LookingGlass Completes Series B Financing; Acquires CloudShield

Palo Alto – March 30, 2014 – Cooley advised LookingGlass Cyber Solutions Inc., a leading provider of threat intelligence, on two recent transactions.

The $20 million Series B funding round led by Neuberger Berman Private Equity Funds with participation by Alsop Louie Capital was announced on March 24, 2015.
