Spintop invests in proactive personal data protection platform Defentry

Oct 9, 2020

Digital identity theft and fraudulent use of personal data is a massive and rapidly growing problem, threatening many of the positive benefits of digitalization. Defentry provides a unique, complete and closed personal data protection loop. The platform processes massive amounts of information from many different sources, detects personal data at risk, proactively alerts the user, assists the end user to restore and protect the personal data at risk and then sends a confirmation when all personal data is adequately protected. The company has grown rapidly with distribution partners over the last 12 months. Scaling will now continue with the proven distribution model. The cyber security company that protects personal data on the internet has closed a financing round to start expansion into Europe. The financing round was led by Spintop Ventures. Founders and existing shareholders also participated. Defentry has had strong growth over the past year providing its proactive personal data protection platform to distribution partners, software companies and large corporations. These customers and partners have successfully launched their services in Sweden and Finland with rapidly growing user bases. Defentry will continue to expand throughout the Nordic region and into selected EU markets using the proven distribution model. The capital from the financing will be used to grow the team and establish the proactive personal data protection platform in new countries. The Defentry platform detects stolen personal data and personal data at risk, alerts the end user before fraud occurs, assists the end user to restore and protect personal data, confirms the data is again secure and along the way trains the end user in the protection of personal data. “People need protection online and they know it. People are willing to take responsibility for the fight against cybercrime and they want the organizations and companies they trust to support them. There is a clear gap in the market for a company like Defentry that can provide a better protection of personal identities and other personal data, and a more secure digital experience. Personal data protection will become a standard product, just like anti-virus, which 9 out of 10 persons will have in the future” – says Christer Hernestig, Founder and CEO The ambition is to become a leading platform for personal data protection in Europe. The core of the SaaS platform is an ecosystem of multiple data sources that are aggregated and processed in Defentry’s AI-powered analytics engine to proactively identify data at risk. The outcome of the analysis is immediately and automatically translated into warnings to end-users together with proposed actions and step-by-step guidance to execute the actions proposed in real-time. “Digital identity theft and other fraudulent use of personal data is a massive and rapidly growing problem, becoming a major threat to all the positive benefits of digitalisation. The Defentry platform makes it very easy for companies to add personal data protection to a digital service proposition, as well as for companies to provide personal data protection to their employees to the benefit of the business and well as the individual. Defentry has a proven top class technology platform and a scalable distribution model. Spintop looks forward to support Defentry going forward”– says Finn Persson, at Spintop Ventures For more information or press-related inquiries, With peoples demand for identity and privacy protection skyrocketing, Defentry is changing the landscape of Digital life Protection.
