Right-Hand Cybersecurity, a firm focused on human risk management for cybersecurity, has scored $5m in a Series A funding round.
The round was led by former PayPal executive Jack Selby and Arizonan venture capital business AZ-VC.
Right-Hand claims it takes a human-centered approach to cybersecurity that improves employee behaviours in real-time that are otherwise prone to cascade potentially devastating cybersecurity breaches.
Right-Hand’s Human Risk Management platform aggregates employee security behaviours and alerts in real-time from its existing platform, and other market leading Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR), Email Security and Identity and Access Management (IAM) technologies and assigns different behaviours a risk score that can be easily interpreted among key stakeholders to gain visibility into employee risk in plain business terms.
The firm’s platform then analyses the collated employee data to generate real-time interactive and adaptive training that enables individuals to master cybersecurity behaviours that keep their organizations and themselves safer online.
Right-Hand plans to continue expanding its platform integrations across the most commonly adopted technologies in their customers’ environments to help the data from each disparate product play a key role in improving employee behaviours and lowering their risk tendencies.
The company claims it will expand its operations across the U.S. and Asia-Pacific while investing heavily in its Human Risk Management platform that efficiently integrates with other commonly adopted and relied upon security solutions.
Right-Hand CEO and founder Theo Nasser said, “What differentiates Right-Hand is that we go beyond just ‘checking the box’ for improving user behaviours to reduce cybersecurity risks. We provide an ongoing overview of employee risk profiles, and tailor learning materials specifically to individual behaviours to help reduce security alerts that inundate the Security Operation Center (SOC) – a radical departure from the ‘one size fits all’ security awareness approach that’s become the unfortunate norm in this space. Right-Hand and our customers see this as the future for human layer security.”
Britive, a cloud identity security platform, has secured $20.5m in a Series B funding round headed by Pelion Venture Partners.
