Dutch cybersecurity startup BitSensor raises €400,000 to boost its software development

BitSensor, a cybersecurity startup from Eindhoven, has secured €400,000 in funding led by Volta Ventures to further develop its software and grow its customer support.

The startup, founded by white hat hackers Ruben van Vreeland (21) and Alex Dings (20), uses big data to detect and defend against cyberattacks. This “self-protection” technology is built into the applications themselves.

“We report and protect against attacks when they occur, not months after. Therefore, [companies can] immediately take the necessary measures to avoid more leaks,” said van Vreeland.

Cybersecurity is an ever-growing market and the startup has a unique opportunity to capitalise on that by helping sectors like banks and governments, according to Frank Maene of Volta Ventures.
