Corelight, a network detection and response (NDR) startup, has raised USD 75 million in a Series D funding round led by Energy Impact Partners (EIP), with participation from Accel, General Catalyst, Insight Partners, Osage University Partners, H.I.G. Growth Partners, Capital One Ventures, CrowdStrike Falcon Fund, and Gaingels. Corelight’s total funding following this round stands at USD 160 million.
The company expects to use the funding to develop new data and cloud solutions, grow its presence in the global NDR market, and expand its team globally.
Corelight indicated that it expects to remain private for the next few years and raise additional funding before it considers going public. The investment in Corelight also marks the second growth investment of cybersecurity startup CrowdStrike’s Falcon Fund. The fund invests in companies developing solutions that can be integrated with its endpoint protection platform.
