California is a base to 33 percent of the privately owned companies, while Texas is tied for fifth with 5 percent.

CB Insights recently mapped the most well-funded cybersecurity companies in nine states and rounded up the cybersecurity startups across all 50 states that have raised more than $100 million in disclosed funding as of Sept. 21.

Thirty-six companies nationwide passed that threshold, and among that elite group are three firms with a DFW presence:

  • StackPath (Dallas), which raised $180 million from investors including ABRY Partners
  • Armor Defense Inc. (Richardson), a managed cloud security company, raised $148 million from investors including Croghan Investments, Doug Ducey, and Patrick Sullivan
  • Alert Logic (has Farmers Branch office and based in Houston), which raised $118 million, from investors including Access Venture Partners, Covera Ventures, and DH Ventures

California-based endpoint protection company Tanium was the top investment raiser with $396 million in total disclosed funding, CB Insights said.
