, which was formerly known as Reflex Security, has closed on $8.5 million in Series A venture financing.

The funding is the final step in the reorganization of the firm, according to Reflext. It now focuses on virtualization management and security.

RFA Management Company, an investment firm based in Atlanta, led the financing.

As Reflex Security, the company raised some $18 million in venture backing, according to PE Hub.

“This funding is testament to the innovation that our management and security solutions are delivering to the rapidly growing virtualization market,” said Pete Privateer, chief executive officer of Reflex. “Organizations are investing in virtual infrastructure to streamline costs and operations during these extraordinary economic times. Likewise, the demand for tools to automate the management and security of virtual datacenters is a rapidly emerging market creating significant growth opportunities for Reflex.”

The lead product for the company, Reflex VMC (Virtualization Management Center), has won several awards, including overall best of show at VMworld in 2008.
