Cyware Raises $30 Million to Accelerate Expansion of AI-Powered Global Cyber Fusion and Threat Sharing Networks

Businesswire | July 05, 2023

Cyware, the leading provider of AI-powered Cyber Fusion platforms for enterprises and MSSPs, and automated threat intelligence sharing for information sharing networks, today announced a $30 million Series C financing round led by Ten Eleven Ventures, a leading multi-stage investment firm specializing in cybersecurity. Also participating are previous investors including Advent International, Zscaler, Emerald Development Managers, Prelude (the venture practice at Mercato Partners) and Great Road Holdings. The Series C financing comes as Cyware has experienced strong year-over-year growth propelled by robust market adoption, excellent customer retention, and extraordinarily large market access. Since Series A financing, Cyware has shown growth of 6x and consolidated its position as an industry leader for threat intelligence automation, security orchestration, and collaborative threat response solutions. Earlier this year, Cyware achieved FedRAMP Ready status for its Cyber Fusion platform and was named one of the most innovative and promising cybersecurity companies by JMP Cyber 66, as well as being recognized in the 2022 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 as one of the Fastest Growing Technology Firms in North America. Cyware’s cloud-based platform is leveraged by top Fortune 1000 and MSSP security teams to transform their legacy SOCs into Cyber Fusion Centers. The platform seamlessly integrates the AI-powered threat intelligence platform (TIP) with data orchestration and workflow automation (SOAR), to facilitate and synchronize actions between cloud and on-premises security tools and technologies. This enables security teams to connect the dots on emerging threats by correlating actionable threat intelligence with detection, threat hunting, vulnerability management, and incident response operations. Cyware’s Cyber Fusion platform is modular, and the underlying TIP, SOAR, and Collaborative Threat Response components can be leveraged in combination or individually by security teams providing them greater flexibility in transforming conventional SOCs. The Cyware platform has become the backbone of global Threat Sharing Networks. Almost all major ISACs (Information Sharing and Analysis Centers), ISAOs, and CERTs use Cyware’s platform to automate threat intelligence sharing, analysis, and actioning for more than 30,000 enterprise members and government entities. The platform also enables large conglomerates, industry groups, and private communities to activate and share threat intelligence with their distributed businesses, clients, and suppliers, and benefit from automated collective defense against ransomware, supply chain attacks, and zero-day vulnerabilities. “Security teams today face an overwhelming amount of data, but silos across data, processes, and technologies make it very challenging to see the bigger picture and proactively stop threats," said Anuj Goel, Cyware CEO and Co-founder. “Our mission at Cyware is to break down these silos, integrate threat intelligence into SOC operations, make it easy for teams to automate response, and act immediately to anticipate and stop threats.” “Threat actors thrive because the rest of us don’t collaborate enough,” said Alex Doll, Founder and Managing Member of Ten Eleven Ventures. “Only Cyware allows overstretched security teams to expand their risk visibility beyond their borders with innovative threat intelligence collaboration while dramatically improving response with vendor-agnostic orchestration and low-code automation. As seasoned investors in the cybersecurity field, we recognize that Cyware’s remarkable platform, revenue growth, and vast customer base – including over 20 ISACs – puts them in an enviable market position.” Cyware plans to leverage this new round of funding to fuel further growth and accelerate channel business and strategic alliances while expanding its global footprint. About Cyware Cyware delivers an innovative approach to cybersecurity that unifies threat intelligence, automation, threat response, and vulnerability management with data insights gleaned from assets, users, malware, attackers, and vulnerabilities. Cyware’s Cyber Fusion platform integrates SOAR and TIP technology, enabling collaboration across siloed security teams. Cyware is widely deployed by enterprises, government agencies, and MSSPs, and is the leading threat intelligence sharing platform for global ISACs and CERTs.

Menlo Security™ Redefines Browser Security with Industry-First AI-Powered Phishing and Ransomware Protection

PR Newswire | August 03, 2023

Menlo Security, Inc. ("Menlo Security"), a leader in browser security, today announced HEAT Shield™ and HEAT Visibility™, the industry's first suite of threat prevention capabilities designed to detect and block highly evasive threats targeting users via the web browser. Menlo Security HEAT Shield™ detects and blocks phishing attacks before they can infiltrate the enterprise network. It uses novel, AI-based techniques – including computer vision combined with URL risk scoring and analysis of the web page elements – to accurately determine in real time if the link being accessed is a phishing site designed to steal the user's credentials. In parallel, HEAT Visibility performs continual analysis of web traffic and applies AI/ML-powered classifiers that identify the presence of highly evasive attacks. This delivers timely, actionable alerts that enable security teams to significantly reduce mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) to any highly evasive threats that could be targeting enterprise users. "Highly evasive threats are growing as threat actors evolve how they deploy phishing and malware attacks," said Michael Urciuoli, Chief Information Officer of JPMorgan Chase Asset and Wealth Management. "Tools like Menlo Security's browser security solution, including their HEAT Shield, can help to combat cyber threat vectors for the world's top financial institutions, governments and leading enterprises." Menlo Security HEAT Shield and HEAT Visibility are built on Menlo Security's cloud-based Isolation Core™ which monitors and analyzes over 400 billion web sessions annually. Commonly deployed security infrastructure such as Secure Web Gateways, firewalls, endpoint security and EDR solutions are blind to actions occurring inside the browser and fall short in combating web-based attacks including highly evasive threats. HEAT Shield leverages the Isolation Core to power dynamic security policies which can be applied to users based on web session events and behavior to prevent attackers from gaining access to the endpoint. Individuals are protected from potential threats without any impact on the end user experience. "We know we need to protect our network from emerging attacks and threats targeting the web browser," said Greg Pastor, Director of Information Security for Remedi SeniorCare. "We are seeing highly evasive threats as a concerning and growing tactic amongst threat actors, and solutions like HEAT Shield can dynamically block these attacks, even if they are zero hour, keeping our endpoints safe." A HEAT Attack™ Dashboard allows customers to receive detailed threat intelligence, which can be integrated into their existing SIEM or SOC platforms, while HEAT alerts sent to SOC teams provide real time threat visibility to enrich their existing threat intelligence sources and enhance and accelerate incident response capabilities. Nick Edwards, Vice President, Product Management at Menlo Security, said, "Adversaries have placed a massive bullseye on the web browser. It has become the new desktop, where we spend the bulk of our working day. Legacy security vendors are fighting yesterday's war by trying to shoehorn network security and endpoint tools to keep users safe and it isn't working. The capabilities we are introducing today mark a significant leap forward towards our mission of creating a secure, seamless browsing experience, ensuring the internet can be used safely by our customers." Menlo Security isolates more than four billion files annually for many of the largest and most security-conscious organizations around the world. Threat actors are refining their techniques daily, developing novel and innovative ways to target their victims through the web browser, often testing their attacks against commonly deployed security tools before launching them in the wild. "Armed with this knowledge and a decade of developing industry-leading browser security products, we are proud to be able to deliver the industry's first suite of threat prevention capabilities designed to detect and block HEAT attacks," continued Edwards. Both HEAT Shield and HEAT Visibility are generally available now across Menlo Security's global network. "Menlo Security's HEAT Shield product allows us to offer reliable, preventative security to our clients who are exposed to highly evasive threats every day," said Jamie Gray, VP, Sales-East at Tevora. "Web browser threats are growing in both frequency and sophistication, so it's critical that companies have the technology to help them, not distract them. Menlo Security's HEAT Shield is going to make a difference to our customers." About Menlo Security Menlo Security protects organizations from cyberattacks by eliminating the threat of malware from the web, documents, and email. Menlo Security's patented Isolation-powered cloud security platform scales to provide comprehensive protection across enterprises of any size, without requiring endpoint software or impacting the end user-experience. Menlo Security is trusted by major global businesses, including Fortune 500 companies, eight of the ten largest global financial services institutions, and large governmental institutions. The company is backed by Vista Equity Partners, Neuberger Berman, General Catalyst, American Express Ventures, Ericsson Ventures, HSBC, and JPMorgan Chase. Menlo Security is headquartered in Mountain View, California. For more information, please visit www.menlosecurity.com.
