Starting with 3479 companies in the software, wireless, Internet, hardware and media industries, Lead411 eliminated all but 71, which didn’t meet its criteria of being privately held and either doubling revenue over the past two years or receiving funding of more than $5 million over that period. In March 2014 ThreatMetrix secured $20 million in Series E funding led by Adams Street Partners.
