Fnancial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The transaction is slated to close in Q3 of this year.

“As an independent, private company with an experienced, like-minded investor, we will have the financial backing and flexibility to continue investing in customer and partner success, product innovation and growth in support of our long-term vision and roadmap,” Grolnick continued.

LogRhythm has more than 2,500 enterprise customers.
