Khosla Ventures  and Fairhaven Capital are investing $15 million in a recently launched  cybersecurity startup. Cylance , headed by former McAfee  CTO Stuart McClure, went public today after a period in stealth mode and specializes in security products for large financial, banking, telecommunication, health care, and energy firms. The launch was announced  this morning. Board members include former Kaiser Permanente  CSO Patrick Heim, former PGP  CEO Alex Doll, and Retired Admiral William J. Fallon. Last month, Reuters reported  that the company has been aggressively hiring specialists in cyberattacks on public utilities inside the United States.
“As a serial entrepreneur, Vinod Khosla understands what it takes to succeed, and as a long time investor in security startups, Fairhaven has become a well-respected security investor. We could not have asked for a stronger team from which to springboard our mission to solving the most intricate security issues,” McClure said on the company's website.
