Cybersecurity startup SafeBreach has raised $4 million in its first round of funding led by Sequoia Capital with additional funding from serial entrepreneur investor Shlomo Kramer, according to reports.
Israel-based SafeBreach will reportedly use the funding to expand development in Israel and extend its reach into North America. Founded by veterans of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Guy Bejerano and Itzik Kotler, SafeBreach says it takes the view of the hacker, generating attack simulations across an organization’s systems to identify security holes allowing the organization to preemptively close them.
“Get the hacker’s point of view – anywhere in the system a hacker may attack; including the network, cloud, endpoints, and mobile,” the SafeBreach site states.
“The company has developed an especially innovative solution for organizational security risk management. While the market for security threats have been replete with innovation in recent years, the risk management field is relatively static. SafeBreach has therefore woken up a sleepy market and is defining a new category,” Kramer was quoted in Globes as stating.
