Polyverse Corporation, a Bellevue, Wash.-based cybersecurity technology provider, received $8m in new funding.
The round was led by existing investors and Japanese security company Soliton Systems KK.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the adoption of its cybersecurity technology among government agencies and solution providers and expand capabilities such as polymorphic script engines and polymorphic build farms, for DevSecOps.
Founded in 2015 and led by CEO Alex Gounares, Polyverse develops cybersecurity technology – including “Polymorphing for Linux,” that protects servers against memory-based exploits by stopping zero-day, code-execution, overflow and memory-based attacks. The technology is deployed by government and security-conscious organizations, and is also embedded in IoT devices and connected hardware such as healthcare devices. Polyverse Polymorphed Linux is currently running on millions of servers.
The technology has been validated by the U.S. Department of Defense to mitigate against zero-day memory exploits like WannaCry and Spectre, and the attacks on companies such as Equifax.
