    Behaviosec

    BehavioSec transforms behaviour into a transparent additional layer of security by monitoring, in real-time, the way users interact with their devices. BehavioSec’s technology recognises if a conflicting user is operating a device by monitoring the environment, rhythms, and interaction patterns that are unique to each user. The solution is designed to enhance security without impacting the user experience. With offices in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden, BehavioSec is currently deployed across Northern Europe retail banks protecting over 1,5 billion transactions per year.

    In January 2018, BehavioSec raised $17.5M in a Series B funding in an investment round led by Trident Capital Cybersecurity, whose Managing Directors, J. Alberto Yépez and Ken Gonzalez, will join BehavioSec’s board of directors. The round also saw contributions from ABN AMRO and Cisco Investments, in addition to returning investors Conor Venture Partners and Octopus Ventures. Behaviosec will use the investment to expand global operations and relocate corporate HQ to the US.

    Digital Shadows

    Digital Shadows has come a long way since Accenture Innovation Lab London in 2011, announcing a $26M Series C funding round in September 2017. Its flagship product, SearchLight, is a continuous real-time scan of more than 100 million data sources online and on the deep and dark web — cross referencing customer specific data with the monitored sources to flag up instances where data might have inadvertently been posted online, for instance, or where a data breach or other unwanted disclosure might be occurring. The service also monitors any threat-related chatter about the company, such as potential hackers discussing specific attack vectors.

    In May 2018, Digital Shadows announced its new "Shadow Search" capability, available as part of its flagship, award-winning SearchLight service.Shadow Search enables instant access to Digital Shadows' comprehensive collection of historical and evolving threat intelligence assets, and expert security sources, including leading security blogs and news, enabling SearchLight subscribers the ability to better manage third-party risk, investigate security incidents, monitor trends, and enrich threat hunting of client-specific indicators and threat actors jeopardising their business, brand and reputation.

In Germany, the online bank has around 100,000 clients and more than 300,000 community members who actively participate in the bank’s decision-making processes – a strategy that underpins Fidor’s innovative platform. In September 2015, Celent’s “Model Bank of the Year” launched in the UK. It also announced a current account that is free to open and run and made a contactless debit card available for the first time in 2016. Fidor's online platform includes virtual currencies trading, social media banking, Facebook and Twitter payments. Available initially in Germany, Fidor has expanded into the US, UK and Russia. 2014 also saw the company integrate with the Ripple payment network (Ripple is the open-source payments protocol for free and instant exchange of any form of money or value).
