ThreatConnect originally launched its Platform in 2014, gained market
leadership in the threat intelligence platform market, and has since
grown to serve more than 1,600 organizations worldwide. In 2017 the
company added advanced orchestration and automation capabilities to the
Platform, expanding its value to a broader security operations market.
In just the last year, the usage of these advanced orchestration and
automation “Playbooks” in the Platform has increased more than 40%, now
executing more than 23,000 Playbooks per month per customer on average.
In 2018, ThreatConnect was selected by Inc5000 as one of the fastest
growing companies in the US, and by Washington Business Journal as one
of the DC area’s 75 Fastest Growing Companies. The company’s growth,
along with its value proposition to change how businesses manage their
security, drove PSG’s interest in investing in the company.
ThreatConnect CEO Adam Vincent said, “PSG’s deep experience investing in
technology companies that are reshaping the way business is done make
them an ideal partner for ThreatConnect. PSG portfolio companies are
helping other businesses run smarter, cheaper, and faster. And, since
ThreatConnect is helping companies with smarter, faster decision making
in security, this seemed like a very natural fit.”
The new funding is aimed at accelerating ThreatConnect’s go-to-market
strategy, supporting further development of the Platform, and expanding
its ability to build a successful community of customers and partners.
The company plans to increase its staff by more than 50% over the next
12 months both domestically and abroad, which is expected to further
accelerate product and revenue growth in the coming years.
PSG Managing Director Gopi Vaddi said, “Our vision for digital
transformation of businesses through software aligns well with
ThreatConnect’s vision for intelligence-driven security. Security
software is one of the priority sectors for PSG, and we are excited to
have found a high quality organization in ThreatConnect led by Adam
Vincent and his team – a relationship we cultivated for several years.
