Bolster, a Los Altos, CA-based automated digital risk protection company, announced that it raised $15 million in funding.
The round was led by Cervin, Liberty Global Ventures, and Cheyenne Ventures, with participation from Thomvest Ventures and Crosslink Capital.
The funding will fuel additional company growth to help customers worldwide to detect and remediate threats across the web, social media, and app stores at a fraction of the time and operational cost of alternative solutions.
"As the digital ecosystem expands at an accelerated rate, the modern company's public attack surface is more vulnerable than ever. The same touch points used to connect with customers are being exploited by attackers to phish employees, steal private data, and destroy customer trust," said Abhishek Dubey, co-founder, and CEO of Bolster, Inc. "The big problem that keeps companies from being able to protect their brand, customers, and employees is scaling detection and remediation across the massive volume of data on the web. It's critical that companies adopt automation to detect and take down fraudulent sites and content so they can scale to fight this problem."
Shirish Sathaye, General Partner at Cervin, and Manoj Apte, security industry veteran and former Chief Strategy Officer of Zscaler, joined the company's board of directors.
