(Update: The company says its most recent funding, totaling $10 million, its fourth round, took place in 2005, and said no recent investment has been made. We don’t know why PEWeek reported this. Correction is made below. Original story written April 5, 2007. Also, the company said the mascot carried in the Network World article was never its its logo, and has no idea where the publication got it. VentureBeat was wrong to assume it was the company’s logo).
ForeScout Technologies, a Cupertino, Ca. provider of network access control technology that “scouts” out in front of a network to anticipate possible threats, has not raised around $11.25 million in a fourth round of funding.
Return backers include Accel Partners, Amadeus Capital Partners, MeritechCapital Partners and Pintango Venture Capital, according to PE Week. The company has reporteldy raised over $43 million in total VC funding since its 2000.
The company’s charming old mascot logo, a dog apparently with an injured eye caused by encountering a skirmish while “scouting” around (see early story about Forescout here), has been replaced by something more corporate.
The company is reporting strong results.
