We are thrilled about the announcement from Splunk. In the press release, Splunk announces their venture arm, namely Splunk Ventures, a $100 million Innovation Fund and a $50 million Social Impact Fund, to invest in promising and innovative start-ups that “can harness the power of data to change the world”. Innovation Fund’s first investment is in Kavach, and we are super excited about that.
Splunk has always been all about data — as is also highlighted by their “datatoeverything” moniker / hashtag all over the media, today. Kavach, on the other hand, helps organizations fight back against emerging cybersecurity threats specifically at the data layer. Clearly there are a lot of synergies and alignment between Kavach and Splunk. As a result this announcement is quite important for us.
This is also a very important milestone for us. We’re honored to add Splunk Ventures, as the newest investor, to our existing list of impressive investors, including Juniper Networks, March Capital and The Fabric, and we hope to grow this relationship with Splunk over time.
We have a lot of important work ahead of us. Looking to some exciting times in the world of application and data security.
