Indian security firm gets hefty cash injection.
Indian computer security firm Quick Heal has received a INR 60 crore (approximately US$12.7 million) cash injection from venture capital firm Sequoia Capital.
Quick Heal, whose range of anti-malware products have been appearing in VB's VB100 reviews with a very decent track record since 2002, was set up by brothers Kailash and Sanjay Katkar in the early 1990s.
The brothers have worked hard over the last 17 years to transform the business from what started out as a two-man-band operating from a small, single-desk office into what is now the fastest growing software company in the computer security space in India - with a compound annual growth rate of almost 100% for the last three years. The company currently has a 30% share of the consumer AV market in India and employs more than 350 people in 18 branch offices.
The investment will help Quick Heal grow its product portfolio and extend its reach overseas.
