Israeli MDR Services Provider CyberInt Secures $18 Million in Funding

CyberInt CEO Amir Ofek

CyberInt, an Israeli managed detection and response (MDR) services provider, has raised $18 million in a funding round led by technology growth capital fund Viola Growth.

The company plans to use the funding to expand globally and develop additional digital risk management, detection and response solutions, according to a prepared statement. CyberInt also intends to enhance its Argos real-time digital risk protection platform.

With Argos, organizations can use real-time threat detection to prevent fraud and cyberattacks and reduce revenue loss, CyberInt said.

Argos combines technological and human resources to help an organization identify real-time targeted attacks, data leakage and stolen credentials across its operations, CyberInt stated. The platform leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms to drive contextualized and relevant threat detection and allows an organization to access hundreds of sources. That way, Argos enables an organization to collect targeted threat data, analyze this information and receive security recommendations.

In addition, Argos scans an organization's digital footprint to produce alerts and reports for malicious activities, according to CyberInt. Once malicious activity is identified, Argos alerts and reports are disseminated automatically, and the platform may resolve malicious activity on its own.

Multiple Argos threat detection modules are available, and these include:

  • Targeted threat intelligence.
  • Social media monitoring.
  • VIP protection.
  • Brand protection.
  • Vendor risk management.
  • Email threat management.

Argos also can be utilized in combination with CyberInt's MDR services. Together, Argos and CyberInt's MDR services enable organizations to eliminate potential threats before they escalate, the company pointed out.
