With the fresh funding, Cyclops intends to increase its scale to meet the demands from its growing customer base. They plan to recruit additional developers to maintain product innovation and broaden capabilities. Also, the funds will be utilised to enhance its go-to-market strategy.

Security teams can use natural language queries to gain vital insights about their environment and address vulnerabilities, security incidents, and governance, risk and compliance scenarios.

Cyclops CEO Eran Zilberman said, “Today, organisations struggle to find answers to the most complex questions across the tools in their security stack, and get simple answers on business impact. With Cyclops, these days are over. Our main purpose is to empower security teams to proactively defend against cyber threats and prioritise addressing critical vulnerabilities with the necessary contextual data.”

According to previous funding data, this $6.4m seed round is the first publicly announced investment in Cyclops.
