Cyberpion has raised $8.25 million for ecosystem security
The funding round was led by Team8 Capital and Hyperwise Ventures. With this seed funding, the company will try to boost sales and marketing efforts, and accelerate development of its platform.

Cyberpion’s platform can be used to identify and neutralize threats that come from vulnerability in online assets throughout an organization’s connected ecosystem.

“Following rapid growth in both research and development as well as winning new customers that include Fortune 500 companies, we are excited to emerge from stealth and champion the rising ecosystem security sector,” said Cyberpion founder and CEO Nethanel Gelernter. “We appreciate Team8 Capital and Hyperwise Ventures’ recognition that cybersecurity needs to extend well beyond the enterprise’s own assets and perimeter, leveraging a more agile and proactive approach that is critical to protecting against far-reaching ecosystem attacks. Cyberpion looks forward to a close partnership with these two leading venture firms.”

CrowdStrike Falcon Zero Trust Assessment (ZTA) now available
CrowdStrike ZTA provides real-time security assessments across all endpoints in an organization, regardless of the location, network, or user. It allows for enforcement of conditional access based on device health and compliance checks, which helps mitigate security risks. 

“There is a massive blind spot in many of today’s Zero Trust security technologies that only focus on user authentication and do not take into account device health. Endpoint security is one of the foundational building blocks of Zero Trust,” said Amol Kulkarni, chief product officer at CrowdStrike. “With CrowdStrike Falcon ZTA we are providing the missing link to implement Zero Trust security, leveraging the power of the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to deliver complete protection through verified access control to business data and applications. Additionally, with the acquisition of Preempt Security, CrowdStrike has combined industry-leading workload security with identity protection to seamlessly deliver end-to-end Zero Trust conditional access for our customers.”
