英国数据隐私公司Privitar获花旗集团投资

本周,英国数据隐私公司Privitar宣布获得花旗集团的一笔投资,具体金额并未对外透露。

Privitar成立于2014年,总部设在伦敦,在纽约和巴黎设有办事处。

该公司在2017年7月的A轮融资中筹集了1600万美元,投资者包括现有投资者IQ Capital、24Haymarket和Illuminate Financial,以及Partech Ventures、CME Ventures和Salesforce Ventures等新投资机构的支持。

本次投资说明,花旗已经意识到隐私工程在其数据保护业务中的重要意义。

花旗集团全球运营和技术、市场和证券服务主管Stuart Riley表示,花旗将借此通过更智能地使用机器学习和云计算,帮助客户做出快速、数据化的决策,同时确保数据的安全性和隐私性。

Privitar首席执行官Jason du Preez则表示,该投资将支持该公司的国际扩张,特别是在美国。本次投资过后,该公司计划扩大其在美国东海岸的现有团队规模。

 

UK data privacy outfit Privitar has picked up an undisclosed minority investment from Citi.

Privitar was established in 2014 with headquarters in London and offices in New York and Paris. The company raised $16m in a Series A funding round in July 2017, with support from existing investors IQ Capital, 24Haymarket and Illuminate Financial and new funding from Partech Ventures, CME Ventures and Salesforce Ventures.

For Citi, the investment recognises the increasing strategic importance of privacy engineering in its data priavacy operations.

Stuart Riley, global head, operations and technology, markets and securities services, Citi, says: "Our investment in Privitar demonstrates our commitment to help clients make fast, data-informed, decisions through smarter use of machine learning and cloud compute whilst ensuring the security and privacy of the data."

Jason du Preez, CEO at Privitar says the investment will support the company's international expansion, particularly in the US where it plans to grow its existing teams on the East Coast.

"We are excited to partner with Citi, particularly as we expand operations in the United States," he says. "This deal demonstrates the vital role that data privacy technology has to play in maintaining trust and building confidence in the global data ecosystem."
