“Our investors recognize Fidelis’ strong value proposition and ability to execute in a dynamic marketplace,” said Nick Lantuh, President and CEO of Fidelis Cybersecurity. “We are making significant investments in innovation to accelerate how security operations and incident response teams react to, manage and hunt for threats. We are doing this by building on our market-leading network traffic analysis solution which provides organizations with full visibility across their attack surface. By combining our patented technology, unmatched expertise and curated intel from our threat research team, we provide customers with deep visibility across increasingly complex environments, more accurate detections and the capability to respond faster and more effectively to threats and data loss.”
Fidelis customers include 15 Fortune 500 companies, 20 Forbes Global 2000 firms and nearly a dozen government agencies in the United States and elsewhere. Its website lists Barclays, the US Department of Energy, Emirates, the International Monetary Fund, NATO, Samsung Research America, and the U.S Air Force among its customers.
