StrikeReady secures $12m in Series A for AI-driven cyber Innovation


StrikeReady, an innovative early-stage startup based in Palo Alto, California, has successfully raised $12m in a Series A funding round.

According to Security Week, founded with the vision to modernize cybersecurity command centers, the company is pioneering the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance security operations centers (SOCs). The funding was led by 33N Ventures, with significant contributions from Hitachi Ventures, Monta Vista Capital, and several influential cybersecurity executives.

At its core, StrikeReady is committed to redefining how SOCs operate. By leveraging AI technologies, the company aims to simplify the complexities prevalent in SOC environments. This includes streamlining and automating routine tasks, which are often time-consuming and prone to error. StrikeReady’s approach involves moving beyond traditional AI and large language model (LLM) applications. Instead, it has developed a proprietary large action model (LAM) that proactively takes actions across the technology stack based on user prompts, marking a significant leap in the field of cybersecurity.

The company plans to utilize the new funding to further its mission of transforming cloud-based security operations. StrikeReady’s innovative security operations and management platform is designed to assist security teams by integrating and operationalizing a variety of security products. This unified approach not only enhances the defense against threats but also ensures a swift response to incidents. By combining AI, data, and automation, StrikeReady addresses some of the most pressing challenges in modernizing security operations: understanding the capabilities of diverse cybersecurity products, mitigating the cybersecurity talent shortage, and improving collaboration among teams.

“StrikeReady remains at the forefront of advancing beyond traditional AI and large language model (LLM) to a proprietary large action model (LAM), which takes actions across the technology stack based on a user’s prompts,” said Yasir Khalid, the former engineering lead and architect at FireEye who now leads StrikeReady.

Previously, StrikeReady had raised a total of $15.6m since its inception in April 2021. This includes the current funding round and an earlier venture, demonstrating the confidence and excitement surrounding its approach to revolutionizing cybersecurity.
