CrowdStrike, an Irvine, California-based global provider of security technologies and services focused on identifying advanced threats and targeted attacks, raised $30m in Series B financing.
The round was led by Accel Partners with participation from founding investor Warburg Pincus. In conjunction with the funding, Sameer Gandhi, Partner, Accel Partners, will join the board of directors.
The company intends to expand its sales efforts.
Co-founded by George Kurtz, President/CEO, Dmitri Alperovitch and Gregg Marston, CrowdStrike provides a cloud-based threat protection platform that leverages execution profiling and predictive security analytics to allow companies to proactively respond to advanced threats and hunt, query, and gain insight into all activity across the enterprise.
Its recently introduced CrowdStrike Falcon Platform enables enterprises to identify unknown malware, detect zero-day threats, pinpoint advanced adversaries and attribution, and prevent damage from targeted attacks in real-time.
