FintekNews VC Deal of the Day – RiskIQ Lands $30M

RiskIQ is NOT a fintech, folks, so let’s clear that up right away.  What is is, though, is a cybersecurity firm and they play with some of the biggest dogs on the porch – eight of the top 10 financial institutions in the US, and five of the nine leading internet companies in the world.  Clients include Facebook, Under Armour & TripAdvisor, amongst others.  Because they are so heavily involved in the fintech sector, though, we are featuring them today as our FintekNews VC Deal of the Day.
