Sentry, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of software error monitoring solutions, raised $40m in Series C funding.
The round was led by Accel, with participation from existing investor New Enterprise Associates, Inc.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate product development and marketing efforts and grow its team.
Led by David Cramer, co-founder and CEO, Sentry provides a cloud platform to eliminate the potential financial loss associated with defective software by making application monitoring available to all teams. The open-source, agentless error tracking platform pinpoints exact errors with detail developers need to see and fix crashes in real time. This enables companies to embrace DevOps and other innovations that continuously release and iterate applications, boosting efficiency and improving user experiences.
The company’s cloud-hosted services are used to proactively find and fix software errors for more than 50,000 organizations worldwide—and many of the world’s best software companies—including Airbnb, Atlassian, Disney, Dropbox, HomeAway, Microsoft, PayPal, Peloton, Pinterest, Square, Symantec and Uber.
Today, Sentry also announced it has extended its support for native applications, which allows developers for mobile, gaming, IoT and other embedded applications to debug faster with alerts, context and root-cause analysis. Sentry for Native enables developers to move feedback into the development cycle by capturing every single exception and crash users encounter, while also surfacing trends to prioritize issues and uncovering potential issue impact.
