SecZetta adds new leadership, customers, and partners to support rapid growth as organizations increasingly choose its solutions to mitigate third-party identity risk
FALL RIVER, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SecZetta, the leading provider of third-party identity risk solutions, today announced its fiscal 2022 year-end business results, ending January 31, 2022. The company saw an impressive 80% growth in annual recurring revenues (ARR). New customer acquisitions, an expanded partnership roster, industry analyst recognition, and several additions to the company’s senior leadership bench helped to support this growth, which was highlighted by the announcement of a $20.5 million Series B funding round in October 2021. SecZetta also grew momentum abroad and expanded its international footprint by opening its EMEA headquarters in London, England.
“In a year that saw record cyberattacks and third-party data breaches impacting nearly every industry, the need for trusted solutions that address key third-party identity management processes and reduce risk has never been greater. This, paired with the need for key contextual data for third-party workforces to implement zero trust architectures, has made SecZetta a preferred identity solutions provider,” said David Pignolet, CEO and founder of SecZetta.
Moving forward, adds Pignolet, “We see opportunity to expand our business with franchises and other organizations with affiliate networks. By design these organizations are heavily reliant on the use of diverse third-party populations to meet operational needs and struggle with managing the access to systems and data required by these non-employee workers. Our third-party identity risk solution uniquely provides capabilities that offer increased visibility into the franchise or affiliate organization and enable automation of key identity processes for these populations. This a huge benefit.” Pignolet concludes, “We look forward to continuing our growth in this industry and others, and expanding our customer base here and in EMEA, as organizations increasingly recognize the need for a strong identity management program for their third-party populations and the unmatched value proposition we bring to global organizations.”

Jim Bandanza, Chief Operating Officer (COO)
Richard Bird, Chief Product Officer (CPO)
Matt Domsch, Chief Technology Officer (CTO)

Proprietary Research Findings
In August 2021 SecZetta released findings from a proprietary omnibus survey of more than 2,000 US adults to gauge consumer opinion about the onslaught of high-profile cyberattacks and determine Americans’ confidence in the ability of organizations and government agencies to prevent these attacks from happening. Key findings from the survey include:
83% of respondents agree that because organizations increasingly rely on contractors, freelancers, and other third-party workers, their data systems have become more vulnerable to cyberattacks
88% of U.S. adults say organizations and government entities must have better data security systems in place to protect them from the increase in third-party remote attacks
53% of respondents lack confidence in the strength of the U.S. government’s infrastructure to protect citizens from cyberattacks.
