Verkada, a San Mateo, CA-based market leader in cloud-managed enterprise building security and management, announced a $205 million Series D funding round with new and existing venture partners.
The round was led by Linse Capital, with participation from MSD Partners, L.P., and existing investors, including Felicis Ventures, Next47, Sequoia Capital, Meritech Capital, and First Round Capital in the round.
Since its inception in 2016, Verkada has raised over 360 million dollars in funding, with the most recent round valuing the business at $3.2 billion.
Verkada plans to use the funds to further its mission of creating the operating system for the physical world by expanding its existing offerings, developing new product lines, hiring across all functions, and expanding geographically.
"We founded Verkada in 2016 with the vision to modernize the world of physical security—one of the last industries to experience a migration from on-premise solutions to cloud-based software. We started with security cameras and an intuitive cloud-based platform, and in just six years, we've expanded to include five additional product lines that help enterprises to protect and manage their people and assets," said Filip Kaliszan, Co-Founder and CEO of Verkada. "This latest commitment of capital is further validation from investors that we are well positioned to capture the opportunity that lies ahead."
