Kobalt.io is pleased to announce our successful completion of an oversubscribed $1.25M seed round from a prestigious group of Canadian and US angel investors. “The small and mid-sized business market is incredibly under-served. With our seed funding, we are aiming to accelerate our growth to better serve our clients and community,” said Michael Argast, CEO and Co-Founder, Kobalt.io. Our global team members and extended bench of experts are flexible with the dynamic environments and technologies our clients operate. Kobalt.io’s global operational capabilities help detect malicious activities faster, enabling our clients to minimize risks and impact.


This year, cloud technologies have been adopted at a much faster pace and larger scale as companies have shifted to remote work in the midst of a pandemic. Kobalt.io’s team of experts support our cloud focused, technology clients by assessing their security program to build a strong foundation through insight and visibility. Depending on clients’ needs, our team will then develop clients’ security programs with a clear and actionable roadmap to address risks. Then, we run their security program with ongoing monitoring and expert governance. Through this assessment, development and run process, Kobalt.io helps smaller businesses build a well-rounded program with a clear vision of identified threats and effectively addresses prioritized risks. “Kobalt is incredibly excited about supporting an expanded network of clients within North America and thankful for our clients, partners and team members who have contributed to our rapid growth,” said Argast. “Nothing is better than solving our client’s security needs, and thus unlocking their growth potential.”
