Today we are excited to announce that we closed additional funding from Bessemer and Sequoia and are thrilled to have Bessemer join our team. David Cowan joins our board and he brings a long history of investing in great security companies including Verisign and Good Technology.
Many of our customers are already seeing the benefits of this additional funding with new data centers opening around the world, battery life improvements, and many other new features. We have plenty of new enhancements in the pipeline that we’ll share more about shortly.
We’re also using the funding to add amazing talent. We’ve brought on new team members including Ryan Smith to lead our threat research, Shuman Talukdar to lead BD, and Jason Carrico to lead sales. Ryan comes from Lookout and Shuman and Jason were both previously at Symantec. We’ve also added Larry Link to our board of directors. Larry was previously with Palo Alto Networks as their SVP of Worldwide Sales taking them from pre-revenue all the way through IPO.
Mobile security is going to be a major challenge for organizations, companies, and enterprises going forward and we believe we are building the best technology and team to tackle those challenges.
