Cybersecurity Services Provider BlueteamGlobal Raises $125 Million

Submitted by on August 11, 2017 – 1:09 amNo Comment

Add a firm led by former intelligence agency officials and a Morgan Stanley executive to the growing list of cybersecurity companies attracting investments this summer. BlueteamGlobal, a merger between BitVoyant, K2G, and K2 Cyber Defense, officially launched on Aug. 3 with $125 million in new funding. The company, headed by CEO Jim Rosenthal, former COO at Morgan Stanley, will offer its threat intelligence services to larger organizations and managed security services to small and midsized businesses (SMBs), beginning in North America and Europe before a planned expansion into other territories.

According to Rosenthal, BlueteamGlobal approach is inspired by his time protecting one of the world’s largest financial services institutions. “In my role at Morgan Stanley, I spent considerable time focused on cybersecurity issues, working with Tom – as the security lead on Morgan Stanley’s board – to build out an elite team to protect the firm against advanced attack techniques – in the same way that the national security agencies take on that role for the U.S. government,” Rosenthal said in a statement. “BlueteamGlobal will provide the same kind of expertise and intelligence to companies around the world.”
