Illumio, the cloud security and data center provider for enterprises, has raised $100 million funding from series C round led by BlackRock Funds, Accel Partners and others including industry leaders John W. Thompson.

The Series C round brings the security company’s total investment to more than $142 million in the past 27 months. Previously, the company had raised $42.5 million in funding  from Andreessen Horowitz, General Catalyst, Formation 8 and Data Collective as well as individual investors including founder and chief executive officer Marc Benioff and Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang.

The company will use the new funding to meet demand for the Illumio Adaptive Security Platform (ASP), invest in R&D to drive additional platform expansion, grow its sales and marketing efforts, and fuel international expansion as reported by networkworld.

The Adaptive Security Platform acts like a giant brain that watches everything happening in an enterprise’s infrastructure. In effect, it sits on the top of all the computing images and constantly calculates the security policy.
