Rakesh Kharwal, MD-India, Cyberbit, said,
“Along with the global expansion, this funding will also be leveraged to accelerate sales and marketing in India, to increase our existing reach within the financial and enterprise sector, and particularly to penetrate the higher education sector in India, where we’ve seen great success globally, by helping colleges and universities launch hands-on cybersecurity programmes based on cyber-range simulation.”

“The investment from Charlesbank will allow us to solidify our position as a best-of-breed product and allow us to accelerate our global expansion.”
