Silent Push nets $10m seed round for its innovative cyber threat detection platform

Silent Push, a detection-focused threat intelligence firm, has emerged on the market with an impressive total of $10m in seed funding.

This significant financial backing has been spearheaded by Ten Eleven Ventures, a global investor known for specialising in the cybersecurity sector. This seed funding round amasses a total of $10m, providing Silent Push with a solid foundation to make its mark in the industry.

Silent Push offers an innovative approach to identifying cyber threats. Its unique methodology involves comprehensive scrutiny of internet-facing infrastructure around the world, combined with deep analysis to reveal fresh attacker infrastructure and campaigns. This enables customers to preemptively comprehend emerging threats and proactively address them.

Silent Push plans to utilise this funding to enhance its threat intelligence capabilities. The focus is on understanding attacker tactics prior to an attack, providing an in-depth analysis of the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) utilised by threat actors. With this information at their disposal, organisations can gain insight into potential targets and attackers’ capabilities, positioning Silent Push as a vital radar in detecting threats.

Silent Push’s services can be used independently or integrated into commonly used security tools such as SIEM via an API. The company’s unique selling point lies in its ability to determine what attackers are doing in preparation for an attack or campaign. This was demonstrated recently when attackers were observed using legitimate websites to redirect to threat actor-controlled ‘cushion servers’, leading to phishing URLs with fake Microsoft logins.

The company’s leadership comprises Ken Bagnall, CEO, and John Jensen, CTO. Both individuals are esteemed co-founders, having worked together for over 15 years, most recently at FireEye, Inc., which acquired their former company, The Email Laundry.

Quotes from the company’s leadership paint a clearer picture of Silent Push’s strategic direction. Ken Bagnall, CEO of Silent Push, said, “Our unique ability lies in knowing the attacker’s TTPs – what they are doing to prepare for an attack or campaign.”

The newly launched company has already garnered a significant following, with over 500 organisations using the free community edition of its product, while the Enterprise edition is being used by some of the world’s largest organisations.
