Fishtech announces investment in Florida cyber security company

Fishtech Group has announced an investment in Perch Security, an information security company based in Tampa, Florida.

Fishtech, the Kansas City-based cyber security company and technology accelerator, aims to boost Perch’s marketing and accelerate product development with the capital infusion, according to a news release.

Terms of the investment were not disclosed.

Fishtech CEO and founder Gary Fish and CFO Ryan Shreve will join Perch’s board, according to the release.

“Perch’s specific set of product offerings is well-timed for a market that’s really coming into its own,” Fish said in a news release. “We believe the market will continue to see a shift of cyber defense dollars to solutions that facilitate threat detection independent of intel source.”

Fishtech has previously invested $4 million in Haystax Technology, a Virginia-based security analytics platform provider, and $3 million in Foresite, a managed security services provider based in Overland Park, Kansas.

Earlier this year, Fishtech Group announced plans to build a cloud security operations center in suburban Kansas City, on the same campus as its headquarters.
