COPENHAGEN, Denmark, April 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
LogPoint, the next generation security information and event management (SIEM) and big
data analytics platform, today announced it has secured $10 million in Series B funding
from Evolution Equity Partners. The funding will enable LogPoint to enter the next phase
of growth; fueling expansion in new markets and providing for continuous enhancement of
the LogPoint Enterprise SIEM platform.
LogPoint enables enterprises to proactively monitor their networks and rapidly detect
and respond to cybersecurity threats and fulfills compliance and regulatory requirements,
including auditing guidelines, ISO standards, UK GPG13 and the European Union GDPR. An
effective SIEM solution is one of the cornerstones of enterprise security and the next
generation SIEM and big data analytics platform by LogPoint offers unprecedented
performance, scalability and flexibility. LogPoint delivers its product on premise and in
the cloud and is designed for both in-house cybersecurity departments as well as managed
security service providers (MSSP).
According to Gartner Research "worldwide spending on information security is expected
to reach $90 billion in 2017, an increase of 7.6 per cent over 2016, and to top $113
billion by 2020. Spending on enhancing detection and response capabilities is expected to
be a key priority for security buyers through 2020."
"We are humbled by the trust placed in LogPoint by Evolution and extremely excited
over the opportunities opening up for us. Not only in terms of the funding necessary to
realize our growth plans, but also the prospect of partnering with Evolution, that will
provide invaluable help as we pursue our goals", said Jesper Zerlang, CEO of LogPoint.
"We believe the attributes of the LogPoint SIEM-platform are unique and provide the
company with cutting edge advantage in the global marketplace. The flexibility of the
platform, simplicity of the design, the sophistication of the analytics capabilities and
the compelling business and licensing model, provides an attractive value proposition. We
welcome LogPoint to our portfolio of leading cyber security companies" said Richard
Seewald, Founder and Managing Partner at Evolution. Richard Seewald and Karel Obluk,
partner at Evolution, will join the LogPoint Board of Directors.
"The potential for the LogPoint SIEM platform has grown with lightning speed since we
first launched in 2008. Today cybersecurity is among the major threats to enterprises,
organizations and governments - even nations. It's fueled by the growing awareness, the
increasing complexity of cybersecurity challenges and a shortage in cybersecurity
professionals," said LogPoint founder, Soren Laustrup.
LogPoint is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark and introduced its SIEM solution to
the market in 2008 and has since experienced continuous growth. In 2012 Series A funding
was provided by Danish ICT specialist investor DICO, who will remain as an investor.
LogPoint is the only European SIEM vendor and it achieved an EAL 3+ certification in 2015
in partnership with Boeing Defense, Space & Security. This certification facilitates
partnerships with NATO, intelligence agencies, military and police entities and critical
infrastructure in general.
