Certivox recieves funding for information security service

Information security company Certivox has received £900,000 in Series A funding from Pentech Ventures, which led the round, and Octopus Investments, both based in the UK.

The funds will be used to develop and bring to market Certivox’s key management infrastructure as a service (IaaS), which, according to Certivox, is designed to remove the barrier that has prevented enterprises from fully embracing cloud-based services, due to concerns over risking sensitive information.
