According to Pinpoint Search Group’s Cyber Security Vendor Funding Report for Q1 2024, cybersecurity companies collectively raised $2.3 billion in funding across 77 rounds, a figure relatively consistent with the previous year’s first quarter but representing a 20% decrease from Q1 2023’s total.

Major funding rounds included investments in companies like Silverfort, Extrahop, Bugcrowd, Coro, Axonius, Nozomi, and Claroty.
