Kenna Security Finalizes $15M In Series B Funding

On December 7, Kenna Security announced the finalization of $15M in Series B funding led by PeakSpan Capital. Kenna’s security platform creates vulnerability points that quickly hone in on the components of an organization’s IT platform most susceptible to attack from security threats. Kenna Security differentiates in the IT security space by mapping the universe of possible security threats and applying a risk-based, data-driven methodology to identify the points of vulnerability that are most likely to lead to security breaches. The company’s expertise in prioritizing security risks enables it to deliver real-time, actionable business intelligence that helps organizations prepare remediation strategies to mitigate risk. By using Kenna’s vulnerability and risk intelligence platform, companies can focus their remediation efforts on potential threats of highest risk to their IT infrastructure, thereby maximizing their return on investment in security-related risk remediation. The funding will be used to accelerate the company’s product development as well as expand its sales and marketing operations. In addition to PeakSpan Capital, the funding round featured additional participation from existing investors U.S. Venture Partners, Costanoa Venture Capital and Hyde Park Angels. Kenna’s Series B funding raise brings the total funding it has raised to $25M.
