Upstream Security, a Herzliya, Israel-based cybersecurity platform provider for connected cars and self-driving vehicles, raised $9m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Charles River Ventures with participation from Glilot Capital Partners and Maniv Mobility.
The company will use the funds to expand its R&D program and continue building out its engineering team and security research team, and open marketing and sales offices in the United States and Europe.
Led by CEO Yoav Levy, Upstream provides a cloud-based cybersecurity solution that protects the technologies and applications of connected and autonomous vehicles. The company leverages big data and machine learning to provide OEMs and vehicle fleets with comprehensive, and non-intrusive defense. With application security, real-time data protection and anomaly detection, attacks are identified and blocked before they reach and harm the vehicle’s network.
