, a provider of software designed to combat malware and “botnets” in cloud computing environments, has closed on $29 million in venture funding.

The money is the first round Endgame has raised.

Investors include Bessemer Venture Partners, Columbia Capital, Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers and TechOperators.

Internet Security Systems veterans founded Endgame, which is based in Atlanta.

"Tracking botnets across the Internet is an ambitious undertaking," said David Cowan, a partner of Bessemer and the co-founder of VeriSign, in a statement. "Based on their experience leading ISS X-Force, the preeminent security research group in the industry for many years, this is probably the one team in the world that can pull it off.”

Endgame focuses its cybersecurity efforts on the defense and national security industries as well as the private sector.
