With a new USD410 million investment round, private equity behemoth KKR is increasing its big wager on penetration testing and attack surface management company NetSPI.
Just over a year ago, NetSPI received a USD90 million funding round from KKR with participation from Ten Eleven Ventures. Now, NetSPI has received a USD410 growth equity round. With the additional funding, Minneapolis-based NetSPI has a longer window of opportunity to compete and make money in the quickly expanding attack surface management industry.
Customers who use NetSPI’s cloud-based delivery model can execute attack scenarios based on real-world attacker tactics, either as a single attack technique or as a full attack chain using one pre-built playbook. This allows customers to perform always-on continuous testing to monitor their attack surface.
