vArmour, a Mountain View, CA-based API-driven cloud security company, raised $44M in Series E funding.
The round was led by AllegisCyber and NightDragon, with participation from existing investors.
Founded in 2011 and led by Tim Eades, CEO, vArmour provides a security solution that protects data and applications across public and private cloud environments, especially for organizations in heavily regulated industries.
Its solutions are based on significant IP built within its approach to application security, a method for identifying, securing and controlling workloads where data and processes are dispersed and traditional firewalls are ineffective. vArmour’s holistic approach includes auto-discovering hybrid cloud applications, computing infrastructure-independent communication policies, and measuring effective enforcement to reduce attack surface and maintain continuous compliance.
Hundreds of companies worldwide use the vArmour Application Controller to apply security controls across hybrid clouds, reducing the attack surface and maintaining continuous compliance.
The company is also backed by Highland Capital Partners, Redline Capital, Citi Ventures, and Telstra.
