  • Insurance company At-Bay announced it raised $185 million in Series D funding at a $1.35 billion valuation. These are the details.

Digital insurance company At-Bay announced it raised $185 million in Series D funding at a $1.35 billion valuation. The new funding round was co-led by Icon Ventures and Lightspeed Venture Partners with participation from existing investors including Khosla Ventures, M12, Acrew Capital, Qumra Capital, the HSB fund of Munich Re Ventures, entrepreneur Shlomo Kramer, and Glilot Capital.

 As the cyber insurance industry is adapting to ransomware losses, At-Bay’s cybersecurity expertise has unlocked unprecedented growth while minimizing losses to less than half of the industry average. The Series D funding round marks the company’s third round in the past 18 months and brings its overall funding to $272 million.

Preeti Rathi, General Partner at Icon Ventures, has joined At-Bay’s Board of Directors in connection with the funding. And Rathi brings to At-Bay a strong track record with early-stage technology companies as a venture capitalist and an operator.

The new funding round is the latest milestone in a stretch of unprecedented growth for At-Bay. And the company recently surpassed $160 million in annual recurring revenue on 800% year-over-year premium growth. At-Bay is growing at this pace while outperforming the cyber insurance market on risk mitigation while maintaining a ransomware claims frequency that is seven times lower than the industry average.

With the new funding round, At-Bay will continue investing in innovation while launching new products and expanding into new markets. And the company will also continue growing its team and capabilities to improve the security of its insured businesses.
