Cybersecurity startup Trinity Cyber secures $23 million, led by Intel Capital, to proactively disrupt cyber attacks
Trinity Cyber, a cybersecurity startup that provides proactive, adaptive and invisible military-grade cybersecurity services, announced Monday it has closed $23 million in funding from top institutional investors led by Intel Capital. In conjunction with the funding, Trinity Cyber also announced that former White House Cyber Chief Thomas P. Bossert has joined its Management.
Founded in 2016 by CEO Steve Ryan and President Marie O’Neill, the Washington, DC Metro Area-based Trinity Cyber provides proactive, adaptive and invisible military-grade cybersecurity services that are independent from and complementary to existing customer’s network security. With its new technology to proactively intercept and control cyberattacks, Trinity Cyber also uses a new approach of using stealth interception of external threats before they reach a customer’s network. Their technology complements existing cybersecurity solutions. Unlike other solutions out there, Trinity operates outside customer’s network, between you and the adversary, providing invisible security never before available to the public.
“This investment by Intel Capital and other strategic backers is significant,” said Trinity Cyber CEO Steve Ryan. “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.”
Trinity Cyber also announced that, in addition to CEO Steve Ryan and President Marie “Neill” Sciarrone, former Homeland Security Advisor and U.S. cybersecurity chief, Tom Bossert, has joined the management team.
“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 caliber solution to U.S. businesses that is capable of defeating nation-state level attacks and long overdue.”
Trinity Cyber offers technology-enabled operations to its customers that actively prevent attacks. It does not compete with traditional, reactive detection and remediation capabilities, but rather is additive. By operating outside of network perimeters to intercept cybersecurity attacks, the Trinity Cyber approach achieves unrivaled speed, efficiency, and security.
Trinity Cyber’s patent-pending technology, known as Proactive Threat Interference®, stops attacks before they reach internal networks, reducing risk and increasing cost to adversaries.
“This is an important day for Trinity Cyber,” said President & Co-founder Marie “Neill” Sciarrone. “We are effectively announcing our emergence from stealth mode, a strategic new leadership hire, and funding above the industry average for a Series A round.” She added, “By offering a truly preventive solution to a topical and challenging problem, Trinity Cyber adds value to virtually every industry sector and is destined to set a new cybersecurity risk management standard.”
