Israel : DATA CENTER SECURITY companies raise total of $26M in separate funding rounds

August 23, 2014

Due to the IT virtualization, from servers to networks, the need for a new breed of security is increasing, different from the existing security solutions that are customized for conventional data centers and networks.

Israeli security startup GuardiCore closed a $11 million Series A funding round, while another company engaged in the field, called vArmour, raised $15 million in a Series C funding round.

Both the firms are addressing growing and changing security demands that come with virtualization.

The two companies say that conventional security methods fail to address the fast evolution of data center architecture.

Ex-Palo Alto Networks CEOs, Dave Stevens and Lane Bess, have also recently become members of vArmour's board.

According to Stevens, "Virtualization is driving a revolutionary change in architecture across the data center. Enterprises are simply not able to use legacy security and networking technologies to protect today s highly virtualized environments. The vArmour team has been able to design a solution, unencumbered by legacy thinking or technological trappings, that meets these challenges in a radically new and more effective way. I fully expect them to reform how enterprises protect their new, data defined perimeter in today s reality of pervasive virtualization, constant threats and ongoing security breaches."
