Ex-NSA Chief, Endgame, Paladin
Endgame, a provider of cyber security solutions, closed a $23 million Series B round led by Paladin Capital Group, with participation from Bessemer Venture Partners, Columbia Capital, Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers and TechOperators.
In addition to the funding, Endgame is also adding ex-National Security Agency director Lieutenant General Kenneth A. Minihan to its board. Minihan currently serves as the managing director of Paladin Capital.
Endgame’s technology looks at what it says is billions of mysterious “data points” to give you a clear picture of an attack that is coming or an attack in progress. It then provides you with “tactical actions” to take within seconds. What those tactical actions translates to is unknown, though it sounds like the company helps you put up even stronger defenses against assailants depending on the attack vector.
Endgame explained in a statement that it will use the money mostly for customer acquisition, focusing both on expanding its current “federal customer base” as well as getting more attention from the private sector.
