The newly obtained funds will be used to accelerate growth and finance the company’s go-to-market initiatives for delivering its solutions to midsize enterprises.

“OPAQ Networks has redefined the security-as-a-service market. Its demonstrated progress to date and strategic acquisitions place the company in a position of real market leadership,” said Somerville. “OPAQ Networks joins an existing and prior portfolio of cyber security company investments like Proofpoint and Cloudflare. I look forward to working with the veteran security management team at OPAQ to continue to capitalize on this large and rapidly growing market opportunity.”

OPAQ’s cloud platform provides a fully encrypted private network backbone, along with continuous monitoring, firewall, compliance reporting, DDoS mitigation, microsegmentation, and automated security management capabilities. These capabilities, provided by third-parties and OPAQ’s own technology, are managed from a centralized dashboard.

Last year, OPAQ acquired Drawbridge Networks for $10 million and last month it bought business intelligence firm FourV Systems for an undisclosed sum.
