In late August, IronNet completed a business combination with special purpose acquisition company LGL Systems Acquisition Corp. Launched in 2014, IronNet offers a unique operational model for cybersecurity defense as it enables companies to break away from having to defend in isolation – a dramatically different way to address a market that is expected to grow from $25 billion to $40 billion over the next 3 years. And IronNet has a proven ability to detect hidden intrusions that no other tools can see and a real-time threat sharing platform that brings speed and precision to security teams and enables companies to detect and collaborate in real-time. This provides the cybersecurity industry’s first network effect go-to-market strategy and builds on the company’s subscription-based recurring revenue financial model.
