Tom Millar, CEO of ITC, spoke about the deal: “We met many other finance vehicles, but C5 as a specialist investor with deep understanding of cyber security, data and cloud computing sectors. Quite simply C5 added to our business in ways that others couldn’t. C5 Capital bring with them a wealth of experience, insight and a powerful network.

“They recognised the opportunity and momentum that ITC has. I have no doubt that C5’s involvement will help accelerate this momentum. Critically, given their know-how, they quickly recognised ITC’s ability and passion for delivering our customers best in class end-to-end enterprise security solutions and services. We look forward to working with them,” he added.

As part of the deal, ITC is also set to benefit from C5 Capital’s experience in the cybersecurity, data analytics and cloud computing fields.

We have been highly impressed by the company’s end-to-end security solutions and technology roadmap, as well as the trusted relationships they have built with a blue chip customer base. We are excited to partner with a great founder-led team to support the company’s next phase of growth.”
