As we prepare to move across the muddy Charles River from Cambridge to our new offices in Boston’s Innovation District, I find myself reflecting on our incredible progress in 2014. From RSA in February to AWS re:Invent in November, it has truly been a whirlwind highlighted by the awesome people that make up Threat Stack including our team, investors, partners, and most importantly, our customers. Thanks to all! So, what did we get done in 2014?
We’re thrilled to announce today that we have raised an additional $5M in funding from Atlas Venture and .406 Ventures. The funding will be used to further develop and commercialize our cloud security monitoring service, which officially launched last month, and expand our footprint with customers using Amazon Web Services.
This announcement comes right on the heels of our highly successful and over subscribed beta program and officially launching on-stage in November at Amazon CTO Dr. Werner Vogel’s Start-up Launch keynote during the AWS re:Invent Conference.
Today we’re extremely excited to announce the general availability of Threat Stack!
Right on the heels of our successful beta program with hundreds of active users, and a very busy summer that included shipping many new features, hiring key members of our executive team, and participating in several major AWS events, we have officially launched our service at the AWS re:Invent Conference. We are thrilled and honored that Threat Stack, among just a handful of other companies, was selected by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to join Amazon’s CTO, Dr. Werner Vogels, on stage during his Start-up Launch Keynote to introduce our services to the entire AWS community.
This summer, despite the absolutely perfect weather here in Boston, we’ve spared no time and hunkered down to keep building and shipping new features, focusing in on top AWS community events, hiring several truly awesome people, and much more.
As the summer comes to a close, we’d like to give you a quick update on what we’ve been up to here at Threat Stack.

The only thing hotter than the streets of Manhattan last week was the New York AWS Summit! The event was packed with AWS users and those exploring moving into the cloud. In fact, there were so many users there that they ran out of badges!
Wow — what a busy (and awesome) time at RSA this year! I missed the conference last year and was surprised (but impressed) to see the event grow as much as it has in such a short period of time; they literally doubled the exhibitor space, filling both the North and South Halls. While on one hand surprising, the growth makes complete sense — not just because security is a hot space, but because of the massive increase in the attack surface area.
