The company’s technology inspects common network protocols and files to identify and stop advanced threats that bypass traditional signature-based systems, while remaining invisible to the malware itself by using full-system emulation. The company is backed by Redpoint Ventures and e.ventures.
The company, headquartered in Redwood City CA, is led by Jens Andreassen (CEO). Lastline elected to keep its revenues undisclosed.
The executive team includes Christopher Kruegel and Giovanni Vigna.
The board of directors includes Andreas Von Blottnitz and John Walecka.
The company has raised an estimated total of $27.4 million via private unregistered security offerings.
