27 Nov Cybersprint raises €2M growth capital from Vortex, IQ and KPN Ventures
The Hague, 27 November 2018 – Dutch cyber security company Cybersprint has raised € 2M in a Series A Funding round. The financing is provided by lead-investor Vortex Capital Partners, returning investor InnovationQuarter, and KPN Ventures. Cybersprint will invest the funds to keep developing its product portfolio and team, and continue its expansion throughout Europe.
Cybersprint is growing rapidly and has gained a leading position in Digital Risk Protection in the Benelux market over the past two years.
Pieter Jansen, CEO and founder of Cybersprint: “With this investment, we can fuel our rapid growth and further expand our team and business into the European market. Companies and governmental organisations are increasingly aware of the digital risks and challenges they face. Our unique Digital Risk Protection platform helps organisations map all digital risks. By giving our clients control over their entire online footprint, they can better protect their business, brand and reputation. I am excited about the next steps we can take with the support of our current and new investors.”
Evert Jan de Groot, partner at Vortex Capital Partners, adds: “The CEO-fraud we have recently seen at Pathé Cinemas is just the tip of the cybercrime iceberg. Cybersprint has deep domain expertise in detecting digital vulnerabilities and is managed by an experienced team. Their platform can, for instance, immediately detect fraudulent domains the moment they are registered, allowing organisations that could be at risk to intervene before the damage is done.”
“Cybersprint’s Digital Risk Protection solution provides organizations with valuable insights to protect their online presence and avoid misuse of its brands, domains and accounts. This is becoming increasingly relevant, and we see many opportunities to work together to support their growth” says Herman Kienhuis, managing director at KPN Ventures.
Cybersprint protects organisations from cyber threats by providing continuous, real-time insights into the entire digital attack surface and current online risks. The unique Digital Risk Protection platform works as an automated ethical hacker, continuously in search of online vulnerabilities on web, social media, mobile apps, netblocks, IoT devices and the dark web. Simply by entering the brand or organisation name, the platform automatically reveals all online entry points related to the organisation. For more information, see www.cybersprint.com.
