Executive opinion

CEO at Aviatrix, Steve Mullaney, said, "Business and application owners demand networking and security teams provide the same level of resiliency, performance, functionality, and security in the cloud as they get on-premises. The basic constructs of AWS and the other public clouds do not give enterprises the toolset required to accomplish this, and it is causing a great deal of pain for IT moving to the cloud. Aviatrix gives enterprise IT architecture to provide a common set of networking, security, and operational services across one or more public clouds. We see unprecedented demand from some of the largest organizations, and this latest funding will enable us to extend our demonstrable market leadership even more quickly."

A general partner at CRV and Aviatrix board member, Devdutt Yellurkar, said, "CRV invests in people who pair market insights with proven abilities to execute. Steve Mullaney has assembled the best go-to-market talent in the industry—fueling impressive momentum in enterprise adoption and partnerships that are driving substantial revenue growth. It’s rare for CRV to lead a Series C round, but we did so here based on the enormous opportunity. We’re incredibly excited to be a part of Aviatrix’s trailblazing journey."
