Blue Cloud Ventures Announces Successful Exit From Its Investment in BeyondTrust

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 9, 2014) - Blue Cloud Ventures (BCV), a growth and late-stage co-investment firm that focuses on cloud-based enterprise software companies, announced today that it has exited its investment in BeyondTrust, the leading provider of identity management software solutions.

BeyondTrust became one of BCV's 10 portfolio company investments in 2012. In September 2014, private equity firm Veritas Capital acquired BeyondTrust for $310 million.

"BeyondTrust is a great example of the types of successful, innovative and disruptive companies Blue Cloud Ventures aims to work with," said Rami Rahal, Co-Founder and General Partner of BCV. "We are glad that BeyondTrust found the right financial and strategic partner to team up with and continue on its innovation and growth trajectory as a leading cybersecurity software platform."

This is the second exit for BCV this year. In February, BCV exited its investment in AFS Technologies, a developer of subscription-based software applications for the food & beverage and consumer product goods industries, with the sale to Court Square Capital.

Current companies in BCV's portfolio include: Aras, BTI Systems, Cloudbees, Reflexis, The Resumator, Reval, Shift, and Vidyo.
