We’ve very excited to welcome Norwest Venture Partners to the Agari family!
Norwest, the newest investor in Agari, led the Series D funding for $22M we announced earlier this week. Their interest in the Agari Email Trust Platform and its unique ability to stop targeted phishing attacked shouldn’t come as a surprise. They have a long history of investing in the cybersecurity space. Their portfolio includes security leaders including FireEye, Bitglass and more.
According to Rama Sekhar, partner at Norwest, “In order to develop our cyber security investment thesis, we regularly interview CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers) to understand their top security concerns. We consistently heard from these customers that major breaches were being attributed to targeted phishing attacks. When we searched for an investment opportunity in today’s crowded security market that had a proven technology to meet this challenge, along with a track record of reliability, continued innovation, and high customer satisfaction, Agari stood alone.”
