Skout Cybersecurity, a NYC-based cloud-native cybersecurity provider for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), delivered by managed services providers (MSPs), raised $25M in a Series B funding.
The round was led by ClearSky with participation from existing backer RSE Ventures. In conjunction with the financing, ClearSky Managing Director Alex Weiss has joined SKOUT’s board of directors.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate product development, sales, marketing, and recruitment efforts.
Led by Aidan Kehoe, CEO and Co-Founder, Skout collects information on customer devices, software, and infrastructure with sensors that can integrate with nearly any technology stack and work with nearly any device, SaaS, or IaaS. The sensors can also be used for a variety of monitoring purposes such as network, log, and endpoint monitoring, or can be configured and deployed to scan for vulnerabilities and detect intrusions.
The platform monitors and protects organizations with analytics tools, reducing the cost and complexity of network security and making compliance with regulatory requirements simple.
