Michigan-based cybersecurity startup Blumira said a series A funding round generated $10.3 million, bringing the company's total funding to $12.9 million to date, according to VentureBeat. The company said it plans to use the fund for workforce acquisition and to expand its security information and event management solution.
Blumira's platform allows customer IT administrators to use APIs to establish cloud security for Microsoft 365, Amazon Web Services and other cloud infrastructures, ensuring speedy deployment.
