Eastwind Networks raised $5.5M seed extension round to modernize cyber security and continue to develop a robust breach analytics and monitoring platform. We were honored to have the news announced in the Wall Street Journal.
The funding comes on the heels of the company’s announcements of both breach detection and analytics for universities and a managed service partner program. Eastwind Networks has been built from the ground up to provide innovative breach detection for the enterprise and government sectors, and has experienced strong organic growth in these vertical markets via a robust channel and MSP go-to-market distribution program.
“Eastwind Networks is leading a new approach to tackling the complexity of the modern cybersecurity paradigm,” said Ron Heinz, founding and managing director at Signal Peak Ventures. “Enterprises and government agencies are looking for a new way forward in the 21st century security landscape — Eastwind goes beyond inside perimeter protections to catch hackers before they commit a breach, and that is precisely where most other security products fail. We believe in their approach to differentiation from other cybersecurity competitors, and more importantly, we believe in the leadership team led by Paul Kraus and the team he has assembled.”
