Valor Leads Seed Round in Senteon, an Atlanta AI Cybersecurity Automation Platform

Mar 15, 2022

Applying AI to proactively automate endpoint cyber security protection is the frontier of cybersecurity defenses. March 15, 2022 08:07 AM Eastern Daylight Time ATLANTA--( BUSINESS WIRE )-- Valor Ventures Fund 2 leads the seed round in Senteon, a SaaS cybersecurity automation platform. Valor welcomes participating investors SaaS Ventures, Purdue University’s cyber security accelerator fund, and Lytical Ventures, an AI-focused VC in NY. Bienfait says, “ Senteon does something long-needed in cyber-security and it does it better than anyone else.” Bienfait’s informed perspective on cybersecurity spans 30 years leading organizations on the frontier of enterprise network cybersecurity. Prior C-suite security roles include CIO & CISO at Blackberry and Chief Innovation Officer for Samsung Enterprise out of Seoul, South Korea. “These visionaries came on our radar through Georgia Tech’s CreateX, a student-led innovation platform. I invited the team to participate with us in Startup Runway and they scored highly. This led to speaking with their customers, introducing potential, global-scale channel partners, and ultimately Valor’s investment.” Senteon is led by co-founders Henry Zhang, CEO, and Nicole Wraback, CTO, a Georgia Tech computer science engineering grad who studied AI. Henry’s experience includes IT vulnerability management for a global Fortune 50, where he identified the problem that led to Senteon. “Our vision is to create secure environments where the people within them continue to grow,” says Zhang. He brings Tier 1 SOC experience with Cisco ATA and has a BS in Computer Science from Purdue University. “We are thrilled to have Valor as our lead investor. The team understands the potential of our platform and started adding value before the check,” says Zhang. The co-founding team, which includes an LGBTQIA founder, expressed, “how impressed we are by Valor’s Inclusion Premium investing strategy, as well as the world class sector expertise Valor General Partner Robin Bienfait brings to Senteon. Together, these made Valor a standout for Senteon in selecting Valor as our lead and partner.” About Valor Ventures Founded in 2015 to create premium venture capital returns and inclusive new wealth creation, Valor Ventures backs experienced founders solving big problems with software at the first professional round.
