deepwatch, a leading provider of intelligence-driven managed security services, today announced another strong year of growth including significant customer, product, partner and team expansion in 2020.
The global pandemic disrupted business operations. Workforces shifted to a remote paradigm, the attack surface was significantly expanded, and the new environment interjected greater security risks for businesses. Highlighted by the SolarWinds hack in December, cyberattacks increased dramatically throughout 2020 — with the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center reporting up to a 400 percent increase in complaints.
“The increased risk drove greater demand for the protection delivered by deepwatch, resulting in a surge of new business among existing and new customers, including numerous Fortune 500 companies,” said deepwatch CEO Charlie Thomas. “Our October announcement of a $53 million Series B investment led by Goldman Sachs with participation from ABS Capital Partners, enables us to further accelerate our growth by attracting top talent, extending our innovative cloud platform, and growing our sales and partner ecosystem. As one of the fastest growing cloud companies, deepwatch’s growth places us among leading Cloud companies like Shopify, Coupa, HashiCorp and Twilio.”
2020 highlights include:
- 175 billion logs analyzed
- 15 million Intelligence alerts
- 60,000 actionable incidents caught
- >100% net revenue retention
- 225% growth in customers subscribing to multiple products
- >400% growth in new partner ARR

- Grew Partner Ecosystem > 500%
