Bromium isn't just delivering on its technology promise, it's also continuing to attract the attention of investors. On March 24, Bromium announced a new $40 million round of funding, bringing total funding to date for the company up to $115 million. Bromium's investors include Silver Lake Waterman, Andreessen Horowitz, Ignition Partners, Highland Capital Partners, Intel Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners and Meritech Capital Partners. In a video interview with eWEEK, Crosby details how his company's technology platforms continues to evolve to help solve the challenge of Byzantine fault tolerance.
