Kolide, a Boston, MA-based user-focused endpoint security platform for teams, raised $17M in Series B funding.
The round, which brought total funding raised to date to $27m, was led by OpenView Partners, with participation from Matrix Partners, who previously led the Series A.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its go-to market strategy, hire additional engineers and product staff to expand the product’s capabilities.
Led by Jason Meller, CEO & Founder, Kolide provides a SaaS based endpoint security platform which enlists the help of employees directly to fix serious issues it detects on Linux, Mac, and Windows devices. All communication happens over a Slack app that messages end-users when their device no longer meets the security standards set by the company. The messages include customized instructions and even a way for end-users to immediately verify they correctly fixed the problem.
Since its original launch, Kolide has been operating with a lean team to scale their product to 250+ customers.
