Empresas europeas en el ámbito de la ciberseguridad,  como Darktrace  y Silentcircle han conseguido rondas superiores a $50M en este año 2016. Entre los inversores encontramos grandes internacionales como KKR, pero también inversores europeos como Santander.

Darktrace consigue $64M

Darktrace es una empresa británica fundada en el 2013, que no ha parado de crecer desde que se fundó. Ya ha realizado tres rondas de inversión y ha conseguido un total de $104.5M, lo que sitúa su valoración en $400M.

¿Cuál es el secreto de su éxito, que en el 2016 le llevó a aumentar su facturación en un 600%?

Su diferenciación es que en lugar de tratar lo inevitable, buscan reducir al mínimo los daños causados por los ataques de seguridad y mantener una vigilancia constante que se adapta a la evolución de los mismos. Para ello cuenta con un ‘Enterprise Immune System’, un sistema que se dedica a monitorizar toda la red de una compañía y que dispone de un software especial que es capaz de detectar comportamientos sospechosos, de forma que toma el control rápidamente para minimizar la situación, reduciendo por ejemplo la velocidad de la red hasta reconocer qué está pasando, o bloqueando accesos.

Entre sus inversores encontramos a grandes internacionales  como KKR ,Summit Partners, TenEleven Ventures y SoftBank.

Silent Circle recibe $50M en una ronda liderada por el  Santander

Silent Circle, es  un grupo pionero en el campo de la seguridad de las comunicaciones móviles con sede en Ginebra.

 Esta empresa ha sabido evolucionar de acuerdo a las exigencias del mercado, fundada en 2011 lanzó una aplicación para el cifrado de las comunicaciones móviles en 2012 y un dispositivo de alta seguridad conocido como el blackphone en 2013. Cuando grandes empresas de tecnología orientadas al consumidor como Apple Inc y Facebook Inc extendieron aplicaciones gratuitas y fáciles de usar para el cifrado de las comunicaciones móviles, Silent Circle tuvo que modificar su modelo de negocio. Ahora  se centra en el desarrollo de productos de software que las empresas pueden utilizar para asegurar y administrar las comunicaciones móviles de los empleados.

Technology Data Analytics
for M&A
"Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
Training Methodology
We have developed training programs in an innovative set-up which guarantees our teams the acquisition of technical competences both in the field of corporate finance and in the field of psychology, that is much needed when it comes to negotiation processes.

Hence, we extend best practices identified internally in an efficient and rapid manner among our members.
