SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan. 9, 2001– SecurityFocus.com, the leading provider of security intelligence services for business, today announced that it has closed on an additional $1 million of Series B funding, bringing the total Series B to $2.5 million.

Security intelligence encompasses the latest information about software vulnerabilities, viruses, breaking news and attacks, which enable companies to prevent security breaches. Without the benefit of security intelligence, attackers can go right through correctly configured security products and gain full access and control of companies’ data and information.
“We are excited about the launch of our new set of security intelligence services,” said Arthur Wong, chief executive officer of SecurityFocus.com. “This investment enables us to expand our leadership position beyond our existing licensing services and reach a broader base of customers.”
