SnapAttack was spun out from Booz Allen Hamilton in 2021 and in November closed a $8 million seed funding round led by Volition Capital to help organizations proactively identify potential vulnerabilities, risks, and gaps in their infrastructure before an incident occurs. The Washington D.C.-based company employed 14 people in November when it was established as a standalone entity, according to LinkedIn.
The company combines offensive and defensive tradecraft to identify security gaps and improve advanced behavioral detections, integrating across SIEM, EDR/XDR, and cloud offerings. SnapAttack’s security platform is focused on attack emulation, detection-as-code and continuous development and validation of robust behavioral analytics.
With the funding, SnapAttack plans to accelerate platform development to further integrate across security operations processes, manage the entire lifecycle of detection analytics, and enhance reporting. In addition, the company plans to drive additional threat intelligence and analytic content types into the platform to create the most robust and comprehensive detections with minimal human interaction.
