Invincea, Inc., a Fairfax, VA-based provider of advanced malware threat detection, breach prevention and forensic threat intelligence solutions, raised $16m in a Series C equity funding.
The round was led by new investors Aeris Capital and Dell Ventures with participation from existing investors Grotech Ventures, Harbert Ventures, and New Atlantic Ventures.
Additionally, the company announced it acquired Sandboxie, a globally deployed competitor in the virtualized containment solutions market.
