We're super happy to announce this new milestone. KnowBe4 has reached unicorn status valuing the company at $1 billion with the new KKR $300 million investment. You can read the press release here, and the scoop in Fortune Magazine here.
Threats like phishing, ransomware and other forms of social engineering continue to plague organizations of all sizes. The relationship we started with KKR earlier this year has been fruitful for both of us. This new round enables KnowBe4 to continue to focus on helping our clients build a human shield against cyber threats, while also accelerating KnowBe4’s roll-out in new markets to help more companies around the globe.
I'd like to thank you for your trust in us, and for telling your friends about our platform. This is only the beginning of building a strong human firewall and we still need all the help we can get.
So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much. We will continue doing our level best to help you keep your organization safe, and please keep spreading the word.
Founder and CEO, KnowBe4, Inc.
Here's the KnowBe4 team celebrating!
