No-Code Security Automation Funding: ContraForce Raises $2 Million

ContraForce, a no-code security automation platform and security and compliance solutions provider, has received a $2 million seed investment from global cyber foundry DataTribe.

The investment supports ContraForce's mission to deliver simple and effective cybersecurity solutions for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), CEO Stan Golubchik said. It also helps ContraForce deliver a no-code security automation platform that streamlines threat detection, response and compliance.

ContraForce: Simplifying SMB Security?

ContraForce's platform makes cybersecurity accessible for SMBs that lack the resources and expertise to defend themselves, the company said. To do so, the platform provides a DevOps fabric that works on top of SMBs' security tools. That way, SMBs can respond to threats without having to learn or write complex security detection code and response workflows.

SMBs can integrate ContraForce's platform into any security tool data source and create playbook response workflows, the company noted. After an SMB's data sources are connected, the platform orchestrates detection across various signals and visualizes cyberattacks with guided threat hunting.

In addition, ContraForce's platform lets SMBs integrate security tool data sources in just a few clicks, the company indicated. This ensures SMBs can onboard new sources in hours.

Along with its platform, ContraForce delivers security and compliance solutions that map vulnerabilities to the MITRE ATT&CK framework, the company said.

ContraForce's security and compliance solutions create and adapt threat detection and response capabilities in real time, the company stated. They ensure cloud, endpoint and other IT environments can be secured in hours.

ContraForce Joins MISA

The seed investment news comes after ContraForce in July 2021 joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). ContraForce received a MISA nomination based on its Microsoft Azure Sentinel API integration.

ContraForce helps SMBs automate operations to combat cyberattacks and comply with data security mandates. It also offers a partner ecosystem for MSSPs, MSPs and systems integrators.
