CEO: Eran Barak

San Francisco-based startup Hexadite emerged out of stealth mode with an incident response platform that it says eliminates false positives to give responders the ability to investigate high-risk threats. The goal is to reduce manual intervention with its Automated Incident Response Solution (AIRS), which manages alerts from security systems by validating them and automatically remediating low-level threats. The company said it recently received an initial $2.5 million seed investment. Hexadite was founded by former military intelligence officers and private sector security experts. The platform can operate in fully automated or semi-automated mode. Hexadite CEO Eran Barak said organizations need to address broken response process by identifying and documenting the most efficient way to prioritize and address alerts and automating some of the steps to boost efficiency.
