Oct 19, 2021

Investment represents DENSO's commitment to create safe and seamless mobility solutions News provided by Share this article Share this article SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Oct. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- DENSO , a leading mobility supplier, today announced it invested in Dellfer – an automotive and IoT cybersecurity software company – participating in the company's Series A funding round, which raised a total of $8 million. The investment will help accelerate the development and distribution of Dellfer's best-in-class cybersecurity solutions for the automotive industry. DENSO's investment in Dellfer was made jointly with Option3 , a specialist cybersecurity private equity firm. As part of the investment, both companies will jointly participate on Dellfer's board to provide operational and sales channel support.

This investment reflects our continuing support for their approach and go-to-market strategies."

In addition to informing its partnerships, these principles will help DENSO achieve its Long-term Policy 2030 , which focuses on enriching society by enhancing mobility and achieving sustainability, happiness and peace of mind for everyone. "DENSO was an early investor in Dellfer and continues to be a key ingredient in validating our mission and vision of the company," stated James Blaisdell, co-founder and CEO of Dellfer.
