Venture funding continues to flow this week, with extended detection and response (XDR) firm Cynet adding $40 million to its coffers via a Series C funding round led by Greenfield Partners.
Founded in 2015, Cynet offers an autonomous XDR platform designed to help organizations of all sizes detect threats and respond to incidents by automating monitoring, attack prevention and detection, and response orchestration capabilities. Dubbed Cynet 360, the platform leverages sensors that continuously collect and analyze endpoint, file, user, and network activity across the customer’s entire environment.
According to the company, the added funding will be used to support growth and maintain its expansion in the North American and European markets.
Cynet’s platform is backed by a 24/7 Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service that is included for all clients at no extra cost, an attractive proposition for smaller security teams.
The Series C funding round also had participation from existing investors Norwest Venture Partners, Vintage Investment Partners, BlueRed Partners and Deutsche Telekom.
