Security Operations and Management Startup StrikeReady Emerges From Stealth
Cloud-based security operations and management startup StrikeReady this week emerged from stealth mode after raising $3.6 million in seed funding.
Led by 11.2 Capital, the funding round also saw participation from Outlier Venture Capital and from various Silicon Valley angel investors.
Palo Alto, California-based StrikeReady says it will use the infusion of funds to accelerate go-to-market and sales, as well as to expand its research and development team.
StrikeReady’s team includes mostly early timers from FireEye and is led by Yasir Khalid, former engineering lead and architect at FireEye.
The company has developed a security operations and management platform that is designed to help security teams by bringing together and operationalizing disparate security products.
Through combining artificial intelligence with data and automation, the company aims to help customers defend against threats and quickly respond to incidents.
The company says its solution can tackle some of the key issues to modernize security operations, namely the struggle to understand the granular capabilities of multiple cybersecurity products, the shortage of cybersecurity talent, and problems related to collaboration between teams.
“Our vision is to take a human-centered approach to make the security team effective and exceptionally efficient, while transforming all the cybersecurity analysts to be an expert, and without off-the-job training,” said Yasir Khalid, founder and CEO of StrikeReady.
