Cynamics raises $7 million to bring AI-driven Network Detection and Response to North America
BOSTON, Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Israeli AI-driven Next Generation (NG) Network Detection and Response (NDR) startup Cynamics has raised $7 million led by Marius Nacht, Checkpoint Software Technologies co-founder and one of Israel's leading serial entrepreneurs, tech founders and investors, with the participation of Colibri Technologies and Fantail Ventures. The company is establishing a new headquarters in Boston, which will lead expansion in the U.S. and serve over 80 North American customers to date.
Cynamics developed the world's first cybersecurity solution based on network samples. It collects small network samples (less than 1%) from the main network gateways and uses unique patented AI technology to infer how the full network (100%) behaves and to predict attacks and threats long before they hit. Once a threat is predicted, the customer gets a complete attack story based on auto-drill-down from the gateways through the network assets down to specific compromised endpoints. The solution triggers instantaneous action, enabling immediate and automatic mitigation.
The copany has laid the foundation for a leadership position in the North American cybersecurity space, including:
Eyal Elyashiv, co-founder and CEO, Cynamics, said: "Changing trends in networking architectures and the impact of the pandemic make networking infrastructures into complex, distributed topologies, which challenge network detection and response. As a result, CISOs are forced to compromise and monitor only a limited part of the network. This creates blind spots that result in security breaches. Cynamics offers a new paradigm that provides full network coverage based on analyzing only 1% of traffic and the ability to detect attacks and threats with highest possible precision. Moreover, our solution predicts threats minutes before existing tools can – a critical time frame that can be the difference between smooth remediation and millions of dollars in recovery."
Ophir Shoham, former Director of Defense R&D Directorate at the Israeli Ministry of Defense (MAFAT) who manages Marius Nacht's investments in high-tech said: "Cynamics developed a very unique technology, which is network agnostic and easy to adopt, allowing the company to reach a wide variety of customers quickly and positioning it as a next generation NG NDR leader. Cynamics has the right ingredients to build a great company: strong team, proven innovative technology, huge market and a real need for the solution that the company offers."
