Funding for Elba raises €2.5 million

Funding means it can solidify its position as a key player in the market

Paris-based cybersecurity startup, Elba, has successfully raised €2.5 million in its first funding round, signaling a strong vote of confidence in its innovative platform designed to bolster teams' cybersecurity efforts. The funding round was led by XAnge, a renowned venture capital firm, and saw participation from Kima Venture, Plug and Play US, Uncorrelated, Angel Invest, as well as industry experts including Jason Chan, former CISO of Netflix, Jean-Baptiste Aviat, CTO of Sqreen, and Eric Fourrier, CTO of GitGuardian.

The influx of funds will play a pivotal role in fueling Elba's ambitions for international expansion, while also driving research and development initiatives. Elba's overarching vision is to provide a comprehensive cybersecurity solution that seamlessly integrates with the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) ecosystem of its clients. By doing so, the platform empowers teams to identify and address security issues promptly, all with the simple click of a button.

In the words of Elba's co-founder and CEO, Théo Rouer, "The explosion of SaaS security risks has left IT teams in a tricky situation. Identifying employees' security issues manually is tedious work, and even traditional solutions like SIEMs or CASBs that automate issue detection are not effective as IT teams still need to solicit more context from employees to investigate issues. That's why we created Elba."

Impressively, despite launching just six months ago, Elba has already garnered the trust and support of over 100 customers. Notable names on their client roster include Zenchef, Deepki, Resilience, and Equativ. This early success attests to the efficacy and relevance of Elba's platform, as well as its potential to address the pressing cybersecurity challenges faced by businesses today.

Elba's fresh approach to cybersecurity, coupled with its successful funding round and rapid customer acquisition, positions the startup as an emerging leader in the industry. With the newfound resources, Elba is well-equipped to expand its reach globally and fortify its technological advancements.
