By Kelsey Kusterer Ziser
The founders of SD-WAN vendor Viptela are launching a new startup called Prosimo, an "Application Experience Infrastructure company," backed by $25 million in venture capital funding.
The series A funding is co-led by General Catalyst and WRVI Capital, in addition to private investors. Dr. Steve Herrod, managing director at General Catalyst, and Lip-Bu Tan, managing partner at WRVI Capital, have also joined Prosimo's board. Prosimo co-founders CEO Ramesh Prabagaran and CTO Nehal Bhau were part of the founding team at Viptela, and later worked on product development and engineering for Viptela after its acquisition by Cisco.
