Beauceron Security, which helps organizations effectively manage cyber risk, announced today it has raised $1.5 million in a second seed round led by the New Brunswick Innovation Foundation that also included Opportunities New Brunswick, Mariner Partners, East Valley Ventures, First Angel Network, CyLon and numerous angel investors.
It's been an exciting few months for the Beauceron team as we hit several key milestones including landing our first national partner and our first European partner as well as significantly expanding our client and user base.
While we'll have even more exciting news to share later this summer, I'm particularly excited to share this latest update.
Founding a technology company, let alone a cybersecurity firm, is not for the faint of heart.
It takes more than just a great idea or great team to build a successful venture.
It takes a supportive community willing to provide a variety of critical assistance – from early stage capital to access to mentors and advisors to programs to accelerator growth. Most importantly, it takes early adopters willing to give a start-up a chance to prove their technology and value.
In an interview with INFOSEC NORTH, David explores why he founded Beauceron Security, the impact of his platform, and how he is truly enabling organizations to treat cyber security and risk as a business issue, not just an IT problem. He provides advice for future entrepreneurs, and highlights how companies need to evolve its hiring and recruiting practices to address the acute talent shortage in the market.
