2020. Hunters raises $15M for its AI-based threat-hunting platform
Hunters, a Tel Aviv-based cybersecurity startup that helps enterprises defend themselves from intruders and analyze attacks, has raised a $15 million Series A funding round from Microsoft and other investors. The company’s SaaS platform basically automates the threat-hunting processes, which has traditionally been a manual process. The general idea here is to take as much data from an enterprise’s various networking and security tools to detect stealth attacks.
2020. Uptycs lands $30M for its security analytics platform
Security analytics startup Uptycs announced a $30 million Series B to help companies detect and understand breaches when they happen. It helps to solve intrusion detection, compliance and audit and incident investigation. These are table stakes requirements for security solutions that most large scale organizations have, and of course with their scale the challenges vary. Uptycs uses a flight recorder approach to security, giving security operations teams the ability to sift through the data and review exactly how a detection happened and how the intruder got through the company’s defenses.
2020. Security decoy startup CounterCraft closes $5M Series A
Spain-based CounterCraft, which builds b2b tools for gathering counterintelligence on evolving security threats, has closed a $5M Series A. CounterCraft’s core product is what it bills as a “Threat Deception platform” — supporting its customers’ security function by contributing to three areas: threat detection, intelligence and response; and by using deceptive techniques as a lure to gather better intelligence on threats and attackers for a smarter response. The platform offers a set of common use cases that can be automatically deployed without further configuration — including ‘Remote Worker Protection’; Pre-Breach Activity; Sphere Phishing Response; and Lateral Movement — with the three strands of ‘detection, intelligence and response’ covered for all use cases.
