Saporo Raises $2.7M in Pre Seed Funding


Saporo is a Lausanne-based cybersecurity startup that raised $2.7M in seed funding.

Session VC was the co-leader of this round along with Lightbird Ventures.

The company plans to use the funds for an expansion of the team to 12 in 2022. Key hires will be made in data science and security research, as well as engineering development. This will allow the company to continue product development, explore new markets, and grow its customer base.

Saporo was co-founded by Olivier and Guillaume Eyries and Eric Blavier, a researcher. It is a platform that allows any organization to predict attacks and make informed decisions about managing their risk.

This technology prevents attackers from exploiting the system and user access vulnerabilities by stress-testing them. Machine-learning-driven analysis and graph theorizing are used to assess an organization’s attack surface and relationships between users, assets, and computers against millions of possible threats.

Saporo is able to help organizations move safely to the cloud. It currently supports Microsoft AD, Azure, and Okta, with AWS and GCP also integrated by the end.
This technology continually and contextually measures the security impact of system configurations and their exploitability. Saporo then calculates how difficult it would take for attackers to compromise resources. This allows organisations identify and prioritize possible paths for attackers in ransomware attacks.

The company already works with banks, healthcare, and insurance companies.
