Discern Security unveils AI-backed security policy platform with $3m boost


Discern Security has announced its arrival with the launch of the world’s first AI-powered security policy management platform.

Having secured a $3m seed funding round, the firm is set to amplify the performance of cybersecurity tools utilised by businesses while simultaneously cultivating relationships with Fortune 500 enterprises and other cybersecurity companies.

In the wake of international entities pouring over $150bn into cybersecurity efforts the previous year, and as cyberattacks inflict trillions in annual damages, the imperative for advanced cybersecurity solutions has never been clearer. Addressing this mounting concern, Discern Security’s foray into the market is timely and bolstered by the financial support it recently garnered.

The seed funding round enjoyed the backing of a varied group of investors including BoldCap, WestWave Capital, Cyber Mentor Fund, and Security Syndicate. Moreover, a number of Global Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) were among the significant contributors, highlighting the vast potential Discern Security offers to the cybersecurity realm.

Founded in 2023 by experienced entrepreneurs Sai Venkataraman, Santhosh Purathepparmbil, and Rohan Puri, the company is on a mission to revolutionise the cybersecurity sector using AI. Designated as a “Policy Intelligence Hub”, Discern Security utilises AI to continuously oversee and enhance security measures across a broad range of cybersecurity tools.

Their avant-garde method promotes the creation of an integrated cybersecurity framework, ensuring effortless compatibility among varied security solutions.

Discern Security’s platform caters to three primary industry challenges. Firstly, it enables businesses to derive maximum value from their security investments. Secondly, it addresses the prevalent scarcity of cybersecurity expertise by managing the operational aspects, thus allowing teams to centre their efforts on strategic ventures. Finally, it simplifies the often intricate configuration of standalone security products, simultaneously boosting security and productivity levels.

Their Policy Intelligence Hub is designed to empower organisations to effectively visualise and adjust their security configurations, guaranteeing consistent dynamic policy management across their entire suite of cybersecurity tools.

Breaking away from traditional isolated security solutions, Discern Security introduces an AI-integrated, interconnected approach. This inclusion of AI provides businesses the capability to efficiently allocate their security resources whilst strengthening their defences against sophisticated cyber threats.

Discern Security CEO Sai Venkataraman said, “The cybersecurity landscape demands perpetual innovation and fine-tuning, and our team at Discern Security is resolutely committed to ushering in a paradigm shift. With our platform, businesses gain the advantage of a comprehensive security strategy that not only mitigates risks but also optimises their security investments. Our mission is to deliver world-class cybersecurity solutions transcending geographical boundaries, safeguarding organisations worldwide.”
