Security Startup FireEye Lands $50 Million VC Round, Preps For IPO

If you've never heard of FireEye, that's probably going to change in the coming months. The Milpitas, Calif.-based security vendor, run by former McAfee CEO Dave DeWalt, closed a $50 million venture capital round that brings its total funding to date to more than $100 million.

FireEye plans to spend the money on bringing in more executive talent. There's even talk of an IPO later this year, according to VentureBeat.
