Confiant, a New York-based company that protects the reputation and revenue of digital publishers with anti-malware that stays ahead of malicious actors, announced it has raised $4.1 million in Series A funding led by River Bay Investments and Rubicon Venture Capital.
With this funding round, Confiant is going to support investments in product innovation and hire top talent. And the company is planning to double its headcount in 2019 as it deepens its unique position to solve the problem holistically for the entire ecosystem.
River Bay Investments CEO Tom Leonard is joining Confiant co-founders Louis-David Mangin and Jerome Dangu on the Board of Directors at the company.
“Confiant is the first mover in delivering real-time protection from criminals intent on hijacking digital advertising,” said Mangin in a statement. “As the innovator in protecting publishers and platforms from malvertising, we’ll use this funding to redouble our efforts at delivering the best protection to the industry in the face of the ever-evolving threat of malvertising.”
