Each month I do a quick recap of cybersecurity funding and acquisition stats by the numbers with visuals.

All of this is built off of the data I collect each week from the Security, Funded newsletter. If you're not signed up, please consider it!

At a Glance

A lookback at what moved the cybersecurity market in June 2022.

  • Approximately $919.6M was invested in 54 cybersecurity companies across 33 unique product categories in June 2022, which was a significant drop from the $1.9B invested in 62 companies in May 2022.
  • 10 Series B rounds accounted for 43.4% or $339.0M of funding
  • Almost 70% of funding when to United States-based companies, a 10% drop from May 2022, with 18% of funding going to Israeli companies.
  • Anetcdotally, capital for cybersecurity companies went a bit more global than in previous months. This could have been in part to the beginning of tightening down on investments globally as VCs and PEGs had to be a bit more methodical about their investments.
  • 19 companies across 11 unique product categories accounted for $700.0M merger or acquisition events
  • Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) were once again the most acquired category of company, followed by the Secure Networking category.

Data Collection Methodology

A few tenants I follow for collecting and creating this data:

  • I only use public data sources
  • I evaluate each company that makes this list to make sure they are solving a cybersecurity problem
  • I personally assign the product category for each company (regardless of what their marketing says)
  • All funding and acquisition values are in U.S. dollars
  • All funding amounts are from the time of collection
