vArmour, a cloud security company, recently raised $44 million in a series E funding round led by AllegisCyber and NightDragon along with the participation from existing investors. The Mountain View-based company stated the new investment will support to further develop its security solutions that protect data and applications across the public and private cloud environments.
Founded in 2011, vArmour is an API-driven cloud security company that helps companies to consistently apply security controls across hybrid clouds. Its security approach includes auto-discovering hybrid cloud applications, computing infrastructure-independent communication policies, and measuring effective enforcement to maintain continuous compliance. vArmour claims its core technology Conform bridges security and compliance policy requirements for public and private cloud.
“Security and IT pros are having a difficult time maintaining consistent security policy across their private and public cloud environments, so we’ve designed Conform to help these teams manage the numerous compliance requirements they have to deal with. By taming the cloud, vArmour brings peace of mind all the way to the board room, enabling further cloud adoption and aiding with regulatory compliance,” said Tim Eades, CEO of vArmour
Speaking on the new investment Bob Ackerman, Founder and Managing Director at AllegisCyber, said, “Organizations are deploying multiple clouds for business agility and reduced cost, but the rapid adoption is making it a nightmare for security and IT pros to provide consistent security controls across cloud platforms. vArmour is already servicing this need with hundreds of customers, and we’re excited to help vArmour grow to the next stage of development.”
