SANTA CLARA, Calif.—Intel Capital, the venture capital arm of Intel Corp., led a $20 million round of investment in Solera Networks Inc., a provider of network security analytics, Solera said Monday (Jan. 30).
In addition to Intel, existing investors Allegis Capital, Signal Peak Ventures and Trident Capital also joined the Series D funding round, Solera (Salt Lake City) said. The company said it would use the new funds to help support the company’s growth by further expanding global sales, marketing and product development initiatives.

"We see companies continuing to realize that real-time, intelligent incident response is now an essential component of their security strategy."
