Cymulate | September 07, 2022

Cymulate, the market leader in Extended Security Posture Management (XSPM), today announced a $70 million Series D investment led by existing investors One Peak, together with Susquehanna Growth Equity (SGE), Vertex Ventures Israel, Vertex Growth and Dell Technologies Capital. Cymulate has raised $141M to date. The latest investment, which is among the largest for continuous security testing vendors, doubles Cymulate's funding raised to date and accelerates the Company's global expansion and pace of innovation. In a recent report on Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) GartnerⓇ analysts observed, "Previous approaches to managing the attack surface are no longer keeping up with digital velocity — in an age where organizations can't fix everything, nor can they be completely sure what vulnerability remediation can be safely postponed. CTEM is a pragmatic and effective systemic approach to continuously refine priorities, walking the tightrope between those two impossible extremes."* The global shortage of 2.72 million cybersecurity professionals, and overstretched in-house security resources further exacerbates the need for Cymulate's real-world solutions which closes security gaps quickly and efficiently, rationalizes technology, helps upskill staff and improves processes. "We are thrilled to lead this round of investment in Cymulate," said David Klein, Managing Partner of One Peak. "Cyber posture management and continuous security validation have dramatically increased in popularity in response to the onslaught of ransomware and cyber warfare for businesses across all size ranges. Cymulate is the clear leader in the sector, and we look forward to continuing to support the Company in further accelerating its already strong growth trajectory." Cymulate sets the industry standard for organizations to use automation to continuously validate their threat exposure and cyber posture, by testing their cloud and on-premise networks against the latest threats in the wild. The Company's Extended Security Posture Management platform leverages its native offensive security technology and capabilities to widely support customers' security and business needs. XSPM incorporates four fundamental pillars tied together with analytics to provide actionable security posture insights: Attack Surface Management, Continuous Automated Red Teaming, Breach & Attack Simulation, and Advanced Purple Teaming. Cymulate's customers see their cyber risk reduced by nearly 50% during the first three months of use. Running daily risk assessments, the cyber risk of Cymulate's customers continues to decrease in the first year without any security drift. The Series D funding will be used to extend Cymulate's technological capabilities and further accelerate its global growth. The Company more than doubled its ARR in 2021 and grew more than 200% in North America alone. Cymulate has more than 500 customers globally, including Fortune 500 companies and strategic partners such as Optiv and Wipro. By the end of this year, Cymulate plans to further expand its staff by 75% to continue supporting its go-to-market efforts. "In a market where every business must be prepared to fight advanced threats, I am proud of our team's ability to innovate and respond quickly to the constant turbulence of cybersecurity. "Our funding from existing investors is a further testament to their confidence in our company, direction, and continued vision. We look forward to reaching our next innovation milestones and expanding into new markets across the globe."

iboss Achieves FedRAMP Authorization for its Zero Trust Edge Cloud Security Solution

iboss, Inc. | July 29, 2022

iboss, the leading Zero Trust Edge cloud security provider, announces that it has obtained Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Authorization. The achievement is reflective of the company’s commitment to work alongside federal agencies to protect government entities and civilians from growing and increasingly sophisticated cyberthreats. Earlier this year, the United States Office of Management and Budget unveiled a strategy designed to prevent damaging hacks and breaches by moving federal agencies toward a zero trust cybersecurity approach. The announcement followed a 2021 Biden Administration executive order aimed at protecting federal networks by modernizing government cybersecurity, including through the implementation of zero trust security architecture as defined in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The iboss platform is a purpose-built, patented, cloud delivered security solution that has been trusted by organizations worldwide to implement Zero Trust architecture as laid out specifically in the NIST 800-207 Special Publication. The company’s containerized cloud architecture makes it the only platform that can control what NIST refers to as the “Implicit Trust Zone” to ensure that all data and resources are completely private. The FedRAMP authorization now extends iboss’s leading platform to all U.S. government customers. “Our Zero Trust Edge platform prevents breaches by making applications and data inaccessible to attackers while allowing trusted users to securely and directly connect to resources from anywhere. “In today’s work-from-anywhere world, protecting sensitive information, regardless of who is accessing it or where, is critical. We look forward to continuing to extend our platform and expertise to U.S. government agencies.” iboss CEO Paul Martini A Zero Trust Architecture built on iboss consolidates network security technologies (SWG, CASB, DLP, IPS, malware defense, browser isolation, firewall) into a single unified cloud platform and eliminates the need for a VPN while securing any device, regardless of location. By making all applications private, iboss eliminates the top three initial ransomware infection vectors as identified by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). With applications, data and services made accessible only through the iboss Zero Trust Edge, cyber risk is greatly reduced, breaches and data loss are prevented, and visibility and security are delivered consistently throughout an organization. FedRAMP is a US government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
