The Israeli vehicle cybersecurity startup will use the new funds to accelerate the growth of its cloud platform
Founded in 2017 by Yoav Levy (CEO) and Yonatan Appel (CTO), Upstream offers specialized cloud-based data services for connected cars, including cybersecurity, quality enhancement, and data monetization opportunities. It currently employs 70 people and is in the process of recruiting 25 more. MSI was founded in 2010 as a merger of Aioi, MSI, and Nissay Dowa Companies and is considered the largest insurance company in Japan and the fifth-largest non-life insurance group in the world.
"The cooperation between Upstream Security and MSI will create new data-based opportunities for both auto manufacturers and insurance companies and their clients," said Yoav Levy.
