E8 Security, a Redwood City, CA-based behavioral intelligence platform for cybersecurity, closed a $12m Series B funding round.
The round was led by Strategic Cyber Ventures with participation from March Capital Partners, Allegis Capital, and The Hive.
The company, which has raised $21.8m in total funding to date, will use the capital for continued innovation of its platform, as well as to accelerate go-to-market and sales execution efforts.
Led by Matt Jones, CEO, E8 Security has developed a behavioral intelligence platform that can measure an organization’s risk to a data breach and identify the early warnings signs when critical resources are being targeted. The platform takes an ‘inside-to-outside’ view, with lateral movement modeling of user and endpoint activities in addition to network traffic patterns originating from within an organization’s perimeter, to identify the various stages of threat activity inside the network. Its self-learning, multi-dimensional behavioral analytics examines all user, endpoint and network activities, and provides a comprehensive view of unknown threat indicators within the organization.
