Headquarters: Redwood City, Calif.

CEO: Greg Martin
New Funding: $4 million
Round: A
Backers: Google Ventures, Paladin Capital Group, Tom Reilly (Cloudera CEO), Hugh Njemanze (former CTO and Founder of ArcSight)

Instead of dealing with threats one by one, ThreatStream allows companies to take quicker action against threats by drawing connections between them through its Optic platform. Until organizations can learn to analyze and get ahead of threats, they will continue to be vulnerable, Martin said. The SaaS-based program operates within a public or private cloud and utilizes Internet crowd-sourcing for better threat indicator insight and machine-learning from within the organization to further detect threats. The new funding will help ThreatStream further develop the product with additional layers for enterprise and government clients.
