Sentry raised $90 million for its Series E, bringing the company’s total funding to $217 million and valuing the company at more than $3 billion.

This round was co-led by BOND and Accel, with participation from existing investor New Enterprise Associates (NEA) and new investor K5 Global.

The new capital will help fuel the company’s long-term growth for product development, hiring, and global expansion in Europe.

“Our singular focus on developers, combined with the depth of our platform across 100+ languages, allows us to uniquely solve developer problems for every customer and software environment,” said Milin Desai, CEO at Sentry. “Revenue has more than tripled in just over two years, and our team will continue to be laser-focused on providing engineering organizations with the ability to ship better code faster.”

“The rate at which businesses are moving towards a digital-first mindset is unprecedented,” said Jay Simons, General Partner at BOND. “In order to sustain applications, programs, and mobile, the proper infrastructure needs to be in place to manage and monitor the health of every customer solution. For many businesses, an error in code or a performance issue in the final touchpoint with an end-user can mean the loss of a sale or customer.”

“The rate of software development is going to exponentially increase, and developers are seeking ways to quickly solve any issues that will affect the end-user experience,” said Dan Levine, Partner at Accel, a firm that has also invested in companies like Atlassian, CrowdStrike, Dropbox, PagerDuty, Qualtrics, and Slack. “With Sentry, companies can not only pinpoint the exact issue but also proactively monitor their application health. As we continue to see the move towards a digital-first world, Sentry is well-positioned to help companies, from small businesses to enterprises, ensure that they’re keeping up with customer expectations.”

With this round of funding, Sentry will accelerate its go-to-market motion and teams, as the company expands on its product-led growth model and servicing its global customer base.
