Former McAfee Executives Launch Stealthy Startup, CrowdStrike
Former CTO of McAfee, George Kurtz, has launched a new security technology company called CrowdStrike. The company is still in stealth mode, but as reported earlier today on TechCrunch the company has revealed a $26 million Series A investment from Warburg Pincus (Kurtz was previously an EIR at the private equity firm).
The new company announced the formation of the company on George Kurtz blog, www.georgekurtz.com.
Kurtz, has been working with Warburg on the project since November, when the private equity firm brought him on as a “executive in residence.” Warburg’s executive in residence program is a CEO-in-waiting position in which the private equity firm helps entrepreneurs incubate ideas into companies in which it will eventually invest.
