Anomali Raises $30 Million for Early Threat Detection

Anomali, a start-up based in Redwood City, California, raised $30 million in series C funding for its ThreatStream threat intelligence and Anomali Enterprise platforms.

The company, which was previously known as ThreatStream, delivers early detection and identification of adversaries in a network. The company says this makes it possible to correlate tens of millions of threat indicators against real time network activity logs and up to a year or more of forensic log data.

The new funding, led by Institutional Venture Partners (IVP), includes significant investments from General Catalyst Partners, GV (formerly Google Ventures) and Paladin Capital Group. The round raises Anomali’s total funding to more than $56 million since launching in 2013.

"Anomali is entering a very exciting era of cybersecurity, and we couldn’t be happier to have the support and backing of our customers and partners. Our rebrand, new product suite and this latest round of funding validates our vision for reducing business risk for large enterprises and small to medium sized businesses," said Hugh Njemanze, CEO of Anomali. "We are truly in a unique position as the only security vendor who can scale to meet the challenge of making ever increasing amounts of threat intelligence useful for the entire security team while detecting and preventing attacks enabled by long adversary network dwell times.”
