ECSO Members team up to build up European cybersecurity excellence
ECSO Member Sweepatic secures € 2.8 million follow-up investment
This new investment will be used to boost and strengthen Sweepatic’s European leader role in External Attack Surface Management. In 2021 the company obtained the Cybersecurity Made in Europe label, which recognises European IT security companies for their reliable and trustworthy solutions and underpins Sweepatic’s European identity.
“We are excited to partner with PMV and cybersecurity investors like TIIN Capital and eCAPITAL on this journey. We look forward to benefit from their experience and knowledge in our ambition to grow as an emerging technology vendor. With this new investment, Sweepatic will accelerate its go-to-market, strengthen its product innovation and build strong relationships with customers and partners”, stated Founder & CEO Stijn Vande Casteele.
Roel Reijnen, Investment Manager at Dutch Security Techfund, says: “Cyber threats increasingly disrupt our world. It is therefore important for organisations to understand their own attack surface and be aware of their exposed assets and risks. We are convinced that Sweepatic can help enterprises, governments and service providers solving these challenges and we are enthusiastic to be part of the journey to strengthen their leading role in Europe.”
Roald Borré, Group Manager Venture Capital at PMV says: ”Digital complexity has increased dramatically in many companies in recent years, while cyber protection has not followed suit to the same extent. Hence, we strongly believe in the potential of Sweepatic, the first player with an automated attack surface mapping, monitoring and management solution in Europe. It is precisely this automation and continuous monitoring that differentiates them from the competition and makes Sweepatic a unique player in the market.”
Willi Mannheims, Managing Partner at eCAPITAL adds: “We are thrilled to be supporting Sweepatic as it continues to establish itself as a leader in its field of External Attack Surface Management and a champion for Europe’s expertise in cybersecurity.”
Outside of Europe, at the RSA conference in the US, Sweepatic won two Global Infosec Awards for Most Innovative in Attack Surface Management and Publisher’s Choice in Digital Footprint Security. The company was also recognized by Gartner as an EASM emerging technology vendor.
