Cloud Security Firm Bitglass Raises $70 Million
Silicon Valley-based cloud security firm Bitglass this week announced that it raised $70 million in a Series D funding round, which brings the total raised by the company to date to over $150 million.
New investor Quadrille Capital and existing investors Future Fund, New Enterprise Associates (NEA), Norwest and Singtel Innov8 participated in the funding round. Bitglass says it will use the money to continue its growth in the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) market.
“Cloud adoption is disruptive of incumbents securing networks, servers and other infrastructure,” said Nat Kausik, CEO of Bitglass. “Our Next-Gen CASB uniquely secures against data leakage and threats without installing more hardware and software.”
Founded in 2013, Bitglass provides cloud security solutions designed to help enterprises protect apps and devices against zero-day and other types of threats.
