Cybellum, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based zero-day prevention platform, raised $2.5m in seed funding.
The round was led by Blumberg Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its expansion, including opening a U.S. office in 2017, and to further its research and development efforts.
Founded in 2015 by Slava Bronfman and Michael Engstler, Cybellum provides a prevention platform to protect companies from zero-day attacks, which are cyber attacks against software flaws that are unknown and unpatched. The company delivers an agentless, cloud-based and on premise solution that gives fully automatic forensics and visibility into each incident without the need for cyber experts to operate it.
In addition to the funding, Cybellum announced the discovery of three new zero-day vulnerabilities that are currently unpublished, unpatched and are potentially being used in the wild.
