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.
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.

ZeroFox (Nasdaq: ZFOX), an enterprise software-as-a-service leader in external cybersecurity, highlights its recent contributions to the OWASP Amass Project in an ongoing effort to give businesses and government entities better visibility to their full external attack surface asset ecosystem. The recent additions to the project from the ZeroFox team provide more advanced tool sets for analysts to discover and catalog their internet-facing assets and exposures. The contributions create a new standard framework to lead the industry in a more cohesive approach to attack surface management.
As organizations face increasingly sophisticated cyber threats, understanding and managing their external attack surface has become paramount. By leveraging its expertise in external cybersecurity, ZeroFox identified a critical gap in the attack surface management landscape and responded by spearheading the development of the Open Asset Model and Asset Database within the OWASP Amass Project.
The Open Asset Model and Asset Database contributions offer security analysts a unified and structured approach to identifying and managing potential vulnerabilities outside the perimeter. The Open Asset Model provides a new standard for asset definitions, representing a comprehensive framework for describing and categorizing diverse internet-facing assets. The Amass community can quickly adapt the model to include new types of assets exposed on the Internet, and their relationships to each other, for more accurate discovery, tracking, monitoring, and management. The Asset Database implements this model, offering the database interaction layer to store discovered assets in the popular sqlite3 and PostgreSQL database management systems. The Asset Database will foster the development of an ecosystem of scanning and analysis tools, allowing them to store and analyze assets from the Open Asset Model and their relationships.
These contributions directly benefit both existing Amass users and the broader attack surface management community in an effort to standardize asset definitions. The new standards now provide the information security community with a consistent and predictable format when transferring data describing external attack surfaces.
"We are thrilled to contribute to the OWASP Amass Project and provide the security community with cutting-edge tools for Attack Surface Management," said Jeff Foley, VP of Research at ZeroFox. "By leveraging the power of open source, we aim to expand access to advanced cybersecurity capabilities, helping organizations proactively defend against emerging threats."
These engineering contributions represent a continued commitment by ZeroFox to the open source community, OWASP, and the Amass Project. ZeroFox will continue to contribute to the Amass Project in an effort to enable the discovery, management, and protection of the external attack surface. By sharing its expertise and resources, ZeroFox aims to foster collaboration and innovation within the information security community, ultimately making the digital landscape safer for all users.
ZeroFox (Nasdaq: ZFOX), an enterprise software-as-a-service leader in external cybersecurity, has redefined security outside the corporate perimeter on the internet, where businesses operate, and threat actors thrive. The ZeroFox platform combines advanced AI analytics, digital risk and privacy protection, full-spectrum threat intelligence, and a robust portfolio of breach, incident and takedown response capabilities to expose and disrupt phishing and fraud campaigns, botnet exposures, credential theft, impersonations, data breaches, and physical threats that target your brands, domains, people, and assets. Join thousands of customers, including some of the largest public sector organizations as well as finance, media, technology and retail companies to stay ahead of adversaries and address the entire lifecycle of external cyber risks.
