We could not be prouder to support their mission.”.”

“As an entrepreneur working for more than two decades in the space industry, I have been involved leading a number of startup businesses past early-stage development to successful execution of US government programs of high importance to science, exploration and national security. I have seen firsthand the US cyber dangers to our economic and national security. At the small and medium enterprise level we need a cost-effective robust solution to nullify the risk while maintaining business agility and competitiveness. I have invested in the RADICL team and their approach to addressing this challenge as both a patriot and responsible investor. Go RADICL.”
Chris Pearson, Space Industry Veteran and Executive | Strategic Investor & Advisor
“In my role, I work with innovative medical device manufactures across the globe.  These businesses are inventing the future of healthcare.  I chose to invest in RADICL to protect the work these companies do and the patients they serve.  The RADICL team brings the necessary leadership and experience to solve this hard problem, and better protect the supply chain of my industry from devastating IP theft and ransomware attacks.”
John Klein, Chief Procurement Officer at Medtronic | Strategic Investor & Advisor
“Small and medium businesses have long struggled to meet the resource requirements of operating a robust cybersecurity infrastructure in a dynamic threat and vulnerability environment. As the landscape has evolved to include nation-state actors, SMB’s find themselves in an unfair battle with adversaries who have both unlimited resources and unlimited time. RADICL is changing that equation by providing their SMB customers with the same kind of world-class security monitoring and continuous protection as that employed by Fortune 1000 companies. I invested in RADICL because SMBs need a fresh opportunity to focus on their business while letting industry experts oversee their cybersecurity challenges.”

"A day doesn't go by that we don't hear about, or even experience the criticality (and often the failure) of security solutions today. For our government and critical infrastructure, the stakes are higher than ever. And after more than 30 years working in this space, it's clear that small and medium businesses are not prepared for this high-risk endeavor. That's why the mission of RADICL is so important and why I wanted to be a part of it."

“Nation state threat actors are too often and too easily able to affect the productivity and profitability of smaller businesses. These businesses face many of the same challenges as big corporates but without the same budgets to secure themselves. Our economies depend upon these businesses and now they can depend on the team at RADICL.”

Martin Landless, Area Vice President EMEA, Keyfactor & Former Vice President Sales Europe, LogRhythm | Strategic Investor & Advisor

“I have known Dave Graff and family for over 30 years as an US Air Force Colonel, Base Commander, and F-15/F-22 fighter pilot. My respect and trust in Dave, combined with the need for better cybersecurity drove me to invest in RADICL Defense. Every day we seem to hear stories that indicate companies need to better secure their networks. RADICL brings a solid and experienced management team to tackle a critical problem in a market with exponential growth opportunity. I believe RADICL’s strategy is the right one to serve the often overlooked, yet often attacked, SMB market.”

Graham Allen, Senior Director Product Strategy, NICE CXone  | Strategic Investor & Advisor

“I chose to join RADICL as an advisor due to the deep level of respect I have in the leadership team behind the company, their mission, and the path they are building towards providing a truly unique security solution focused on one of the most challenging problems that we, as network defenders, face today. I firmly believe that their unique approach, technical capacity, business acumen, and altruistic intentions will pave the way towards new innovations and thoughtful contributions to their customers and the industry as a whole, and I am excited to have the opportunity to be a part of this journey.”
