CLEVELAND, Ohio, April 7, 2021—AgileBlue has raised capital from a group of experienced private equity and venture capital investors to expand its technology and team. The company is growing its Security Operations Center (SOC) as-a-service and software offering to defend its rapidly increasing client base against advanced security threats.
AgileBlue has added fifteen global channel partners, tripled its install base, and added key executives to its senior leadership team.
AgileBlue continues to gain partnerships across the globe. The company has added key partners in North America, South America, Europe, India, and Australia. As leaders in managed breach detection, AgileBlue offers their partners a white-label SOC platform built on innovative user behavior analytics and machine learning to detect indicators of attack before a breach occurs. Partners are able to offer a critical cyber technology with high margins and recurring revenue.
To facilitate this growth, AgileBlue raised capital from a blue-chip investor group and added to its leadership team. Kevin MacDonald, former founder and CEO of Black Mountain Systems (now Allvue), has joined the board of directors on behalf of the investor group. AgileBlue also welcomes three new members to its executive leadership team, Michael Golz, Gillian Sweny and William Descent. Golz joins AgileBlue as its Global Director of Channel Business from Perch Security. Golz brings with him a vast knowledge of the cybersecurity industry and passion to lead the AgileBlue sales team. Sweny joins the team as Director of Marketing. She brings more than 10 years of experience in the digital marketing space. Descent joins as the Global Director of Sales where he spent the last few years as a sales leader at Perch Security.
