MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Addressing the growing enterprise need for intelligent control of users and
applications, ConSentry
Networks today announced an additional $9.4 million in venture funding and a new management team. Accel Partners
led the round and was joined by existing investors DAG Ventures, Invesco Private Capital, Northgate Capital, Translink
Capital, and Vedanta Capital. ConSentry will use the funds to grow and support the channel for its LANShield(tm)
intelligent control platforms
and to expand its global marketing outreach. ConSentry also has added three new senior executives to its ranks: Rod
Kay, executive vice president of marketing and sales; Robert Hon, executive vice president of engineering; and Derek
Granath, vice president of marketing.
"In this tight economic environment, IT departments are looking for smart solutions that can help control their internal
infrastructure and save money at the same time," said Joe Golden, CEO of ConSentry. "This focus on efficient control
gives ConSentry a distinct advantage. Our LANShield platforms offer native Layer 7 intelligence powered by patented,
programmable, wire-speed hardware. Our value proposition is clear: visibility into and control over every flow and
every application on the network, lowering CAPEX with network-embedded control and lowering OPEX with radically
simplified operations and lower support costs."
More than 200 customers around the globe rely on ConSentry for intelligent control. Announced customers include
Town North Bank; Kuraray America; On Demand Group, a subsidiary of SeaChange International; food corporation
Taco Bueno; Mercy Medical Center of Baltimore; global steelmaker POSCO; CCR Group, a subsidiary of
