Cyph, a McLean, VA-based cybersecurity startup, raised $500k in seed funding.
Backers included CIT and Goel Fund.
The company intends to use the funds to continue developing its core cybersecurity technology while expanding their go-to-market strategies and staff.
Co-founded by CEO Ryan Lester, and COO Josh Boehm, who participated in MACH37 Cyber Accelerator’s Fall 2014 class, Cyph is a messaging solution for both consumers and enterprises, offering a feature set that includes file transfers, voice/video calling, and post-quantum end-to-end encryption.
It allows businesses to integrate with their own products through the Cyph API and/or deploy internally — for which the Cyph team is currently seeking pilot customers.
