Wellington Financial LP, a privately-held specialty finance firm, announced a $5 million expansion financing for Agiliance, Inc. The investment will be used to increase product marketing evangelism, leverage target sector distribution and solution coverage and bring to market a new cloud offering. Wellington's funding follows Agiliance's double-digit profitability over the past seven quarters, release of an innovative and high quality RiskVision™ 7, and nearly ten-fold growth in secure cloud services wins over a trailing twelve month period.

Agiliance, the Big Data Risk Company, is the leading independent provider of integrated solutions for Operational and Security Risk programs. The company's flagship software platform, RiskVision, is used by leading global organizations, including Bell Canada, CIT Group, Cisco Systems, Deutsche Bank AG, DNB ASA, E*TRADE, Exelon Corporation, First Energy Corp., Fiserv, McAfee, Proofpoint, Qualcomm Inc., Safeway Inc., Southern Company, State Street Bank, and the U.S. Departments of Energy, Health and Human Services, Justice, and Veterans Affairs.

"Agiliance provides the market's leading solution for unifying Operational Risk Management and Security Risk Management in one extensible platform. Given Agiliance's strong technology, continuing displacement of incumbent vendors, and marquee global client base, we are pleased to add the company to our investment portfolio," said Vik Gupta, Partner of Wellington Financial.

Joe Fantuzzi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Agiliance said, "We are delighted to work with Wellington Financial as Agiliance-favoring market requirements shifted from compliance to risk, from managerial assessments to data-intelligent analytics and from project silos to enterprise scale. Wellington's growth capital will fuel our opportunities to expand global market share of Agiliance patented innovations and operationally efficient solutions."

Agiliance is backed by leading venture capital firms, including Intel Capital, Walden International, Red Rock Ventures, and Castile Ventures.

Wellington Financial LP is a privately-held specialty finance firm providing term, venture and amortizing loans up to $30 million. Wellington Financial LP is currently managing a $600 million investment program with offices in San Francisco, Santa Monica and Toronto. Wellington Financial LP is managed by a partnership controlled by fund management and Clairvest Group Inc.
