Blackpoint Cyber's original investor has taken its exit. TEDCO, which invests in Maryland-based companies, reported that it has exited from the Ellicott City, Maryland-based technology-focused cyber security company.

TEDCO's exit follows a $190 million growth investment in Blackpoint led by Bain Capital Tech Opportunities, with participation from Accel and others.

TEDCO’s Seed Funds invested $200,000 in Blackpoint Cyber in 2018. The investment was intended to support the growth and development of Blackpoint Cyber in its effort to provide effective, affordable real-time threat detection and response to organizations worldwide.
