AttackIQ, a San Diego, CA-based provider of continuous security validation solutions, raised $17.6m in Series B funding.
The round, which brought total funding to approximately $35m, was led by Khosla Ventures with participation from existing investors Index Ventures, Salesforce Ventures and Telstra Ventures. Brian Byun, partner of Khosla Ventures, has joined AttackIQ’s board of directors.
The company will use the funds to continue to develop its continuous security validation platform, increase hiring across all functional areas and further expand field operations.
Led by Brett Galloway, CEO, AttackIQ provides a continuous security validation platform that enables red and blue teams to test and measure the effectiveness of their security controls and staff. With an open platform, the system supports the MITRE ATT&CK framework, a curated knowledge base and model for cyber adversary behavior used for planning security improvements and verifying defenses work as expected.
The platform is used by companies around the world.
