Tempered Networks Raises $15 million in Series A Funding

Led by Ignition Partners with participation from IDG Ventures, funding furthers commitment to protecting critical infrastructure and information against cyber security threats

SEATTLE, MARCH 3, 2015 Tempered Networks, Inc., provider of secure connectivity for critical infrastructure and information, today announced it has raised $15 million in a series A funding round led by Ignition Partners with participation from IDG Ventures. This brings the total amount of financing the company has raised to $22 million. The new funding will be used to build the company’s sales, marketing, and engineering teams and expand its distribution channels.

Tempered Networks also announced that John Connors, Managing Partner at Ignition Ventures, has joined its Board of Directors.

“The proliferation of connected devices is increasing enterprises’ exposure to security breaches by orders of magnitude,” said Connors. “Tempered Networks’ industrial hardened solution and world-class team will be mission critical to companies needing to secure their connected assets, across edge, corporate, and industrial networks.”

Since being commercialized in 2012, the company’s break-through technology has protected critical infrastructure—typically controlled by ICS (Industrial Control Systems) and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems—against cyber security attacks. Tempered Networks has customers in the manufacturing, oil & gas, and utilities sectors which employ its solution to achieve a hardened, resilient, and secure network. In 2014, Tempered Networks was named 2014 North American Entrepreneurial Company of the Year by Frost and Sullivan as well as an SC Magazine 2014 Security Innovator.

“Ignition’s deep domain expertise as both investors in and operators of enterprise software companies, made them a great fit to lead this round,” said Jeff Hussey, President and CEO of Tempered Networks and founder of F5 Networks. “We have worked with both firms successfully in the past and look forward to collaborating with them as we continue to grow and extend our reach in the market.
