Cybersecurity Startup CYR3CON closes $1.5M Seed Round

The artificial intelligence powered cybersecurity startup CYR3CON has completed a $1.5M seed round financing led by New York-based Scout Ventures.

Many cyber attacks such as NotPetya spread through larger enterprises in seconds – leaving security teams scrambling. To address this need, CYR3CON combines artificial intelligence and information from malicious hacking communities to predict cyberattacks. For example, CYR3CON’s solution automatically scouts the hacker communities and uses machine learning to help prioritize vulnerabilities that hackers most intend to use in an attack. CYR3CON gained notoriety with predictions concerning several major attacks – including WannaCry and NotPetya – receiving coverage by CNN and The Economist.
