Funds raised and acquisition made - by Bit9
Bit9, an endpoint security vendor has announced it has raised $38million in investment and also acquired 'Carbon Black'. The interesting thing about Bit9 is its claim to have stopped some of the most advanced attacks seen in recent years such as Flame, Gauss and the malware responsible for the RSA breach. I also like the sound of 'Carbon Black', not a company I have heard of before, but their website says they "prepare your digital enterprise for the inevitable compromise by collecting, and retaining, precisely the data that incident responders need to answer the critical questions of any investigation" - which is a key part of enterprise forensic readiness.
