Cybersecurity company Carbon Black files for IPO
Carbon Black, a Boston-area maker of antivirus software and other endpoint security solutions, has filed for an IPO. The official offering amount is $100 million, but that's likely a placeholder.
Why it matters: Because it's finally happening. Carbon Black (originally known as Bit9, prior to a 2014 merger) did a confidential IPO filing more than 18 months ago.
