In April 2020, a time that now seems a world away, we started Cado Security to build the first cloud-native cyber forensics and response platform – Cado Response. We’ve both spent years responding to breaches in the cloud, and have seen countless examples of how tough it can be. For all the promise of cloud computing, there is still the entirely rational fear that security incidents in the cloud can be a financial, legal and technical minefield.
Seven months later, we are incredibly excited to announce the next stage in our company’s growth.
Today we are announcing our seed funding round, led by Ten Eleven Ventures. When we researched possible investors, Ten Eleven were our first choice. No-one else has the same track record of success in the security space. The advice and on the ground help they’ve given us behind the scenes explains how they have achieved that.
And now we’re looking to grow the team to deliver on the incredible demand we have seen for our platform. If software development or product marketing is your thing – please contact us!

LONDON, England, 5th November 2020 Cado Security (cadosecurity.com), provider of the world’s first cloud-native cyber forensics and response platform Cado Response, today announced the close of a $1.5 million seed round led by Ten Eleven Ventures, the original Silicon Valley-based cybersecurity venture capital firm. Cado Security will use the funding to expand its development team in the United Kingdom.
Traditional tools used to investigate cyber-attacks cannot assess potential impacts on cloud or container infrastructure. To accurately determine impact, companies have historically needed extensive time and a substantial budget to spend on third-party resources with cloud expertise. Regulatory requirements now mandate that companies move even quicker and more thoroughly in the aftermath of an incident. Companies are hard-pressed to find a solution that can help them respond quickly, efficiently, and with confidence, especially in the cloud.
Founders James Campbell and Christopher Doman started Cado Security after their extensive professional experiences helping security teams worldwide navigate this issue. They found security professionals were frustrated by the inadequacy of traditional tools to address cloud infrastructure, as well as the overall time requirement and cost of investigations. Cado’s platform, Cado Response, is an agentless, cloud-native forensics solution that allows security professionals to quickly and comprehensively understand an incident’s impact across all environments, including cloud and containers as well as on-premise systems.
“Finding the root cause of security incidents in cloud or container environments is incredibly difficult. Traditional tools don’t support these new environments, and there is a shortage of people who know both forensics and cloud security,” said CEO James Campbell, formerly Director, Cyber Threat Detection and Response at PricewaterhouseCoopers. “Our Cado Response platform completely changes how security professionals can respond to incidents in the cloud.”
Ten Eleven Ventures General Partner Mark Hatfield, who will join the Cado Security board of directors, added, “The adoption of cloud infrastructure creates many problems for security professionals. We know that forensics in cloud environments is a real pain point. The Cado team has built an elegant and flexible solution that will allow security teams to rapidly respond to incidents in a comprehensive, cross-platform way that will decrease the risks imposed by any one incident, and actually make the company safer going forward. We’re really excited to work alongside James and Chris to help bring their technology to companies around the world.”
Cado Security is currently opening early access to its Cado Response platform to beta customers. Cado also offers a number of free tools on its website to assist security teams. These include Cado Live, a tool to move entire copies of on-premise systems to cloud storage, and Cado Cloud Collector, a tool to copy AWS EC2 instances for forensic analysis.
