Cybersecurity Startup Sees Exponential Demand in the Threat Detection & Response Market

Ann Arbor, Michigan — October 13, 2020Blumira, a cybersecurity startup based in Ann Arbor, announced today that the company saw record growth last quarter in new bookings, while doubling employee hires and increasing new customers. The growth is due to the company’s success in simplifying threat detection and response to bring enterprise-level security to the mid-market through a software as a service (SaaS) model.

Blumira’s customers continue to expand across financial services, government, healthcare and technology industries. Customers include manufacturers like BraunAbility, National Machinery; local governments like City of Crescent City and Ottawa County; as well as technology, network and telecommunications providers like TAS United, Merit Network and robotics company, FANUC.

“Blumira truly democratizes security operations by placing continuous monitoring within the reach of most companies,” said Arlie Hartman, Director of Security, Global IT at BraunAbility. “I couldn’t find another solution that required minimal effort at a reasonable price.”

This dedication to excellence in customer experience is reflected in the latest G2 Fall 2020 Grid® Reports results. Blumira has been ranked as a high performer in the SIEM (Security Information and Event Management), Incident Response and IPDS (Intrusion Detection and Prevention System) categories. Blumira was also ranked as the product that users are most likely to recommend, the easiest to do business with, the easiest to administrate, use and set up, as well as providing the best support.

“Blumira has strong beliefs about how defensive security should be built in order for people to successfully defend against threats,” said Blumira CTO Matt Warner. “By bridging internal security and development teams, Blumira is able to achieve what other SIEMs are unable to, at scale.”

In August 2020, Blumira announced its seed raise. The company has doubled its employee count this year, strategically hiring experienced security professionals.
