AttackIQ, an independent vendor of Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) systems, announced it has secured $44 million in a Series C funding round, empowering the company to continue its investment in cybersecurity.
The funding round was led by Atlantic Bridge. Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures (SAEV) and Gaingels also joined existing investors Index Ventures, Khosla Ventures, Salesforce Ventures, and Telstra Ventures, bringing the total funding to approximately $79 million. The company also announced that Kevin Dillon, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Atlantic Bridge, has also joined the AttackIQ Board of Directors.
The new funding comes at a dynamic time for the company, which has recently accelerated its international expansion efforts throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), as well as the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) regions.
AttackIQ’s strategic expansion in the regions includes a partnership with the leading global distributor of business technology, Westcon, which provides access to an extensive network of reseller partners. The company’s partnership with Atlantic Bridge will fuel continued international growth in both large private and public organizations.
“This investment reaffirms the strength of AttackIQ’s Security Optimization Platform, which leverages the MITRE ATT&CK framework to help organizations validate the effectiveness of their security controls safely, continuously, at scale, and across the kill chain,” said Brett Galloway, the CEO of AttackIQ. “The key question every CISO must answer is, ‘Are we ready for the next attack?’ AttackIQ lets CISOs assure the effectiveness and efficiency of their security programs.”
AttackIQ is committed to giving back to the global cybersecurity community. With more than 17,200 registered students to date in 176 countries, AttackIQ Academy provides free entry-level and advanced cybersecurity training and hands-on cyberrange labs, so CISOs can keep their teams knowledgeable on the latest cybersecurity attack methods and defense strategies.
