Rapid7 and Veracode research receive funding for cyber threats startup
New England Council members, Rapid7 and Veracode, have developed a team to begin a vulnerability intelligence startup, VulnCheck. VulnCheck recently announced a $3.2 million seed funding round with participants such as Sorenson Ventures and In-Q-Tel, in addition to angel funding from Dave Cole (co-founder and CEO of Open Rowen) and Oliver Friedrichs (founder and CEO of Pangea).
VulnCheck plans to help provide companies, government agencies, and other cybersecurity providers with cyber threat and vulnerability intelligence, allowing them to maintain higher levels of security. The startup hopes to use the new funding to bolster team and product development.
“Our team’s mission is to autonomously gather and leverage exploit and vulnerability intelligence to manage the world’s vulnerabilities at scale,” said Anthony Bettini, team leader at VulnCheck. “The investments we’ve secured show strong confidence in our vision. We are thrilled to be working with these strategic partners to fuel our next stage of growth.”
The New England Council would like to congratulate Rapid7 and Veracode for partnering up to develop this new startup.
