Israeli Generative AI cybersecurity startup, Cyclops Security, exited stealth mode today with a seed funding round of $6.4 million, led by Merlin Ventures, Insight Partners, Tal Ventures and toDay Ventures. Participating investors include CrowdStrike’s strategic investment vehicle, CrowdStrike Falcon Fund, Michael Fey, Dan Amiga, Ofer Smadari and Eyal Gruner.

Established by cybersecurity veterans Eran Zilberman (CEO), Elay Gueta (CTO) and Biran Franco (CPO), Cyclops introduces a user-friendly search engine powered by Generative AI. It aims to provide timely and essential insights into an organization’s security status without requiring specialized knowledge in forensics or SIEM.

The platform delivers straightforward responses akin to Google Search or ChatGPT, providing relevant security data to enhance the decision-making process. For years, organizations have grappled with comprehending and managing security data, both on premises and cloud-based, across numerous overlapping security tools. This struggle has impeded productivity, visibility, and the ability to prioritize crucial security decisions and actions.

The Cyclops platform is designed with a cybersecurity mesh architecture (CSMA) and powered by Generative AI for a user-friendly experience. Security teams can quickly query Cyclops through a natural language search bar to glean meaningful insights about their environment and handle vulnerabilities, security incidents, and governance, risk, and compliance scenarios. Cyclops facilitates the optimization of their existing tech stack, decreases mean time to detection (MTTD) and mean time to response (MTTR) by 80%, and aids CISOs in managing their cybersecurity strategy more effectively.

The funding will enable the company to scale to meet the demands of its expanding customer base, recruit more developers for ongoing product innovation and enhanced capabilities, and boost its go-to-market strategy. Cyclops is currently available and already assists customers in the fintech, insurance, hi-tech, and manufacturing sectors by significantly improving their efficiency in risk validation, vulnerability prioritization, posture management, and compliance monitoring.
