Veriff closed a financing round of 15.5 M USD to ramp up global growth and sales prior to a larger B-series financing round planned in the future.

NEW YORK, USA, July 1, 2020 / — Veriff closed a financing round of 15.5 M USD to ramp up global growth and sales to enterprise customers prior to a larger B-series financing round planned in the future. Money was raised from both new and existing investors.

According to Veriff founder and CEO Kaarel Kotkas, despite the global crisis caused by COVID-19, the company has witnessed increased customer engagement and taken advantage of accelerated digitalization around the world. “Last year, our verification volumes grew by 35 times, and we’ve kept up with the growth trajectory this year. However, we are also targeting profitability,” added Kotkas.

“We’ve increased our sales volumes, continuously improving our technology, and signed agreements with major global customers in Silicon Valley. As a result of these activities, we’ve earned the trust of investors and we’ll be expecting solid results for the year 2020,” said Kotkas.

According to Rainer Sternfeld, Managing Partner of NordicNinja VC, a Japanese-Nordic venture fund and a new investor in Veriff, said the identity verification company has shown sound performance. “Veriff has been able to significantly grow their business, successfully enter the market in the UK as well as in the U.S., and signed agreements with some Silicon Valley’s biggest players. We at NordicNinja are excited to see what the future has in store for Veriff, especially as it’s an essential service with a potential to reach every person on the planet.”

The global pandemic has brought along significant paradigm shifts. This has created an increased demand for online identity verification, and Veriff is taking this responsibility seriously. “During the pandemic, we were in close contact with our international customers, and witnessed how global tech giants as well as more traditional businesses pivoted their strategies in response to the crisis,” added Kotkas.

Investors include Y Combinator and Mosaic Ventures from the earlier A-series investment round, but also new investors, like NordicNinja VC and Change Ventures. Current investment brings Veriff’s total financing to 23,8 million USD and enables the company to accelerate its global growth even further.

Unique, modular, cost-effective data analytics for 100Gbps launched by Velocimetrics

Velocimetrics’ unique approach to allow companies to analyse all enterprise data at just 50% of current costs

LONDON, UK, July 1, 2020 / — Velocimetrics, a Beeks Financial Cloud company (AIM: BKS) and the leader in business flow tracking and real-time, in-stream performance analytics, is today announcing a unique, modular, software-only approach to monitoring and analytics of 100Gbps network feeds. Exchanges and trading companies can now fast-track their move to 100Gbps using their existing hardware, rather than having to invest in new, dedicated and expensive servers. The new solution enables each business to decide their best implementation strategy and control the cost and phasing of the transition. The innovation was launched in response to increasing demand from the market for real-time monitoring capability for 100Gbps.

Gordon McArthur, CEO of Beeks Financial Cloud and owner of Velocimetrics, said: “Regulation and competition are driving the need for more intelligent collection, storing and analysis of data; the limiting factors have always been high cost and the need for dedicated hardware – our 100Gbps monitoring system has now dramatically changed the cost / benefit ratio. Velocimetrics is leading the way in 100Gbps monitoring capabilities in the trading space, previously a pain-point for the industry as data volumes increase.”

He adds: “This solution uniquely allows companies to install across their existing tech estate and achieve major cost reductions and achieve significant speed and capacity advantages. The modular approach allows packet capture and telemetry to be split, giving trading participants the ability to use their standard trading servers and to deploy various monitoring and analytics capabilities at a time of their choosing.”

The demand for 100Gbps is being driven by a rapid and continuing growth in data volumes. However, monitoring network data at 100Gbps, rather than the existing ‘standard’ of 10Gbps, presents enormous challenges because of the tenfold increase in data. Velocimetrics is the first vendor to hit the necessary performance benchmark with a modular approach, creating a very cost-effective and flexible way of doing this, without having to buy expensive dedicated appliances. This new capability allows businesses to have complete visibility of their trading operations, and a forensic record of network traffic, at speeds which were previously impossible.

Having an increased ability to analyse all the data going through the network means companies can examine original network traffic and diagnose problem origins; the more trading companies understand their trading systems and trading success, the more competitive they can be: by refining trading strategies, creating real-time alerts when business or technical thresholds have been reached.

Velocimetrics’ 100Gbps monitoring software is being deployed by one of the major, global exchanges as the trading world is looking to move to this kind of capability; it is also being evaluated by a number of large trading firms.
