Latest round led by Maor Investments and Ten Eleven Ventures bolsters Vulcan Cyber vulnerability risk management leadership position, and promotes expansion into cyber risk and attack path management markets
TEL AVIV, Israel, November 15, 2023-- Vulcan Cyber®, developers of the market-leading cyber risk management platform, today announced it has closed its $55 million Series B with the addition of a $34 million investment led by Maor Investments and Ten Eleven Ventures with participation from existing Vulcan Cyber investors Dawn Capital and Wipro Ventures. This latest investment marks a total of $70 million invested in Vulcan Cyber to date.
Based on annual recurring revenue in the trailing twelve months through Q3 2023, Vulcan Cyber more than doubled revenue year over year while aligning with current market requirements for operational efficiency. Vulcan Cyber revenue growth is based on substantial global demand for a SaaS solution that goes beyond traditional vulnerability scanning and vulnerability management to help cyber security teams and asset owners mitigate the cyber risk that presents the most critical threat to customers' unique organizations.
Vulcan Cyber will use funds from this round to fuel continued product innovation, expand into new markets, accelerate rapid revenue growth, and build on market momentum.
Vulcan Cyber was recently recognized as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Vulnerability Risk Management, Q3 2023 (1) and the Omdia Universe: Risk-Based Vulnerability Management Solutions, 2023 (2) vendor evaluations. In addition, Vulcan Cyber was named a winner of the coveted SINET16 Innovator Award as one of the most-innovative and compelling cyber security products of 2023.
According to the Forrester Vulnerability Risk Management Wave, "Vulcan Cyber's innovative culture sets it apart from now-common VRM approaches. Vulcan Cyber's differentiated and detailed vision is to democratize risk through self-service, no-code data ingestion, and AI data mapping. Vulcan Cyber is a great fit for organizations that foresee technology ownership expanding throughout their business stakeholders."
Samira Jamnejad, Wealthsimple security assurance manager, said, "Our vulnerability management team collaborates with more than 800 software engineers and asset owners to mitigate risk across our environment. Vulnerability risk management at this level of scale would not be efficient, or even possible, without Vulcan Cyber risk prioritization and risk mitigation orchestration."
Eric Elalouf, managing partner of Maor Investments, said, "As the threat landscape and attack surfaces grow in complexity and scale, Vulcan Cyber increasingly resonates with cyber security executives who recognize the challenge and seek an innovative, more-effective approach to cyber risk management. With a flexible architecture allowing integration to virtually any security tool in the market and adaptive risk prioritization, Vulcan Cyber is ideally positioned to lead the enterprise cyber risk management market. We are thrilled to support the Vulcan Cyber team, driven by a clear vision and outstanding leadership."
Yaniv Bar-Dayan, Vulcan Cyber CEO and co-founder, said, "Vulcan Cyber is leading the way in a push to move beyond common vulnerability management functions of scan and prioritize, to ease the heavy lifting of meaningful risk mitigation. Efficient collaboration between security, engineering, operations teams and asset owners is essential. Orchestration and automation of remediation tasks at enterprise scale is critical. This round of funding will help Vulcan Cyber deliver on its vision to help customers align vulnerability risk management efforts with business priorities."
Vulcan Cyber is building the platform to support comprehensive exposure management going beyond traditional vulnerability management to include:
• Application security posture management (ASPM);
• Cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM);
