A D.C.–area venture capital firm closed a $25 million fund to back cybersecurity startups, according to a report in VentureBeat.

Lavrock Ventures, which is based in McLean, Va., first appeared on local radars in 2016. The firm is led by managing partner Jim Hunt, and general partners Daniel Hanks and Steve Smoot.
