Unravel Data raised $35 million in an oversubscribed Series C funding round.

Point72 Ventures, founded by renowned hedge fund investor Steve Cohen, led the round with participation from Harmony Partners, and existing Unravel investors Menlo Ventures, GGV Capital and M12 (formerly Microsoft Ventures).

“Most industry-leading companies are now software businesses, and a majority of those businesses are running on top of mission-critical big data applications,” said David Dubick, Partner, Point72 Ventures. “These big data tailwinds have created a demand for tools to monitor, optimize and secure these systems, and Unravel is uniquely positioned to address this need in the marketplace.”

“CIOs in our network told us story after story of traditional application monitoring tools failing in a big data context because those tools were designed for the world of the past. And we didn’t just hear this problem from third parties, we were seeing it at Point72 as well,” said Matthew Granade, Chief Market Intelligence Officer at Point72 and Managing Partner of Point72 Ventures. “This new architecture requires a different product, one built from the ground up to focus on the unique challenges posed by big data applications. Unravel is poised to capture this emerging big-data APM market.”
