Today’s business environment puts cybersecurity firms on the front lines of the battle against attackers looking to steal private customer and corporate data. That’s why we’ve formed a practice group to promote mission-driven, innovative companies in the cybersecurity industry.
A 2019 report by Microsoft and insurance consultancy Marsh showed that cyberattacks have emerged as the No. 1 business concern of most executives, even as their belief in their ability to manage cyber risk declined. That gap creates tremendous opportunities for our clients, who cover a broad spectrum of data protection:
- Praetorian: Praetorian is a cybersecurity company whose mission is to make the world safer and more secure. Through expertise and engineering, Praetorian helps today’s leading organizations solve complex cybersecurity problems across their critical enterprise assets and product portfolios. Praetorian is headquartered in Austin, Texas.
- Anitian: Anitian makes security and compliance easy. Leveraging the power and scale of the cloud, the Anitian Compliance Automation platform automatically builds, configures and monitors cloud environments to accelerate compliance with security frameworks such as PCI, FedRAMP, ISO and more.

“Our team has seen the evolution of cybersecurity over the past 15 years,” said Ethan Parker, founder and CEO of Treble. “Cybersecurity has emerged as a boardroom-level issue across the enterprise. Treble has the depth of experience and expertise to align and win as strategic partners for companies with market-leading cybersecurity technology.”
Treble has been a strategic partner to propel 15 startups to exit since 2014. Successful exits across the Treble client portfolio include TrendKite (acquired by Cision), Favor (acquired by H-E-B), StackEngine (acquired by Oracle), Boxer (acquired by VMware) and Joyride (acquired by Google).
“Treble has been a tremendous partner in elevating our brand and the problem we are solving,” said Aanand Krishnan, founder and CEO at Tala Security. “The team is at the forefront of breaking news and has established relationships with journalists that enable us to be featured prominently in stories we would otherwise not have known about. The end result is a powerful combination of press coverage that accelerates our growth trajectory.”
Headquartered in Austin, Treble has partnered with venture capital firms and venture-backed technology companies across the United States. Treble has senior-level talent based in San Francisco and Denver. It has a proprietary, scalable pricing model to adapt specifically to the needs of the growth stage of a company, from seed-stage funding to publicly traded enterprises.
“I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with Ethan for two decades,” said John Vecchi, chief marketing officer at Anitian. “At Anitian, we look forward to a strategic partnership that puts our C-level executives on the national stage and furthers our credibility as a global leader in cybersecurity and compliance.”
