Prevailion Secures $10M Series A Investment Led By AllegisCyber

31 July 2019

Prevailion, a high-growth cybersecurity company transforming the way businesses approach risk discovery, evaluation and mitigation, today announced completion of its Series A funding led by AllegisCyber, a Silicon Valley and Maryland-based cybersecurity venture firm. Previous investor DataTribe, a global cyber foundry, also participated in this round. Prevailion raised its $2M seed round from DataTribe less than 12 months ago at the inaugural DataTribe Challenge.

“Prevailion’s unique technology materially changes the dynamic between defenders and attackers where time-to-action is essential to effective cyber defense. On average, cyber compromises are discovered 270 days after an initial breach, giving attackers a nine-month head-start on the defenders. Prevailion’s platform identifies breaches at the time of compromise, or even as an adversarial campaign is being prepared, with deep intelligence and zero false positives. Their technology is truly a breakthrough in cyber defense,” said Bob Ackerman, Founder and Managing Director of AllegisCyber and DataTribe co-founder.

“Prevailion’s experienced team has extensive roots from the NSA and CIA and is leading the world with their new class of cybersecurity compromise management teams. Given this expertise, their growth since inception is a testimony both to these capabilities and the markets’ demand for innovative ways to identify and counter cyber adversaries,” said Mike Janke, Prevailion board member and co-founder of DataTribe.

Funding Provides Opportunity To Create Tailored Intelligence Team, Add Senior Executives And Move To New Office In Columbia, Maryland

Prevailion is using the new funding to grow their executive ranks. In addition to investing in engineering and sales executives, Prevailion recently added an industry-leading Tailored Intelligence team that will be led by Adam Flatley, Vice President of Tailored Intelligence. Flatley will be joined by David Maynor, Senior Director of Intelligence Operations; Nate Winslow, Ph.D.,Technical Director of Intelligence Operations, and Danny Adamitis, Director of Intelligence Analysis. The Tailored Intelligence team brings a combined fifty-plus years of experience working in the academic, public, and private sectors. Their backgrounds include cybersecurity intelligence operations, penetration testing, malware reverse engineering, and model-based data analytics.

With the new funding, the company will also continue to grow their internal and external legal, policy, and operational expertise. Prevailion is promoting Elizabeth Wharton, Vice President of Strategy to Vice President of Operations and Strategy.

“I’m excited about adding AllegisCyber, a globally recognized cybersecurity investor, as a new investor and appreciate the continued support of seed investor, DataTribe. With this additional capital, and the changes in our executive ranks, we are uniquely positioned to deliver tailored intelligence that empowers risk-based decisions. Organizations with contagious ecosystems can now limit their exposure and avoid infection preemptively by using our intelligence platform,” said Karim Hijazi, Prevailion Founder and CEO.

Prevalion will also be expanding into new offices in Columbia, Maryland.
