Devo Announces $100 Million Funding Round Led by Eurazeo to Fuel Global Expansion and Acquisitions

Cloud-Native Logging and Security Analytics Leader Boosts Valuation to $2 Billion

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Devo Technology, the cloud-native logging and security analytics company, today announced $100 million in Series F funding at a valuation of $2 billion. Eurazeo—a leading global investment firm with over $30 billion in assets under management—led the round, and all other existing investors—Insight Partners, Georgian, TCV, General Atlantic, Bessemer Venture Partners, Kibo Ventures—also participated. Additionally, ISAI Cap Venture provided a strategic investment in the round. The round brings the total capital raised to more than $500 million. The new funding will fuel growth in new regions and verticals, accelerate Devo’s delivery of the “autonomous SOC” and fund potential new M&A expansion.

The funding round comes on the heels of Devo’s acquisition of Kognos, the AI-powered threat hunting pioneer, which marked a key step in delivering what Devo calls the autonomous SOC— complete visibility, automation, analytics, and open access to community expertise and content.

“Security teams are facing more threats than ever—regardless of industry or geography—and that challenge is compounded by the difficulty of hiring and retaining talent, a lack of visibility into the full attack surface, and the speed and scale necessary to keep up with not just growing threats, but the growth of their organizations,” said Marc van Zadelhoff, CEO of Devo. “This round of funding allows us to deliver on the autonomous SOC through continued innovation of our technology, expand to more regions to serve more customers, and consider more M&A opportunities. We’re thrilled to have instilled such confidence in our investors that they continue to support our innovation and the value we deliver to customers.”

Devo will continue to drive expansion in new verticals and geographies, particularly the public sector and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. In February, Devo announced it was designated as Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program’s (FedRAMP) “In-Process” and expects to reach full authorization in the fall of 2022. Devo has also seen substantial growth in the APAC region, including adding energy provider Powerco as a customer and deploying an in-region AWS environment for customers and partners.

“Devo has proven to be a disruptive force in the security analytics market and we believe in its vision to fundamentally change the way organizations secure their data,” said Guillaume d’Audiffret, Managing Director at Eurazeo, who joins the Devo Board. “It is setting a pace for innovation that will enable its customers to meet the ever-growing challenges facing security teams and we look forward to continuing our work together with Devo and fellow investors to further develop its market leadership.”

The round comes as Devo closes out an impressive fiscal year of aggressive growth, including:

  • Nearly 100% annual revenue growth
  • Nearly 100% customer growth for the year, including Sonos, AT&T, and Unisys
  • Achieving FedRAMP “In-Process” status, and adding public sector customers including Ivy Tech Community College and Oklahoma University
  • Surpassing 500 employees across North America, Europe, and APAC, including 91 new hires so far in 2022
  • Acquisition of Kognos, an AI-powered security automation innovator
  • Launch of Devo Exchange, a community-based application marketplace for Devo customers and partners

The funding announcement coincides with the launch of a newly established team of security researchers and data scientists to form Devo SciSec, led by Chief Technology Officer, Gunter Ollmann.

About Devo
Devo is the only cloud-native logging and security analytics platform that releases the full potential of your data to empower bold, confident action. With unrivaled scale to collect all of your data without compromise, speed to give you immediate access and answers, and clarity to focus on the signals that matter most, Devo is your ally in protecting your organization today and tomorrow.

Schneider Electric ranks 2nd in The Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2022

  • Climbs 2021 ranking, up two from 4th place
  • Three consecutive years Schneider Electric has placed in the top five

Rueil-Malmaison (France), 2 June 2022 – Schneider Electric, the global leader in energy management and automation, was ranked second in the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2022.
This is the third time Schneider Electric has placed in the top five and the seventh consecutive year it has ranked on the list. This demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment and investment to strengthen its supply chain strategy.

Schneider Electric’s Hyderabad, India factory, recognized by the World Economic Forum as an Advanced Lighthouse in 2022

This recognition comes in a year of prolonged supply chain disruption. Companies around the world and across industries continue to be challenged by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, facing constrained labor availability, global shortages of raw materials and electronics, and transportation issues. It has become even more critical for corporates to rethink, reprioritize, and reinforce the robustness of their supplier network and increase local capacity.

The Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2022 identifies, celebrates, and profiles companies demonstrating excellence in supply chain management amid global supply chain disruption. The list is decided based on three aspects:

  • Financial metrics including return on physical assets and revenue growth
  • Corporate social responsibility including ESG measures
  • Community opinion including Gartner experts and industry peers.

“We are humbled and honored to be recognized by Gartner and our peers,” said Mourad Tamoud, Schneider Electric’s Executive Vice President of Global Supply Chain. “We continue to invest in improving our supply chain because we have an unwavering commitment to our customers and sustainability. We think this recognition is further proof we are on the right path — that investing in people and fourth industrial revolution technologies has concrete benefits for resilience, agility, efficiency, and sustainability.”

Earlier this year, Schneider was recognized by Gartner in the Power of the Profession™ Supply Chain Awards. for its Adaptive Machine Learning Driver ‘Self-Healing’ Supply Chain in the Process or Technology Innovation of the Year category. The Schneider platform optimizes performance-related parameters such as safety stock quantity, minimum order quantities, and lead times on a real-time basis through machine learning. This has resulted in savings of more than €100 million.

Sustainability is at the core of Schneider’s purpose and mission, and the first pillar in its supply chain strategy, STRIVE (Sustainable, Trusted, Resilient, Intelligent, Velocity and Efficiency). Now in its second year, the company has accelerated its transformation toward becoming the most agile, innovative, planet and customer-centric supply chain.
Last year, Schneider launched the Zero Carbon Project, which aims to lower the carbon footprint of its supply chain. More than 1,000 suppliers, which represent 70% of Schneider’s carbon emissions, have committed to the initiative to half their operations’ CO2 emissions by 2025. The Project is part of Schneider’s 2021-2025 sustainability goals, and is a concrete step towards limiting the rise in average global temperatures to 1.5°C or less by 2050, as targeted by the Paris Agreement.

Earlier this year, Schneider Electric’s Le Vaudreuil factory in France was recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Sustainability Lighthouse, one of only six globally, and two for the company with the other being Lexington, Kentucky. Its Hyderabad factory in India was also recognized as an Advanced Lighthouse, bringing the company’s total count to five.
