Coro continues to experience dramatic growth across all aspects of its business. The Company’s modern approach to cybersecurity – delivering enterprise grade security through a single platform that unifies, simplifies and automates workloads — has been validated by more than 5000 mid-market customers across every vertical industry. Over the past year, Coro tripled its revenue, customer and employee base, and signed more than 100 new channel partners. The Company also expanded its footprint in Chicago, where a new business enablement center is under development to support the company’s direct sales team and rapidly growing network of resellers. Coro projects it will again grow 300% year-over-year in 2023, extending its extraordinary record to a 5th year in a row.
Coro will use the new funding to support its rapidly growing customer base and drive aggressive growth across its R&D, channel, sales and service teams. The new capital will also enable Coro to continue to expand the capabilities of its cybersecurity platform, both organically and through strategic acquisitions.
“Coro’s phenomenal growth shows they have the right solution for a huge and underserved market,” said Shawn Cherian, Partner at Energy Impact Partners. “Mid-market companies need a comprehensive cyber solution that protects their vital business assets without spending outrageous sums or requiring hard to find cybersecurity experts. Coro’s AI-powered platform, based on a modern approach to solving cybersecurity challenges, is taking the market by storm. We’re thrilled to be a part of the Coro revolution as they help secure the nation’s mid-market businesses and enable them to grow and thrive.”
“The additional funding is a validation that Coro’s disruption of the cybersecurity industry is succeeding,” said Guy Moskowitz, CEO, Coro. “While many cybersecurity vendors tried to address the mid-market by selling traditional products that were designed for an enterprise cybersecurity team to manage, Coro took a completely different route. Our modern approach to cybersecurity, where one platform automatically addresses all aspects of cybersecurity, was built from the ground up to ensure that mid-market companies can get enterprise grade protection without the complexity, workload or inflated price tag.”
Coro has stepped up to protect the hundreds of thousands of companies neglected by the cyber security industry by removing the three barriers inherent to the status quo: price, complexity, and the need for a dedicated cyber security team. Unlike current cyber security solutions such as anti-malware or phishing protection, which are focused on specific threats, Coro is the first SaaS solution to include all the security needed for a mid-sized business to protect its users, devices, email, data, and cloud applications. The platform uses automation to offload 95% of the security workload from IT and is offered as an affordable monthly subscription, which makes enterprise-grade security available to any business.
Coro’s modern approach to cybersecurity has been validated by significant customer growth across every vertical industry, including financial services, transportation and logistics, education, healthcare, retail, manufacturing, professional services and more. The company continues to garner top reviews from industry users, and was most recently ranked in G2’s 2023 Top 50 Cybersecurity Products and G2’s 2023 Top 100 Fastest Growing Products.
