Fleet, an endpoint visibility technology vendor with open-source roots, has attracted $20 million in new funding at a valuation in the range of $100 million.

The San Francisco, Calif. Startup, the brainchild of former Facebook engineer Zach Wasserman, said the $20 million Series A was led by venture capital outfit CRV with participation from a range of prominent cybersecurity executives.

The new round brings the total raised by Fleet to $25 million and provides a runway for the company to build and sell its platform in a very competitive marketplace. 

Fleet’s co-founder Zach Wasserman is a well-known open-source software engineer who worked on Osquery while at Facebook and founded two companies based on the operating system instrumentation framework for Windows, OS X (macOS), and Linux.

In a statement announcing the new financing, Fleet said its platform has enrolled more than 1.65 million devices at organizations that include Uber, Heroku, Dropbox, Square, Ernst & Young, Wayfair, Schrödinger, and Gusto. 

Fleet is building an open-source software platform to help businesses manage and secure employee laptops, cloud servers across multiple operating systems.
