Just a few months after its strategy change, Reflex Systems (formerly Reflex Security) was able to secure its first round of funding.
RFA Management Company, an Atlanta-based private investment firm, provided $8.5 million.
Maybe the previous effort to lead the market as a virtualization security company consumed all the money and now Reflex needs more cash for its second attempt.
Maybe Reflex tried to raise some money in the early days but VCs didn’t want to bet on a virtsec startup.
Maybe the OEM agreement that Reflex signed with Dell last month increased the confidence in their new solution.
Anyway the company now has the help it needs to compete against the crowd in the virtualization management space.
