LimaCharlie Banks $5.45 Million in Seed Funding

LimaCharlie, a California company supplying tools to run an MSSP or SOC on a pay-as-you-use model, has attracted $5.45 million in seed round financing.

LimaCharlie said the funding round was led by Susa Ventures, with participation from Xerox Ventures, CoFound Partners, Long Journey Ventures, Sands Capital, StoneMill Ventures, SNR -4 dB, as well as existing investor, Lytical Ventures. 

In a note announcing the investment, LimaCharlie said it has now raised a total of $6.35 million, at a current valuation of $24 million.  The company plans to use the money to expand its engineering team and speed up the rollout of new technologies.

Based in Walnut, Calif., LimaCharlie provides an ecosystem of cloud-native tools and infrastructure used for cybersecurity operations, covering a variety of use cases from log aggregation, detection, automation and response, to file and integrity monitoring, Yara scanning and other. 

“The API-first approach and integration with existing CI/CD pipelines make it easy to manage security operations at scale, or build products on top of LimaCharlie reducing the time to market for cybersecurity startups - something that was not possible before,” the company said of its product line.
