Boston-based cybersecurity firm SimSpace has successfully closed a $45 million equity raise led by L2 Point Management, which significantly bolsters its military-grade cybersecurity capabilities. This infusion brings SimSpace’s total capital raised in the past year to an impressive $70 million, fueling the company’s expansion into new territories.
In response to an escalating global cyber threat landscape, SimSpace, a leader in military-grade cybersecurity ranges, stands at the forefront of fortifying defenses for Fortune 2000 companies and governmental entities. The investment, led by L2 Point Management, a private investment firm focusing on flexible capital solutions, positions SimSpace to meet the rising demand for robust cybersecurity measures.
SimSpace’s Cyber Force Platform, developed by experts from US Cyber Command and MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory, is a pivotal tool for enterprises, governments, and critical infrastructure organizations. The platform delivers unparalleled training and stress-testing capabilities, enabling organizations to fine-tune their defensive tools and cyber teams.
Expanding Horizons for Cyber Resilience
Amidst a climate where cyber threats transcend geographical borders, SimSpace strategically addresses the pressing need for advanced military-Grade cybersecurity solutions. The company’s CEO, William “Hutch” Hutchison, emphasized the importance of the investment in supporting SimSpace’s global growth trajectory.
“The $45 million investment from L2 Point Management will serve as a milestone of growth at SimSpace, bolstering our ambitions to enter new markets around the world while allowing us to accelerate the pace of our customer acquisition significantly,” said William Hutchison.
The funding will facilitate SimSpace’s expansion into new geographies, allowing the company to offer its military-grade cybersecurity expertise to a broader range of clients. SimSpace’s commitment to responding to unprecedented cyber threats aligns with the projected $9.5 trillion in financial damages organizations worldwide might face in 2024 due to cyber attacks.
“For nearly a decade, SimSpace’s ground-breaking technologies have allowed large financial institutions and critical national infrastructure companies to withstand and recover from the most severe cyber events imaginable. The exponential growth in cyber threats has underlined the necessity for the boards and c-suites of large and listed organizations to implement national-grade cybersecurity to mitigate threats and ensure bottom-line growth,” said William Hutchison.
A Robust Defense Against Evolving Threats
SimSpace’s Cyber Force Platform provides granular, data-driven performance metrics, empowering CFOs to make multi-million dollar decisions for cost reduction without increasing top-line risk. The platform’s metrics-led data is a game-changer for disclosure teams, allowing them to simulate roles in severe incident response. Additionally, security teams can sharpen their capabilities, preparing for the day they must outperform adversaries seeking to inflict critical damage on large and listed companies.
On average, the Cyber Force Platform results in a 30 percent reduction in cyber operational costs and a remarkable 40 percent reduction in breaches, showcasing its efficacy in fortifying organizations against evolving cyber threats.
Global Impact and Recognition
SimSpace’s collaboration with the most advanced Fortune 2000 companies and national and state governments underscores its global impact. In a landscape where regulators and insurers intensify pressure on disclosure and Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) requirements for mission-critical entities, SimSpace’s expertise becomes increasingly vital.
