Who we are:

Panaseer is a unique business that is changing the face of enterprise security.

We are a scale-up at the intersection of data science and big data technology in the rapidly growing cybersecurity sector. We have raised over $43 million in funding and have won numerous awards – including being named winner of ‘Best Product in Continuous Controls Monitoring’ in the RSA Conference, Cyber Defense Magazine Awards. Panaseer’s CCM platform was named as the ‘Best Regulatory Compliance Tool and Solution’ at the SC Awards Europe, and last year we were listed as one of the Top 50 Fastest Growing Technology Companies in the UK in the 2022 Deloitte Technology Fast 50.

Panaseer is the first Continuous Controls Monitoring (CCM) platform for enterprise security. CCM is solving the biggest challenge in cybersecurity today. Enterprises do not know if their security controls are providing full protection at any given moment in time. Panaseer’s CCM platform uniquely correlates data from all security tools to identify and measure missing assets, control gaps, and advise on underperforming controls.

Gartner has included Panaseer as an inaugural vendor in two Hype Cycles for emerging technology. In 2020, in the Continuous Controls Monitoring category under Risk Management, and in 2021 in the Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) category under Network Security. Recently, Momentum Cyber included CCM in its Cybersecurity Almanac, as a next generation technology that will shape the future of cybersecurity, also including Panaseer as an inaugural vendor.

We have multiple strategic partnerships with leading technology vendors such as Cisco, Amazon Web Services and RSA which strengthens our platform.

The team hails from a wide range of backgrounds, skill-sets and experience levels. We work with colleagues that have changed their career to tech, returned to work after a career break, are non-graduates and graduates alike.
