Sonian Inc., a Dedham company specializing in cloud-powered e-mail archiving, said Monday that has secured an additional $8 million in funding from existing investors OpenView Venture Partners, Summerhill Venture Partners, and Prism Venture Partners.
That amount brings the total raised in the Series C funding round to $21.6 million. To date, Sonian has raised $37.6 million.
These new funds will be used to develop Sonian’s next-generation DiscoverStor platform, the company said.
“Sonian is well poised to continue its remarkable growth trajectory, thanks to our innovative approach and long-standing expertise moving corporate data to a secure cloud archive and illuminating that data with fast and accurate search,” Sonian chief executive Jeff Dickerson said in a statement. “We have a lofty goal to take all human-generated data, from e-mails and documents to CAD drawings and beyond, and make it searchable – and therefore actionable – within a cloud architecture. The continued support from our investment and reseller partners will hasten our ability to deliver on this vision and create the world’s first true dedicated information discovery cloud.”Chris Reidy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
