Collaboration tool compliance experts Theta Lake has bagged $12.7m in a round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners as the coronavirus pandemic has seen demand for its services skyrocket.
“Theta Lake’s amazing innovations in AI-based risk detection applied to visual, voice, chat and file content in collaboration communications truly sets it apart as a communication security and compliance provider,” said Arif Janmohamed, partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners.
