Threat Detection And Response Company Blumira Closes $2.6 Million
- Ann Arbor, Michigan-based cybersecurity company Blumira announced recently that it raised $2.6 million in funding
Ann Arbor, Michigan-based cybersecurity company Blumira announced recently that it raised $2.6 million in funding. And this investment will enable the company to continue innovating on the latest threat detection and response technology. This round of funding was led by Chicago-based M25 with additional investment from Array Ventures.
Launched in 2018, Blumira has strategically grown its team with engineering, security, marketing, sales, and operations hires that previously held positions at Duo Security, Censys, and the National Security Agency (NSA).
The current rise in remote work brings cybersecurity challenges with increased reliance on remote access, collaboration, and productivity tools. And Blumira addresses these challenges by automating security operation workflows to enable customers to identify threats faster and earlier, then respond by blocking or containing their impact.
Looking to disrupt legacy SIEM platforms (security information & event management) in the market, Blumira’s cloud-delivered solution has been designed to help teams with limited security expertise deploy threat detection capabilities in a matter of hours for immediate security value.
“We are dedicated to providing real security value while continuing to grow the local Midwest infosec community. Our mission is to give customers a way to defend against the latest attacks – even if they don’t have a SOC (security operations center).”
— Blumira CEO Steve Fuller
“Remote work has resulted in more potential for breaches than ever before, as organizations struggle without security resources and visibility. Blumira integrates with any existing service, deploys in a matter of hours, and provides immediate value by identifying threats and automating remediation. We’re excited that this effort is led by a first-class team and excellent advisors.”
— M25 partner Mike Asem
“The Blumira team has built a simple, easy-to-use product that customers consistently love and need, especially in this era of remote work.”
