"We are thrilled to be teaming up with Presidio and Sumitomo. ... This partnership creates additional opportunities to bring PreVeil’s technology to Sumitomo’s customers in Japan and around the world.” - Randy Battat, CEO PreVeil
BOSTON (PRWEB) September 17, 2019
PreVeil, a leader in making encryption useable for everyday business, today announced that Presidio Ventures, the corporate venture capital arm of Sumitomo Corporation, has led the investment in its Series B round. Spark Capital, the lead investor in PreVeil’s Series A round, also participated.
Founded in 2016 by veteran entrepreneurs Sanjeev Verma and Randy Battat and leading security researcher Prof. Raluca Ada Popa, PreVeil’s encrypted email and file sharing are the best way to protect sensitive communications and information from cyberattacks.
“We are thrilled to be teaming up with Presidio and Sumitomo,” said Randy Battat, CEO of PreVeil. “PreVeil has been making great progress helping protect both small and large enterprises in segments including Aerospace & Defense, Financial Services, and others. This partnership creates additional opportunities to bring PreVeil’s technology to Sumitomo’s customers in Japan and around the world.”
“Every day brings news of a new hacking incident, with enterprise email often the vector of choice for attackers,” said Ross Leav, Sr. Director at Presidio. “As enterprises rapidly turn to cloud IT platforms such as Office 365 and G-Suite—especially in APAC--it is more important than ever for enterprises to protect their own critical information with end-to end encryption. Still, many hesitate to adopt encryption platforms due to complex implementations and notoriously poor user experience; PreVeil’s answer is a solution so easy to use, everyone will use it.”
