Sekoia Secures €35M to Fund Cybersecurity Platform

Paris-based has secured €35 million in a Series A funding round with participation from Banque des Territoires, European investor Bright Pixel (former Sonae IM) and Omnes Capital, Seventure and BNP Paribas Développement.

The cybertech startup intends to use the funds to expand operations and reach. The company develops the XDR (eXtended Detection & Response) platform for real-time detection of cyberattacks.

With an increasingly online world, cybersecurity is crucial to nearly every aspect of our lives. The operational security SaaS platform enables real-time detection and response to cyber threats allowing customers to fully utilise their existing technologies and prioritises interoperability and standards enforcement in its development.

The company’s approach to cybersecurity deviates from the norm, anticipating through attacker knowledge rather than reacting. This anticipation is natively associated with the automation capabilities of detection and response to attacks. The system natively integrates attacker intelligence flows and automation capabilities to identify, understand and neutralise attacks quicker. This innovative approach gives teams time to focus on high value-added tasks.
