Intigua raises USD8.6m in series A funding led by Bessemer Venture Partners
Enterprise cloud management company Intigua has secured USD8.6m in series A financing led by Bessemer Venture Partners (BVP) with participation from seed investors Cedar Fund and individual investors.
Intigua aims to solve a major challenge faced by IT when transitioning critical applications to cloud infrastructures: how to extend deeply-embedded and critical monitoring, management and security technology never intended for the massive scale and dynamic nature of today’s private, public and hybrid clouds.
Intigua virtualises the management layer, transforming management applications into on-demand data centre services that are more scalable and agile. This also enables IT to use their existing management applications to manage all systems across physical, private and public cloud infrastructures from a single screen.
“Bessemer has been investing in industry-leading IT infrastructure companies for decades, and have never been more excited about the potential for innovation in this arena,” says Bessemer partner Bob Goodman who joins the Intigua board. “Virtualization and cloud computing are forcing a re-think of infrastructure management. We believe Intigua has a unique and elegant solution that addresses today’s key challenges.”
BVP has demonstrated success investing in cloud and infrastructure management companies such as BladeLogic (acquired by BMC), Veritas (acquired by Symantec), VeriSign, and Box.
“We’re helping enterprises move confidently to cloud infrastructures without compromising SLAs and governance, knowing their monitoring and management solutions will scale to meet this dynamic new environment,” says Shimon Hason, Intigua chief executive. “Having a partner like Bessemer, with their experience and proven vision in this space, is invaluable.”
Also joining the board is Ram Metser, former chief executive of Guardium, the infrastructure security company acquired by IBM in 2009.
