Cyclops, a contextual cybersecurity search platform, has successfully completed its seed funding round, raising $6.4 million. The investment was led by Merlin Ventures, Insight Partners, Tal Ventures, and toDay Ventures, with support from CrowdStrike’s strategic investment vehicle, CrowdStrike Falcon Fund. The company’s founders, Eran Zilberman (CEO), Elay Gueta (CTO), and Biran Franco (CPO), have extensive cybersecurity expertise, making Cyclops a promising venture in the industry.

The platform offers an intuitive search engine powered by generative AI, aimed at answering critical security questions without the need for forensics or SIEM expertise. It aims to empower security teams to proactively defend against cyber threats and prioritize addressing vulnerabilities with the necessary contextual data. Cyclops’ user-friendly approach provides relevant security information, enhancing decision-making for security teams.

“With Cyclops, these days are over. Our main purpose is to empower security teams to proactively defend against cyber threats and prioritize addressing critical vulnerabilities with the necessary contextual data,” said Eran Zilberman, Cyclops CEO.

The funding will enable Cyclops to scale its operations, hire more developers for product innovation, and expand its go-to-market strategy. The company has already made investments in breakthrough science startups, including cislunar infrastructure provider Quantum Space, mental health therapeutics company Gilgamesh Pharmaceuticals, brain-computer interface developer Paradromics, and robotics innovator Robust.AI.

Cyclops’ platform, built on a cybersecurity mesh architecture (CSMA), employs generative AI to provide an intuitive and user-friendly experience. Security teams can quickly and easily query Cyclops through a natural language search bar to gain meaningful insights about their environment and address vulnerabilities, security incidents, and governance, risk, and compliance scenarios.

The company aims to disrupt the cybersecurity market by offering a unified and intuitive solution to tackle intricate security questions and navigate complexities with unprecedented efficiency and foresight.

“As a cyber fund, we actively seek out companies that disrupt existing categories, and Cyclops is poised to revolutionize how we approach and combat cyber-attacks,” said Shay Michel, Managing Partner at Merlin Ventures.

The successful seed funding round further solidifies Cyclops’ position in the cybersecurity industry, with the company now well-equipped to provide cutting-edge solutions and transform cybersecurity strategy for organizations worldwide.
