Securonix, Inc., a leader in Next-Gen SIEM and XDR, has announced that it has received more than $1 billion growth investment led by Vista Equity Partners (“Vista”), a leading global investment firm focused exclusively on enterprise software, data and technology-enabled businesses, with participation from Volition Capital and Eight Roads Ventures.
The new funding allows Securonix to make significant investments in global talent acquisition, adding senior leaders across engineering, cloud operations, threats labs, and sales and marketing. As a Vista portfolio company, Securonix will benefit from its industry expertise with next-gen SaaS companies and a vast ecosystem to help scale operations and accelerate product innovation.
“We solve a very tough problem that requires excellence across multiple domains, including product engineering, threat detection/hunting, data science, and operations. This funding will help us accelerate investments in these areas and continue to provide a world-class service to our customers. We pioneered User Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) with an analytics-centric approach to security monitoring, extended to next-gen SIEM with a scalable cloud-native architecture, and introduced Open XDR and SOAR capabilities to deliver a true end-to-end security operations fabric for threat detection and response. Our goal is to extend this to the application layer and to OT and IoT. Vista’s proven track record of partnering with next-gen, hypergrowth SaaS companies will advance our mission and allow us to help our customers solve these problems.” Sachin Nayyar, CEO and co-founder, Securonix
