On the funding side, SANcastle received a second round of $20 million
last summer. The round was led by Genesis Partners and
the Concord
, previous investors in SANcastle. They were joined in this
funding round by J.P. Morgan &
(Nasdaq: JPM). The company is cautiously looking for a third round,
says Terri Glenn, director of marketing at SANcastle.

in San Jose, although Glenn says this is purely coincidence. “Companies that
usually acquire, aren’t right now," she notes, with a certain gleam in her eye. "It’s not so easy for them to target us
anymore." Gone are the days, apparently, when a
startup dreamed of being acquired by Cisco.
