Huntress, an Ellicott City, Maryland-based managed cybersecurity platform for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), raised $40 million in debt financing from CIBC Innovation Banking.
Huntress plans to use the financing for M&A opportunities, research, product development, and expansion into international markets across Canada, the UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
“Huntress is growing faster than ever. In a market surrounded by increasingly expensive capital, CIBC Innovation Banking’s team understood our needs as a high-growth startup. With their help, we’ve already made a strategic acquisition, launched new managed security products, and more. We’re thrilled that CIBC Innovation Banking supports our vision for the future—this investment will help us continue innovating as we further our mission to protect small and midsized businesses.”-Kyle Hanslovan, CEO of Huntress, said.
Huntress recently acquired Curricula, an engaging security awareness training platform that uses story-based learning to communicate cyber risk to employees.
