This is an understatement - Silicon Valley has never seen so many security startups which probably means that 2015 is a boom time and entrepreneurs need to get on with funding their inventions before the cycle turns against them.
Funded three years ago in deep cover, thus far Spikes Security has raised just over $11 million (£7.2 million) from three VCs helped along by money from Spikes himself. He predicts a series B funding round next year.
A clue that Spikes might rise above the background noise is its list of early customers, including [cut-and-paste] the US Department of Homeland Security, Novartis, Boeing, Wells Fargo and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Adding a UK name to that list will help. By June, when the next version of the product is promised to appear, the world should know more.
