Skyport Raises $30 Million for New Approach to Security

Skyport Systems, a start-up based in Mountain View, California, announced $30 million in Series B funding for its Hyper-Secured Infrastructure solutions.  Product plans have not yet been disclosed.

Skyport said it is working on a fundamentally new approach to security, which requires a fundamentally new approach to secure computing.  Its goal is to ensure the security of mission-critical IT and corporate assets.

“Network security models today have been compromised, due to reliance on perimeter security and static network policies that fail to address the current threat landscape,” said Stefan Dyckerhoff, CEO of Skyport Systems and managing director at Sutter Hill Ventures. “Skyport will use this funding to deliver a fundamentally new approach and solution to protecting business’ most mission-critical IT control infrastructure and applications.”

The new funding was led by Index Ventures, with participation from Intel Capital and existing investor Sutter Hill Ventures. The Series B round brings total Skyport funding to $37M.

  • Skyport is headed by Stefan Dyckerhoff, who previously was GM of routing and switching at Juniper Networks, which he originally joined as employee #33 working in chip design.
