Proficio, a Carlsbad-based provider of managed cybersecurity detection and response services, has raised $12 million in an international funding round.

The company said it plans to use the money to expand its presence in the Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe, as well as introduce new cybersecurity platforms and services.

The financing was led by private equity firm Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors LP.

“We are impressed by Proficio’s growth, customer adoption and innovative managed detection and response services,” Nate Locke, a partner at Kayne Anderson, said in a news release. He will join Proficio’s board of directors as part of the firm’s financing decision.

Founded in 2010, Proficio helps organizations defend against advanced cyberthreats, prevent security breaches and ensure regulatory compliance.
