Bluebox Security raises $18 million in Series B funding
Bluebox Security is a mobile security company that has raised $18 million in Series B funding led by Tenaya Capital with participation from existing investors Andreessen Horowitz, Andreas Bechtolsheim (Sun Microsystems co-founder), and SV Angel. Brian Melton of Tenaya will be joining the board of directors. Bluebox previously raised $9.5 million in a Series A round.
“This is the best team I’ve seen in this space in the last five to ten years,” stated Andreessen Horowitz partner and Bluebox board member Scott Weiss. “They know security inside and out and understand the need to create solutions that work for both IT and end users, who of course don’t like to be inconvenienced by security.”
