Anvilogic Scores $25 Million Series B to Tackle SOC Modernization

Anvilogic, a Silicon Valley startup working on technology to modernize the Security Operations Center (SOC), has deposited $25 million in a new investment round led by Outpost Ventures.

The Palo Alto, Calif. Anvilogic said the $25 million Series B investment also included participation from Xerox Ventures, G Squared, Foundation Capital, Point72 Ventures and Cervin Ventures. 

This round brings Anvilogic’s total funding to $40 million.

Anvilogic is positioning itself as a cloud-based, modern, and automated Security Operations Center (SOC) platform working across on-prem, hybrid and multi-cloud workloads as well as security data lakes.

The platform helps security teams to automate the majority of traditional security workflows – detect, hunt, triage and response –  in a single platform. 

The Anvilogic technology can be used to query raw logs wherever they are stored and infest and enrich alerts with a unified search function.  It can also be used to streamline threat detection, look for patterns in targeted threat hunting, add context to alert triage and help with continuous maturity scoring.

"Security practitioners no longer have to worry about disparate tools or coding in tool-specific languages.  Instead, they can work in a single detect-and-respond continuum fully enriched with context and integrated with downstream ticketing and case management systems," Anvilogic said in a statement announcing the new financing.
