National Grid Partners backs cybersecurity company RiskIQ’s Series D round

From: RegTech Analyst

Attack surface management company RiskIQ has raised $15m in a Series D round to spread the usage of its solutions.

RiskIQ will use the money to bring its attack surface management, threat detection, and unique threat hunting capabilities to critical infrastructure industries, which face a host of unique security challenges entering the new decade.

National Grid Partners (NGP), the venture and innovation arm of British multinational utility company National Grid, was behind the investment.

“We view NGP’s show of support as an incredible opportunity to help customers in new markets thrive as their attack surfaces expand outside the firewall, especially now amid the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Lou Manousos, CEO of RiskIQ.

“Like us, NGP recognises that operational technology around attack surface management is no longer just nice to have, and is a must for all businesses. We look forward to this collaboration bringing RiskIQ technology, as well as a platform for information sharing and community defence, to this sector.”
