Vishaal “V8” Hariprasad, CEO and Co-Founder of Resilience, commented, “The increase in ransomware attacks proves that there are longstanding gaps in today’s cybersecurity and cyber insurance practices. Instead, enterprises need a way to look at their cyber risk in an integrated, economically-efficient, and predictable manner.

“This funding will accelerate our mission to make this a reality for more companies around the world. I want to thank our team and our broker partners for helping us arrive at this milestone.”

Justin Smith-Lorenzetti, of Intact Ventures, added, “We’re thrilled to lead Resilience’s financing round and to work together to build the cyber risk platform of the future. We’re eager to continue pairing the innovative cybersecurity solutions and expertise of Resilience with the insurance expertise of Intact Insurance’s underwriting companies as Resilience’s primary capacity provider.”
