ZecOps, the first agentless automated Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) & APT detection platform, announced today that it has closed a total of $10.2 million seed funding round with participation from CEAS Investments, Evolution Equity Partners, KPN Ventures, Plug and Play Ventures, Stormbreaker Venture Group and highly reputable Information Security angel investors. ZecOps will use the investment to further advance its platform, grow the team globally and expand the company’s business reach.

ZecOps ground-breaking patent-pending technology enables automated detection, analysis, and response of sophisticated attacks that are crafted to evade security controls. ZecOps APT detection & DFIR platform discovers and analyzes attacks on endpoints, servers, and mobile devices by leveraging attackers’ mistakes. ZecOps technology is also suitable for IOT, ATMs and Point of Sales (POS) without requiring device recertification and can distinguish between IT / DevOps events and cyber security incidents. All ZecOps solutions are agentless, take only a few minutes to deploy at scale and operate without prerequisites.

“We have been very impressed with ZecOps’ capability to automate security breach detection, analysis and response for the most commonly used operating systems,” said Herman Kienhuis, EVP and Managing Director at KPN Ventures. “We see great potential in enabling more organizations to learn from attacks, generate new threat intelligence and substantially improve their security posture. The traction that ZecOps has generated in the past year following our initial investment, while being still in stealth mode, is very promising. We look forward to continue our partnership with the company to help it achieve its ambitious goals.”

“Since our inception in 2017, our mission has been to detect attackers’ mistakes that go unnoticed by all the other defense controls and hence to provide organizations with an immediate view on who is targeted, which assets are already infected and automatically generate threat intelligence on the attacks,” said Zuk Avraham, ZecOps CEO and Co-Founder. “We’re not trying to solve everything – we provide a realistic approach to combating against advanced attackers and CISOs love it! This past year has demonstrated an overwhelming demand.”

“We have already secured over twenty partnerships. ZecOps platform is commercially available and deployed in Tier-1 enterprises, carriers, banks, governments as well as defense entities in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific,” added Zuk Avraham. “This enabled us to detect various APTs in multiple organizations. We are thrilled by our investors’, partners’ and customers’ vote of confidence and the possibilities offered through this funding.”

“Since we started a couple of years ago, we have built a great team and the results quickly followed,” said Taly Slachevsky, ZecOps COO and Co-Founder. “Each and every single individual on our team is amazing and everyone makes the difference. I’m proud to be part of ZecOps and looking forward to continue executing on our vision to help organizations globally.”

Zuk Avraham, ZecOps Co-Founder, has a proven track record in successfully launching cyber security companies such as Zimperium, the multi-award winning leading Mobile Threat Defense company. ZecOps’ core team is comprised of highly skilled and experienced cyber security veterans. ZecOps is headquartered in San Francisco and has offices in Tel Aviv, Buenos Aires, Singapore and London.
