FireCompass announced the company has secured $7 million in funding to revolutionize Red Teaming and Attack Surface Management.
The round was led by Silicon Valley-based Cervin and Athera Venture Partners (previously Inventus Capital) along with existing investor BIF (Bharat Innovation Fund). The investment will be used to expand FireCompass' operations across U.S. and international markets and bring on new talent.
“Organizations typically test some of their assets some of the time, whereas, hackers are attacking all of the assets all of the time,” said Bikash Barai, co-founder of FireCompass. “At FireCompass, our vision is to make Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART) available to all so that organizations can continuously discover and test all their assets at all times—just like the real attackers”.
FireCompass' automated red teaming and attack surface discovery platform helps companies to mitigate risks faster by identifying vulnerabilities and prioritizing the ones that are most likely to be exploited by attackers.
Unlike other conventional External Attack Surface Management (EASM) Tools, which stop at the discovery of the attack surface, FireCompass conducts real attacks using its proprietary playbooks, according to the company.
The key advantages are:
- Faster mitigation of risks due to continuous discovery and testing of cyber attack surface
- Lower false positives due to active testing of reconnaissance findings
- Better prioritization and lesser noise by using attacker-centric playbooks
