Veriflow, a San Jose, CA-based network breach and outage prevention company, raised $8.2m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Menlo Ventures with participation from current investor New Enterprise Associates (NEA).
The company will use the funds to build its sales force, hire new engineering talent and increase marketing efforts.
Led by James Brear, president and CEO, Veriflow provides a network breach and outage prevention platform that uses formal verification to eliminate change-induced network outages and breaches.
It leverages algorithms that predict all possible network-wide data flow to pinpoint vulnerabilities in the realization of network-wide security and resilience policies – such as network segmentation, service availability, and network compliance standards like PCI and HIPAA – to avoid change-induced incidents.
