Netography, a San Francisco, CA-based autonomous network security platform that serves as enterprises’ virtual border security, raised additional seed capital from Robin Vasan’s Mango Capital.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
In addition to the funding, Netography added Bill Magnuson to its board, Gus Cunningham to management team.
Gus Cunningham, former COO of Prolexic, has joined the company as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). Bill Magnuson, co-founder and CEO of Braze, has joined the company’s board of directors.
Led by Barrett Lyon and Dan Murphy, Netography provides a cloud-based service that works as virtual border security, allowing security operations and network teams to work smarter. It leverages real-time flow data produced by network devices to continuously and automatically detect and then remediate or block malicious traffic such as DDoS attacks, botnets, data extraction, login attempts and more.
Cunningham reunites with his former Prolexic colleagues. He joined Prolexic when the company had less than $2 million in annual revenue, and grew it to almost $50 million in annual revenue, prior to its sale to Akamai. After Prolexic, he joined ScrapeSentry, a spin-off of leading managed security services (MSS) firm Sentor, as CEO. There he also grew the business over 200% before selling it to Distil Networks. Cunningham also previously built out the MSS business for Globix in EMEA.
