As part of this latest round of financing, FireMon was deemed critical to National Security by the United States Treasury. This elite designation qualified the company for US Government loans as part of the CARES Act and points to the importance FireMon solutions play to public sector customers. Ultimately the company decided to pursue commercial financing and chose Silicon Valley Bank as its lending partner.

“FireMon is the category leader in Network Security Policy Management (NSPM). This latest injection of financing allows us to continue to innovate for a market that is truly exploding. Network security policy as we know it is changing and our unique agile approach to NSPM is what sets us apart from traditional approaches that are increasingly ineffective, especially in cloud and hybrid environments. Having the United States government deem FireMon as critical to national security further underscores the importance of network security policy and our work to innovate,” said Satin H. Mirchandani, CEO of FireMon.
