Sekoia.io has received a minority equity investment from Bright Pixel Capital, Banque des Territories, BNP Paribas, Omnes Capital and Seventure Partners
Sekoia.io is a cybersecurity Software as a Service player offering one of the most advanced open extended detection and response (XDR) platforms on the European market, natively integrated with proprietary threat intelligence. Combining XDR, cyber threat intelligence and threat intelligence platform solutions, the platform stands out for its approach that favors interoperability through the integration of all its customers’ cyber solutions to provide a single control tower.
Sekoia was formed in 2008 as a cybersecurity consulting service. After five years of research and development, Sekoia’s team of industry experts launched Sekoia.io, and the company also raised €10 million the same year through a seed round. In 2022, the organization split its activities, rebranding the consulting services business, Sekoia, to Own Security and keeping the Sekoia.io name for the XDR platform.
Sekoia.io’s technology has proven its worth to the security teams of major CAC40 companies, large European and French administrations as well as major players in managed security services over the last three years. The company sought new partners along with historical investors to accelerate growth and continue the development of its unique technology. Lincoln International worked closely with Sekoia.io management throughout the process, leveraging deep expertise in the cybersecurity sector and relationships with potential investors to drive a successful outcome for all stakeholders despite the venture capital market slowdown.
Boris Martin, Director in Lincoln’s Technology, Media & Telecom Group, commented, “Sekoia.io is a truly differentiated company with an unmatched product in the European XDR space, we truly enjoyed working with the great management team, led by a passionate, visionary Chief Executive Officer. This transaction also further evidences Lincoln’s unique expertise in the cybersecurity sector.”
