UK-Based Threat Detection Firm SenseOn Raises $20 Million
SenseOn, a UK-based threat detection company, today announced that it has raised $20 million in Series A funding to scale its AI-based cybersecurity platform business.
Founded in 2017 by David Atkinson, the company explains that its “AI Triangulation” technology emulates how human security analysts think and acts to automate the process of threat detection, investigation and response.
Before moving to the commercial side of cybersecurity world, Atkinson spent more than 15 years working within the UK’s specialist military units where he was the first cyber operative.
By combining detection and response capabilities across traditionally siloed security domains, SenseOn says its platform proactively detects and shuts down external threats and malicious insiders, while increasing the efficiency of security teams.
According to the company, the additional capital will help support R&D and scale its go-to-market team.
The Series A round was led by Eight Roads Ventures and was supported by existing investors MMC Ventures, Crane Venture Partners and Winton Ventures Limited.
