Thinking bigger to embrace the pace of cybersecurity change

Thinking bigger to embrace the pace of cybersecurity change

Today, LimaCharlie proudly announced its Series A funding round, a $10.2 million reminder that the cybersecurity industry is ripe for change. As we celebrate our progress, we also reflect on the changing tides of technology to understand how we got here and where we’re going next. 

Where we’ve been

Over the years, the security industry has constantly evolved alongside new and changing threats, attack surfaces, techniques and tactics. And although there are thousands of vendors eager to wipe away all of your security problems, the reality is that more options don’t always equate to better solutions. 

Think about it: the industry has historically been dominated by countless black-box solutions under many abbreviations — EDR, XDR, SIEM, SOAR and more. There are more than 4,600 products to choose from, but as organizations grow and mature, they find that simply connecting multiple products built by different companies into one meaningful “solution” isn’t as easy as before. 

That’s why LimaCharlie isn’t just another tool. It’s a different approach to how security capabilities are delivered.

This type of innovation-fueled shift is similar to the evolution of cloud computing. Remember 10 or 15 years ago when software vendors would build a product, package it in a box and then sell it to companies to install? It was effective at the time, but something fundamentally changed as the industry matured, and cloud providers completely transformed the way you thought about and bought software. 

Where we’re going

This fundamental shift in cloud computing resembles what LimaCharlie is doing in cybersecurity. With our new investment, LimaCharlie is changing the way organizations operate by giving them more control and flexibility than ever before. Rather than relying on multiple tools that aren’t designed to talk to each other, we’re giving modern businesses reliable infrastructure to assemble all of their tools in a meaningful, scalable way.

At LimaCharlie, we’ve always strived to think bigger. Providing a platform that’s marginally better than what’s already on the market isn’t enough – we want to be different, and we want to improve the way business is done. We’re thankful to our community of customers and investors for embracing our vision of a public cloud model for cybersecurity, and we’re excited to continue giving businesses the security foundation they need to reach their full potential.
