LONDON, June 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Company Expands Footprint with New Boston Office and Announces Anomali Detect, its First-Ever Industry Conference
Anomali, the provider of the market-leading ThreatStream threat intelligence and Anomali Enterprise platforms, today announced it has exceeded its goals for the first half of 2016 after experiencing 170 percent growth year-over-year. As a result of several key milestones in 2016 - including $30 million in Series C funding, expansion of its product portfolio and rebranding of the company - Anomali has experienced significant growth and has established an East Coast office in Boston to support growing customer demand. In addition to expanding its U.S. presence, Anomali will also host it's first-ever industry event, Anomali Detect, in Washington D.C. from Sept. 11-13.
Anomali Detect is a one-of-a-kind event that will offer sessions and workshops targeted at identifying the most effective ways to leverage threat intelligence to increase the effectiveness of an organization's cyber defenses.
Anomali, formerly known as ThreatStream, provides products that unlock the value of threat intelligence for security operations and incident-response personnel. In early 2016, the company rebranded to Anomali at the 2016 RSA Conference in San Francisco, Calif. and launched two new products - Anomali Reports and Anomali Enterprise. The products address the threat intelligence big data and scalability challenges, provide deep retrospective analysis, and help to realize the goal of an intelligence-driven security operations center. Anomali's new products provide relevant threat intelligence to discover and track attackers at each phase of the attack chain.
In April, the company announced it raised $30 million in Series C funding. The round, led by Institutional Venture Partners, included significant investments from General Catalyst Partners, GV (formerly Google Ventures) and Paladin Capital Group. The round raised Anomali's total funding to more than $56 million since launching in 2013.
"The momentum we're experiencing in 2016 is a testament to our team, our customers and our partners who are all dedicated to sharing threat intelligence data and best practices and improving our community's security posture," said Hugh Njemanze, CEO of Anomali. "Over the past several months Anomali has joined the Facebook ThreatExchange community, become an associate member of the Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center, and added a variety of partners to the Anomali Alliance of Preferred Partners Store including most recently Taia Global, Intel 471, BlueLiv and Media Trust. This momentum is the result of our dedicated efforts to best serve our customers and provide protection against and ultimately thwart cybersecurity threats."
The company's efforts have also resulted in numerous prestigious industry acknowledgements. Anomali has been awarded a Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Award, was recognized as the Company of the Year in the 2016 Best in Biz Awards, and most recently was named in the 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America list.
The Anomali Boston office is located at 179 South Street, and houses sales and customer service personnel. Additional positions are currently open at the Boston location. To learn more, please visit: https://www.anomali.com/company/careers.
