Guardz raises $18 million

Israeli cybersecurity startup Guardz has raised $18 million in Series A funding led by Glilot+, with participation from Hanaco Ventures, iAngels, and GKFF Ventures, and ClearSky. To date, Guardz has raised to $28 million.

Founded in 2022, the Tel Aviv-based startup targets small businesses with an offering that includes cybersecurity protection and insurance. The Guardz platform monitors a company’s external and internal digital footprint to continuously analyze cybersecurity risks and remediate threats.

“MSPs are at the forefront of protecting small businesses, which underpin the US economy, and we are on a mission to empower them to do so better and more efficiently. We are proud to enable our MSP partners to ensure not only small businesses’ cybersecurity posture, but also the longevity of their businesses. The time is now to double down on our successful go-to-market machine and equip even more MSPs to do so.” – Dor Eisner, CEO and co-founder of Guardz.

“When we met the exceptional team at Guardz, which combines cybersecurity leaders with small business go-to-market experts, it became evident that they had built the ultimate solution for small business cybersecurity – a longstanding and rapidly growing market need we’ve been monitoring at Glilot for a while. Guardz has developed an impressive, holistic, and user-friendly cybersecurity and cyber insurance risk-assessment platform that is cleverly tailored to MSPs, who serve the often-overlooked long-tail small business market. We are excited to lead this funding round and join the Guardz team on their journey to secure the digital world for those who today need it most.” – Lior Litwak, managing partner and head of Glilot+.
