December 2015 by: From The Web

Trustlook Inc., a leading global mobile security provider for the Android platform, today announced that it has closed a $17 million Series A round of funding. Founded in 2013, Trustlook is an innovator in next-generation mobile security solutions. Unlike traditional anti-malware and anti-virus products which address known viruses, Trustlook provides the first APT (advanced persistent threat) mobile security solution.

The financing was led by Trustbridge Partners, a leading venture capital and private equity firm, specializing in growth capital and expansion stage investment. New investors Sparkland Ventures and Linear Capital Partners, as well as existing investor Danhua Capital are also participating in the funding.

“This Series A round of financing allows us to continue our momentum in expanding our unique solutions into even more markets, with greater enterprise, OEM, and consumer coverage,” said Trustlook Founder and Chief Executive Officer Allan Zhang. “Smartphones are the computer of choice for billions of today’s consumers worldwide. This new funding supports Trustlook’s ongoing expansion and continued technological innovation in the fight against cyber theft and malware, and gives our users the mobile security confidence they deserve.”

“Security is becoming increasingly vital for mobile phone users,” said Joan Zhou of Trustbridge Partners. “We are excited to support industry leader Trustlook as they continue to extend their presence in the consumer and enterprise markets, as well as the Internet of Things.”
