AgileBlue has just raised $2.25 million in a Preferred Round from a group of seasoned technology and private equity investors. The company is a rapidly expanding Cyber Security Operations Center (SOC)-as-a-Service and XDR Platform focused on identifying cyber-attack signs before a breach happens.
As a supplier of managed breach detection, AgileBlue provides its direct clients, MSPs, and MSSP partners with a SOC platform built on unique user behavior analytics and machine learning to detect symptoms of cyberattacks before a breach happens. MSP partners may provide vital cybersecurity technologies while earning significant margins and recurring income, according to AgileBlue. The company has gained more than 50 channel partners internationally in the last year.
“We are working tremendously hard to create an innovative company focused on helping our clients defend their businesses against ransomware, phishing, and every emerging threat hitting businesses all over the world,” said Tony Pietrocola, Co-Founder, and President of AgileBlue. “Our goal is to obsess over our customers, helping them navigate the complexity of 24×7 monitoring, detection and response across on-prem, cloud and remote-working environments so they can rest easy.”
Kevin MacDonald, the founder and former CTO and Co-CEO of BlackMountain Systems, leads the investment group. Mr. MacDonald serves as an Independent Director for Atlas Innovate and numerous former partners of The Blackstone Group, Black Mountain Systems, The Carlyle Group, and Tetragon Financial Group.
“AgileBlue’s innovative SOC-as-a-Service and XDR platform automates 24×7 managed detection and response in a world that sees ransomware and data breaches on a daily basis,” said Kevin MacDonald. “We are thrilled to invest in AgileBlue as they innovate MDR, SOC and XDR for small and mid-size businesses globally.”
