The investors are evidently excited about Pindrop’s enterprise security technology, which is designed to use a range of metrics to detect potential fraud in inbound calls, including metadata such as geolocation, background noise, and even voice recognition. This enthusiasm is also reflected in growing market traction for Pindrop, which reports that it has seen a 137 percent compounded annual growth rate over the last three years, and that it expects triple-digit growth in its EMEA business for 2019.

In the US, the company says that it counts eight of the 10 largest banks and five of the seven largest insurance companies among its clients.

Commenting on his firm’s investment in a statement, Vitruvian Partners Senior Partner David Nahama said, “We are confident that Pindrop is poised for massive expansion given the company’s depth of engineering expertise, pioneering efforts in machine learning technology and patent portfolio.”
