ZecOps receives $10.2m in seed funding

ZecOps, a digital forensics and incident response (DFIR) service, has received $10.2m in a seed funding round.

The investment was backed by CEAS Investments, Evolution Equity Partners, KPN Ventures, Plug and Play Ventures and Stormbreaker Venture Group. A number of unnamed angel investors also took part.

Proceeds from the round will be used to grow its team globally and extend its reach.

San Francisco-based Zec Ops enables automtic detection, analysis and response to cyberattacks. Its technology monitors and deciphers attacks on endpoints, servers and mobile devices by leveraging attackers’ mistakes.

By understanding the mistakes of an attacker, it can discover the course of action and objectives of the campaign, burn threat actors exploits and increase attackers’ costs.

Its software can also be integrated into IoT, ATM and point of sales devices.

ZecOps CEO and co-founder Zuk Avraham said, “Since our inception in 2017, our mission has been to detect attackers’ mistakes that go unnoticed by all the other defense controls and hence to provide organizations with an immediate view on who is targeted, which assets are already infected and automatically generate threat intelligence on the attacks.

“We’re not trying to solve everything – we provide a realistic approach to combating against advanced attackers and CISOs love it! This past year has demonstrated an overwhelming demand.”

The cybersecurity company closed its seed round last year on $3.5m. KPN Ventures served as lead investor and additional support came from Evolution Equity Partners, Plug and Play Silicon Valley, WISE Ventures, Array Ventures and angel backers.
