“We see cyber security as a fast-growing field, and are excited partner with a global deep-tech company that brings onto the world stage an innovation which makes tackling growing cyber threat easier,” states Margus Uudam, Founding Partner of Karma Ventures. According to Uudam, CybExer has already proven itself as a best-in-class cyber range solutions provider for top-tier customers. “With this additional investment, we want to increase its market share and help make this cutting-edge technology accessible to a wider customer base globally,” Uudam says.
“With such features as on-demand library, operational technology, and visualisation tools, our platform is very well positioned to respond to customer needs. Now, we are excited to bring on board a group of investors whose expertise in cyber security and operational scale-up will be an enormous catalyst for growth,” says Andrus Kivisaar, CybExer CEO.

CybExer’s growing roster of clients includes some of the most demanding defence and commercial organisations around the world.
Cyber range market is growing rapidly
CybExer currently estimates the cyber range market to be above €5B annually and expanding as confirmed by the increasing customer interest. “We see new customers from banking, insurance, telcos, municipalities and academia,” Kivisaar explains. “One of the unique features that helps to meet this growing demand is our ability to provide the platform as an on-prem, through the cloud or as a hybrid solution. Our approach to customer experience ensures that the tools on the range are those used in everyday operations and that the environments meet each client’s actual requirements from the word go.”
