Skybox Security Raises $50M, Hires New CEO

Late-stage California startup Skybox Security turns the reins over to former Digital Guardian chief executive Mordecai Rosen.

Skybox Security, a late-stage California startup in the security analytics space, has closed a $50 million financing round and hired a new chief executive.

The San Jose company announced Wednesday that former Digital Guardian CEO Mordecai (Mo) Rosen will take the reins at Skybox and manage the company through a new financing round that brings the total raised to $335 million.

The private equity-backed Skybox said investors in the latest round include CVC Growth Funds, Pantheon, and J.P. Morgan. 

Skybox has built and marketed a security analytics platform that helps defenders with security policy and vulnerability management tooling. The company’s product suite includes tools for firewall management, automated change management, network assurance, vulnerability control and threat intelligence.

With a new chief executive on board, the company said the plan is to find revenues in the Skybox Cloud Edition, a software-as-a-service product for managing security policy in hybrid multi-vendor environments.

Before joining Skybox, Rosen worked as president and chief executive at data loss prevention software firm Digital Guardian.
