BreachQuest Raises $4.4M in Seed Funding

BreachQuest, a Dallas TX-based incident response software company, raised $4.4M in seed funding.

The round was led by Slow Ventures, with participation from Tinder Founders Sean Rad, Justin Mateen and Lookout Founder Kevin Mahaffey.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the development and rollout of its PRIORI platform.

Led by CEO Shaun Gordon and Chief Technology Officer Jake Williams, BreachQuest provides the PRIORI platform which aims to empower organizations to improve their security posture with end-to-end readiness and response capabilities that gives visibility for first responders into when and where a breach happened.

To this end, the company leverages a team of cybersecurity veterans, including former NSA, DoD and US Cyber Command operators that have serviced more than 40 percent of the Fortune 100. The leadership team also includes cyber industry veterans A.J. King, a cybersecurity leader from the financial services sector who is serving as Chief Information Security Officer, and Shawn Melito, Chief Revenue Officer.
