Captus Networks snares $16 million

Captus Networks, which makes security devices to protect networks against DoS (denial-of-service) attacks, announced it has received a $16 million investment. The second round of funding will help the company develop new products and focus its sales and marketing. A DoS attack overwhelms a site's servers with a flood of bogus requests, effectively blocking surfers from accessing the site. St. Paul Venture Capital, GMS Capital Partners and Celerity Partners participated in the funding, among others.
