ThreatStream

CEO: Greg Martin

Redwood City, Calif.-based ThreatStream developed the SaaS-based Optic platform to map relationships between adversaries and targets and provide the threat intelligence data to support risk management decisions. Company founder and CEO Greg Martin announced in February a $4 million Series A funding round led by Google Ventures. ThreatStream hired Jason Trost, formerly a senior software engineer at security intelligence and analytics firm Endgame, as its senior analytics engineer. The goal is to build out the platform to provide real-time awareness of targeted attacks by analyzing unstructured data, such as chat activity in underground hacking forums with malware and threat indicators.
