Cybersecurity pioneer Invary attracts $1.85m in pre-seed funding

Invary, a cybersecurity trailblazer centred on identifying concealed malware and stopping expensive ransomware attacks, has successfully amassed pre-seed funding to propel its ground-breaking solution.

The company garnered a total of $1.85m in a pre-seed funding round led by Flyover Capital. NetWork Kansas GROWKS Equity programme and the KU Innovation Park also invested in the firm.

Focusing on the cybersecurity landscape, Invary provides a pioneering service known as Runtime Integrity, intended to discover and neutralise hidden threats that evade modern threat detection systems. Their approach allows organisations to strengthen their security stance and proactively protect their digital space from impactful attacks.

The funding will be used to launch Invary’s flagship Runtime Integrity service, expected to debut this summer. This service promises to empower organisations, enabling them to bolster their security positions and proactively defend their digital environments against high-impact attacks.

Invary’s leadership team, composed of seasoned experts in Trusted Computing research, brings decades of operational expertise to the table. The team is helmed by CEO Jason Rogers, who has extensive experience in building secure cloud-scale platforms and scaling engineering and operations at industry leader Matterport through its IPO. The firm’s security credentials are further enhanced by founder Dr. Perry Alexander, a distinguished authority in Trusted Computing research, and his protege Dr. Wesley Peck, the CTO of Invary.

Invary’s exclusive technology, underpinned by an intellectual property grant from the NSA, is designed to be an integral part of a “trust nothing” Zero Trust architecture. It aims to bridge a critical security gap in organisations by continuously validating the operating system’s integrity, thus providing superior protection and eliminating unnecessary monitoring data.

Tenfold Security CEO Jon Broek said, “Invary Runtime Integrity gives us an unfair advantage over the competition when deployed with our security solutions for cloud and virtual machines. It also provides a key component of keeping our customers secured end to end and preventing things like ransomware that are highly targeting our core customers in higher education.”

Invary CEO Jason Rogers said, “We are thrilled to have secured this pre-seed funding, as it validates the need for Invary’s novel technology to shore up existing cyber defences against high-impact hidden threats. With the support of our investors, customers, and partners, we are well-positioned to advance our mission of fortifying the security ecosystem by reinforcing Zero Trust principles.”
