Google Ventures has participated in London-based cybersecurity startup Snyk’s latest Series B $22 million investment round, with venture capital firm Accel leading the round.

The trend: The tech titan’s venture capital arm appears to have a knack for cybersecurity investments that lead to acquisition deals. In 2012 Google Ventures invested in Duo Security, a multi-factor security tool which Cisco announced this year it intends to acquire. More recently in 2016, Google Ventures invested in CoreOS, a container management system which was acquired by RedHat earlier this year.

The big picture: Google also has a cybersecurity company of its own, Chronicle, which was founded in 2016 and which is headed up by Stephen Gillett, formerly Symantec's COO. Chronicle offers cybersecurity software to Fortune 500 companies, including at least two services: a virus-scanning tool and a security analytics tool, per Inc.

President Trump's final debate performance exceeded Americans' expectations, but it wasn't enough to shift the dynamics that left him trailing Joe Biden across most measures, according to a new Axios-SurveyMonkey poll.

What they're saying: "Liar" was the word used most by debate watchers to describe Trump's performance, followed by "lies," "strong," "presidential" and "childish." "Presidential" was the word used most to describe Biden's performance, followed by "liar," "weak," "expected" and "honest."

The mainstream media turned away. But online, President Trump's charges about Hunter Biden were by far the dominant storyline about the final presidential debate, according to exclusive NewsWhip data provided to Axios.

  • Coverage of business dealings by Joe Biden's son — and pre-debate allegations by one of his former business associates, Tony Bobulinski — garnered more than twice as much online activity (likes, comments, shares) as the runner-up.
