Threat detection company Pwnie Express announced that it raised $12.9 million in a Series B round led by Ascent Venture Partners with investments from MassMutual Ventures LLC and existing investors .406 Ventures, Fairhaven Capital and the Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies (VCET).
Headquartered in Massachusetts, Pwnie Express provides continuous threat detection for wireless and wired devices in and around the workplace, which are potentially open pathways for attackers.
“Pwnie Express is uniquely positioned to deliver the device detection, identification and threat assessment platform required to secure business-critical data and infrastructure,” said Matt Fates, General Partner at Ascent Venture Partners who will be joining Pwnie’s board of directors.
Founded in 2009, Pwnie Express has raised $18 million in total funding. It did not specify what the funds would be for.
