In conjunction with the round, CybelAngel also announced that Pieter Welten, Partner at Prime Ventures, has joined the company’s Board of Directors. “CybelAngel’s technology is a must-have in every CIO’s cybersecurity posture. Their solution has already been successful at saving customers billions of dollars’ worth of potential damage from data leaks. We see an expansive global opportunity in CybelAngel, and we are excited to help them grow,” said Welten.
Enterprise data is now shared on more third-party platforms than ever before. In the data centers, on the cloud, on connected or IoT devices, and among external contractors and vendors, the threat of critical data leaks beyond a company’s firewall grows every day.The World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2019 ranks data theft and cyberattacks among its top five global risks, with an estimated price tag of $90 trillion if cybersecurity efforts do not keep pace with technological change. The detection of unprotected, at-risk data is now an essential part of standard cyber- resilience due diligence frameworks.
Damien Henault, partner at TempoCap says: “CybelAngel’s platform, based on a unique combination of AI and human expertise, represents a real paradigm shift in the industry and we’re proud to invest in a cybersecurity firm that is truly disruptive and innovating at scale. We look forward to supporting their success over the coming years”.
