Kriptos, an Ecuadorian data management platform, raised an undisclosed round from SixThirty Cyber and existing investors BuenTrip Ventures, Barclays, Kruger Corporation, and Techstars.

(Contxto) Ecuadorian data management startup Kriptos recently wrapped up an investment round for an undisclosed amount.
