Venture Capital Funding Starting To Dry Up

After speculation that venture capital funding around cybersecurity would slow down after years of overzealous investments, it looks like the slowdown might have arrived in the first half of 2016. According to a report by CB Insights, venture capital funding is on a run rate for 2016 to surpass $3 billion across 300 deals. That is down from $3.75 billion invested across 336 deals in 2015, the company found. However, that does not mean we haven’t seen some blockbuster funding announcements in 2016. Some notable cybersecurity companies landing funding so far this year include Cylance ($100 million), ForeScout Technologies ($76 million), Malwarebytes ($50 million) and PhishMe ($42.5 million).
