We are excited to announce a significant moment in our journey at Guardz – securing $18M in Series A round funding ten months after launching from stealth. With a resilient, purpose-driven team and a clear goal, we’ve been working tirelessly to transform the ever-critical cybersecurity landscape for MSPs and their small business clients.
The Rising Challenge
As the world continues to move towards digital, cybersecurity stands as a concern, especially for small businesses. Despite making up the backbone of the global economy, small businesses are often left most vulnerable. Operational boundaries and budget constraints limit their access to advanced resources, making them preferred targets for potential cybersecurity threats that are growing by the day.
CEO Dor Eisner and CTO Alon Lavi founded Guardz in 2022 with the vision to tackle the challenge and created Guardz to empower MSPs to proactively secure and insure small businesses with a robust and unified cybersecurity platform that protects against ever-evolving cyber threats. In less than a year, Guardz has seen substantial growth by partnering with hundreds of MSPs and ensuring the security of thousands of businesses in the US and Europe.
The newly raised funds will be allocated to fuel the company’s overall growth. This includes accelerating product development to deliver more hyper-automated detection and response across all attack vectors in a holistic, cost-effective way. Additionally, we plan to expand our sales, marketing, and customer success operations globally.
Every ambitious journey thrives on a robust support system, and the growth story of Guardz resonates with this fact. Our dedicated team, supportive MSP partners, and passionate investors, including the early growth fund of Glilot Capital Partners, Glilot+, Hanaco, iAngels, GKFF, and ClearSky, are the pillars of our strength. Their unwavering belief in our vision has been a constant, encouraging force. Together, we are committed to forging a safer digital world for small businesses.
It’s our mission to change the cybersecurity landscape for MSPs, and we’re extremely excited to have the opportunity to continue to scale what we’re building to protect as many small businesses as possible with our growing MSP community.
Keep your eyes peeled, and stay tuned for what’s to come!
