In October, Spanish company 4IQ received a $14M round. The company offers state security departments the ability to fuse data and documents from the internet, social media and the hidden web, as well as the ability to investigate subjects and targets, analyse relationships, collaborate on cases and produce intelligence that helps protect people, physical and digital assets, intellectual property and reputation.
The round has been led by international investment and will serve to accelerate 4iQ's product development and global expansion.
In addition to 4IQ other Spanish cybersecurity companies in very different business niches have received support from investors, Buguroo, for example, which has received €3M and has two lines of business: cyberintelligence applied to vulnerabilities and cyberintelligence applied to threats.
In addition to the rounds, we have also detected that foreign investors have been interested in the technology of Spanish companies and have decided to buy them, one example is Agnito, which was bought by Nuance. Agnito develops voice biometrics solutions focused on forensic applications implemented in real police laboratories.
