Privacy-enhancing software firm Privitar has landed £3m in a round led by venture capital firm Illuminate Financial Management.

Founded in 2014, the London-based firm operates at the intersection of Big Data, data science and cybersecurity, providing software that adds privacy protection to data infrastructures.

Privitar says it will use the funds to accelerate growth in the UK and expand its European footprint.

They will support our strategy to provide the leading solutions for Banking and Capital Markets institutions. This complements the breadth of sector access facilitated by our existing investors.”
