Previous investors Granite Ventures, Cisco, Trident Capital and Epic Ventures also participated in this round, it said.
The new funding will support the company’s growth and operations, particularly in the areas of sales and marketing, and enable continued development on the cloud security platform as well as product innovations.
Jeff Byrne, senior analyst at Taneja Group, said, “Next-generation data centres need next-generation security. As organisations seek to avoid security breaches, meet new requirements (such as the NSA’s two-man rule to restrict access to sensitive information) and address audit and risk, they’ll look toward more effective solutions, including role-based monitoring and alerting capabilities, to more quickly and accurately detect and block threats.”
“The new, dynamic datacenter will be automated and policy-based. HyTrust’s focus on security and control, combined with growing awareness about these issues, will likely propel the company’s growth in 2013 and beyond.”
“As computing and data center operations increasingly become virtualized and hosted in cloud environments, organisations need to approach threat prevention differently to protect corporate assets and reduce attack vectors,” added Arvind Sodhani, President of Intel Capital and Intel Executive Vice President.
