HackSurfer, a Glenelg, Md.-based cyber risk intelligence provider, raised $3.5m in equity financing.
The company intends to use the funds to build out the marketing and sales functions and introduce its products to customers globally.
Founded in 2012 by Rebekah and Jason Polancich, HackSurfer has developed a risk intelligence content and analytics engine that continuously monitors millions of the web and social media sources for cybercrime data and reports what it learns in a standardized representation.
The company’s engine is accessible via an API (www.hacksurfer.com/api), which organizations and security product vendors can leverage to integrate with their own products or environments.
The web site also features a community where security professionals can collaborate and share information to drive further awareness and intelligence.
