Huntress, an Ellicott City, Maryland-based managed security platform for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), announced that it closed $60 million in Series C funding.
The investment round was led by Sapphire Ventures, with participation from existing investors Forgepoint Capital and JMI Equity.
Sapphire Partner Casber Wang will join the Huntress board of directors, along with Operating Partner Mahau Ma as a board observer.
This funding will fuel enhancements to Huntress’ Managed Security Platform, and the company’s market expansion.
Huntress will continue to meet the evolving needs of its growing base of partners including managed service providers (MSPs) and managed security service providers (MSSPs) who deliver security services to SMBs that otherwise do not possess critical threat detection, analysis, and response capabilities in-house.
"There are 32 million SMBs in the United States alone. At Huntress, our mission is to ensure that all businesses, regardless of size, have access to the cutting-edge solutions they need to continuously operate free from cybersecurity threats,” said Kyle Hanslovan, CEO and Co-Founder of Huntress. “I’m inspired by the passion our investors share for protecting these companies. With Sapphire Ventures, Forgepoint and JMI at our side, I am confident that we can make a real difference.”
