Cybersprint Raises € 2M in Series A Funding to Further Fuel its Rapid Growth
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.”
With the growth of Cybersprint, the company also recently decided to upgrade from HSD Network Partner to HSD Premium Partner. As promising startup Cybersprint pitched at the Access to Capital 2017 event during the Cyber Security Week 2017, organised by HSD Office with many partners where also one of these new investors attended the event.
