder, CTO and executive vice president of R&D at ArcSight, who took the role as CEO in July 2014.

The company, which rebranded itself in February 2016, offers two threat intelligence platforms:

Anomali Enterprise – Designed to provide threat intelligence relevant to each environment, the platform enables “an intelligence-driven SOC” and expands view into breach exposure beyond what can be provided by most traditional SIEM solutions alone. 

ThreatStream Platform – Helps defenders make sense of all of the threat data that security teams have to sort through to find the “needle(s) in the haystack” that can threaten their organization. The platform helps companies consume and share threat intelligence.  The product integrates with popular security products, such as ArcSight, Splunk, LogRhythm, CrowdStrike, Sqrrl, RSA Security Analytics, Palo Alto Networks, and many more. 

For those who can’t stand being away from their threat monitoring platform, the company even offers an app for Apple Watches that allows security operations center (SOC) analysts who own an Apple Watch to receive alerts and notifications while on the go.

General Catalyst Partners, GV (formerly Google Ventures) and Paladin Capital Group also participated in the funding round.
