Cybersecurity startup Trinity Cyber recently secured $23 million in funding from top institutional investors led by Intel Capital. Along with the funding, the company also announced that former White House Cyber Chief and Homeland Security Advisor Thomas P. Bossert has joined its management team.
Founded in 2016 by security veterans Steve Ryan and Marie O’Neill, Trinity Cyber provides proactive, adaptive, and invisible military-grade cybersecurity services to stop adversary attacks. The company claims that its technology intercepts and control cyberattacks using stealth interception of external threats before they reach a customer’s network. Trinity Cyber also claimed that its patent-pending technology Proactive Threat Interference stops attacks before they reach the target’s internal networks.
“This investment by Intel Capital and other strategic backers is significant,” said Steve Ryan, the CEO of Trinity Cyber. “I co-founded Trinity Cyber to transform the way the world addresses the cyber problem. No one is doing what Trinity Cyber is doing. No one else can. We make the adversary fail, and we feel this strategic support validates the elegance of our solution.”
“As cyberattacks become more sophisticated, technology to counter them needs to stay one step ahead,” said Wendell Brooks, Senior Vice President of Intel Corporation and President of Intel Capital. “As the threat landscape continues to grow, so does the opportunity to provide cutting edge technology to protect a company’s valuable data. We are excited about being part of Trinity Cyber’s innovative commitment to helping companies stay secure.”
“The trend in global cyber-attacks has been going in the wrong direction for some time, and American businesses are paying the price. It’s time we meet this problem with a truly preventive solution,” said Bossert. “Trinity Cyber provides a high calibre solution to U.S. businesses that is capable of defeating nation-state level attacks and long overdue.”
