We're excited to introduce our new portfolio company - Piiano, the industry’s first self-hosted PII Vault! Piiano raised a $9M seed round led by YL Ventures with participation from Jibe Ventures and founders of leading cybersecurity companies such as Snyk, Armis, Wiz and Aqua Security. Founded by security experts Gil Dabah and Ariel Shiftan -- whose cybersecurity firm, NorthBit, was acquired by Magic Leap in 2016 to lead its product security -- Piiano’s PII protection and management platform transforms how enterprises build privacy-forward architecture and operationalize privacy practices.
Kudos to our portfolio company Orca Security for raising a $550M extension to the Series C funding round it raised seven months ago! Backed by Temasek, with strategic investments from SAIC and Splunk Ventures, this cloud security powerhouse will use the new funds to expand its global partner program and continuing building rapid customer traction around the world.
Orca Security’s skyrocketing success has cemented its place as a category leader in a multi-billion dollar industry. Orca has transformed cloud security, combining best-in-class technology, high caliber human capital, and a customer-verified solution to a fundamental problem. YL Ventures has supported Orca Security since its seed round and continues to do so as Orca becomes a veritable cybersecurity heavyweight.
Congratulations to Co-Founders Avi Shua, Gil Geron, and the whole Orca team on this incredible milestone!
