CyberTech Censys scores $35m in Series B

Censys, a provider of continuous attack surface management, has scored $35m in its Series B funding round.

Intel Capital, the investment division of technology giant Intel, served as the lead investor, with commitments also coming from Google Ventures, Decibel and Greylock Partners.

Capital from the round will help Censys accelerate its R&D, engineering, product and sales operations.

To support its growth, former OneLogin CEO Brad Brooks has joined Censys as its new CEO. In this position Brooks will support Censys’ next growth phase and accelerate its product roadmap to offer more asset discovery and self-service capabilities.

Censys’s mission is to supply attack surface management tools so organisations can easily manage their internet-facing assets and risks, regardless of host location. This includes discovering previously unknown internet assets.

Its technology continuously discovers organisations’ internet assets and monitors them as part of a comprehensive inventory, identifies egregious security issues and prevents oversights from becoming vulnerabilities.

Brooks said, “Censys has created a stellar attack surface management platform that organisations view as a security problem solver. This industry leadership is reflected in the significant triple digit annual recurring revenue growth it has experienced year over year and the organisations it calls customers, including Google and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“I’m excited to join Censys as we begin this exciting new chapter and help bring more innovative capabilities to this rapidly growing attack surface management marketplace.”

Brooks has over 25 years of experience in management teams, working at DocuSign, Juniper Networks and Microsoft.

Censys previously raised $15.5m in its Series A funding round back in August 2020. Contributions to the round came from GV, Decibel and Greylock Partners.
