2021. ActZero emerges from stealth with $40M for a suite of cybersecurity solutions aimed at SMBs

Startup ActZero is coming out of stealth with a set of solutions aimed specifically at SMBs. Along with its public launch, it’s also announcing that it has raised a seed round of $40 million to get its business going. That solution is focused around monitoring, managed detection and response, he said, not just to discover but to contain cyber threats, which ActZero powers by way of a comprehensive, cloud-based AI platform. The AI in turn helps automate some of its services, bringing down the pricing and making it all something within the budgetary reach of a typical SMB. ActZero’s smallest customers have a few hundred employees, while the biggest have a headcount of around 3,500.
