UK cybersecurity startup Red Sift today announces that it is launching two new points of operations across the US: San Francisco, California and Austin, Texas. The expansion will be led by newly appointed SVP of Strategy, Chuck Swenberg, a security veteran with expertise in threat intelligence and email security.
Founded in 2015 by Rahul Powar and Randal Pinto, Red Sift is a data-driven cybersecurity business that uses machine learning to analyze and synthesize data from core business processes, such as email, to help its global customer base better manage its online security. Red Sift offers intelligent and accessible SaaS solutions that combine modern security standards with the latest machine learning techniques to make it easier for organizations to reduce the threats their users face every day. The startup is headquartered in London, UK, and boasts major clients including TransferWise, Telefonica, Action for Children, and top UK law firms.
The international expansion announcement comes hot on the heels of the company’s membership in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) and it’s recent Series A funding of €8 million, partly supported by In-Q-Tel, Inc., the non-profit strategic investor to U.S. intelligence and defense agencies.
Furthermore, Red Sift has just been invited by the US Department of Homeland Security to become an approved supplier to the US Government and its suppliers via the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program.
“Red Sift has a compelling vision to apply its next-generation cloud security platform to address email security as email continues to evolve as one of the largest and most vulnerable attack vectors. The ability to integrate applications on a scalable, computational platform while applying AI technologies elevates Red Sift to a small group of industry players truly disrupting the infosec space,” said Chuck Swenberg, SVP Strategy, Red Sift.
Randal Pinto, COO and co-founder, Red Sift added, “Our physical expansion into the US marks a milestone moment for Red Sift and comes in response to increased demand for our technology in the region. As we kick off 2020, we will continue to grow our presence in both San Francisco and Austin, with Chuck leading the way. Additionally, our US operations will be bolstered by engineering capabilities coming out of our new, DevOps-focused Barcelona office.”
