We’re an insurance company built by cybersecurity experts, leveraging our security expertise to better understand digital risks and thus create better insurance products and services.

At-Bay has raised over $50M in funding, backed by Acrew Capital, Khosla Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Munich Re Ventures, and Shlomo Kramer. We are currently 45 employees, split between Mountain View, San Francisco, New York City, Atlanta, and Tel Aviv, with a plan to double our headcount and increase our span across the US by year-end.
