U.S.-based cybersecurity company Sumo Logic, Inc. has submitted a filing to the SEC ahead of a planned Nasdaq initial public offering, aiming to raise $100 million.

One of the first investors in the company was Shlomo Kramer, the founder and CEO of Israeli cybersecurity company Cato Networks Ltd. who also co-founded firewall pioneer Check Point. Kramer is estimated to own a 4% share of the company, so was not named in the SEC filing. His shares following the issuance are estimated to be worth roughly $100 million.
