ConSentry Raises $20 Million for Enterprise Security Solutions

ConSentry Networks, a start-up based in Milpitas, California, raised $20 million in an oversubscribed Series D round of funding for its secure LAN solutions. ConSentry's LANShield family of products provides network admission control to restrict who can come onto the LAN, full Layer 7 visibility into all user activities, control over user access to authorized resources through role-based provisioning, and threat control to prevent zero-hour attacks from compromising network availability.

ConSentry plans to use the funds to build a stronger worldwide presence as demand for LAN control and security solutions gain momentum in Asia and Europe, rapidly approaching the uptake in the U.S. market.

Existing investors Accel Partners, INVESCO Private Capital, and Sequoia Capital participated in the new round, joined by new investor Duff Ackerman & Goodrich (DAG) Ventures. ConSentry's total funding now stands at $51 million.
