Paris, 7 October, 2020 – SEKOIA, a French deeptech company specializing in cyber threat anticipation, has just completed its first round of funding of 10 million euros with Omnes and Alliance Entreprendre. This investment will be mainly devoted to accelerating marketing of its platform for its European public and private companies and to strengthening its R&D teams.
Founded in 2008, SEKOIA has built its reputation on its expertise in responding to security incidents and its ability to assist companies under attack. Since 2016, the company has evolved from consulting firm towards software publishing with the aim of meeting a need that is still little covered by European cybersecurity companies: intelligence threat. This modern defensive approach was cemented with the launch of the SEKOIA.IO platform in January 2020.
SEKOAI has a single company motto: to offer a European alternative to the American SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) products available on the market with sovereign threat anticipation and detection solution.
Freddy Milesi, CEO and co-founder, SEKOIA: “We have raised funds to promote a European and collective approach to threat intelligence. The challenges that are facing companies and all those involved in cyber security in the years to come are colossal. In order to remain in the race against cybercriminals, SEKOIA has chosen to focus on two complementary pillars to enable companies to increase the effectiveness of their protections: anticipation of threats and defence automation”.
