CEO: Lior Div
Funding: A $275 million Series F round of “crossover financing”
Investors: The round was led by Liberty Strategic Capital (whose founder and managing partner is former Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin) with additional backing from Irving Investors, certain funds advised by Neuberger Berman Investment Advisers LLC and Softbank Vision Fund 2.
What the company does: The company develops the Cybereason Defense Platform, operation-centric cyberattack protection software.
CEO Quote: “Over the past year, we’ve experienced hypergrowth across the globe as defenders recognize that ending advanced attacks isn’t possible using solutions that rely on meaningless alerts and human intervention. Existing—even ‘next-gen’ –solutions are fundamentally flawed, creating the dynamic we have today where the defender is constantly struggling to keep pace with attackers. Unlike our prolific alert-generating competitors, Cybereason takes an approach that enables defenders to end malicious operations instantly, resulting in the most comprehensive prevention, detection and response solution on the market.”
