Recommendations

Norbert Sagnard Investor at Convergence International S.A.

I have mentored Kiran Bhagotra while she developed her business at the Start Planet NI accelerator in Q1-2017, and was impressed by both her knowledge of the cybersecurity eco-system, incl. the trends and challenges for SMEs, and her vision for a service that is badly needed. All this added to her determination and stamina and her ability to surround herself with expert team members, makes her an investable executive who I trust can develop PB into a very large business, this is why I'm on board right from the seed round.

To whom it concerns,

I have acted as a consultant on a number of projects for ProtectBox. My research interests and academic teaching is in the realm of computer security therefore I was most interested in interacting with them. I found them reliable clients and a pleasure to work with. The concept of a cyber product search and comparison engine is extremely interesting and I was delighted to collaborate closely with them on further refining the backend aspects of the engine. There is a great deal of potential in this space for ProtectBox to build on and capture a significant share in a market which looks likely to expand greatly in the coming years.
I endorse them as a company and I look forward to further collaborations with them and indeed seeing them becoming a vital service for the enterprises and individuals struggling to discriminate between the multitude of cyber products on the market at present.
