June 20 (Reuters) - Cybersecurity software firm Semperis said on Thursday it has raised $125 million in financing from J.P. Morgan and Hercules Capital, which would fund research and development at the company and help expand its global footprint.

The financing comes two years after Semperis raised $200 million in a Series C round led by private equity firm KKR .

The decade-old company provides an identity system defense platform for enterprises and government agencies and also helps organizations safeguard their hybrid Active Directory environment that manages permissions and network access.

Semperis' customers include law firm Ropes & Gray, French drugmaker Sanofi and Chinese personal computers maker Lenovo Group.

The Hoboken, New Jersey-based company is also backed by venture capital firms Insight Partners, Ten Eleven Partners and Paladin. (Reporting by Arasu Kannagi Basil in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
