Virsec today announced a $100 million Series C investment from an unmatched community of industry players and company builders. The completion of the round brings total funding in the company to $137 million. With focus and urgency from the White House as well as private sector leaders to aggressively expand cybersecurity advancement and collaboration for the purposes of national and economic defense, Virsec has assembled a pool of expertise and resources to greatly expand its team, and power an acceleration of its groundbreaking innovations.
“The world runs on software, and with the onslaught of damaging attacks to it, the world is also in a cyber crisis. That is why Virsec developed an unprecedented, radical, and multi-patented approach to fully protect software while it is executing, regardless of its environment,” said Dave Furneaux, Chief Executive Officer of Virsec. “We are able to provide our customers a ‘golden image’ of their software, bugs and all, and therefore we instantaneously detect and stop attacks before they happen. This is the type of game-changing technology that the market immediately needs. We are extraordinarily grateful for the community of investors, advisors, and security practitioners that have assembled around the company to help us achieve our mission.”
