Speaking about the development, Saket Modi, CEO and Co-founder at Safe Security, said,
“We are seeing companies across all industries requiring a new approach to quantifying cyber risk in a way that can be communicated across internal stakeholders, boards, government regulations, cyber insurance underwriters, and across the third-party vendor ecosystem. As we enter this next milestone in the company’s journey, we are focusing on continuing to innovate ahead of the market and lead the charge with the industry’s only real-time, data-driven platform for managing and mitigating cyber risk.”
The cyber security firm helps enterprises, boards, regulators and cyber insurance carriers to understand potential cyber risks in real time. Safe Security helps its clients gain visibility across their entire attack surface, technology, people, and third parties.
Sorenson Capital’s partner, Burke Davis, justified the firm’s investment in the cyber security firm by highlighting the crucial juncture at which cyber risk management finds itself. Davis explained that there is a significant potential market for a risk management horizontal layer that spans the entire cyber stack.
