Before we jump in, allow me to say that camDown helps stop hackers from getting access to the webcam that I use for my work. Now I can get even more gigs as a freelancer and advertise that I have top security with my home computer.

Wow a whole 700k, add a bit more and it can almost cover an Splunk license.

This guy Splunk Enterprises. This might cover Crowdstrike Falcon for a few months as well.

Gotta start somewhere I guess

level 1

Very scarce on actual details unfortunately… the article reads more like a clickbait for management. I‘d be suspicious of some of the statements

level 2

This is PR on the raise, I checked the website out they come out of a University, so they might actually have something tangible ... but probably very early.

level 1

From the article:

[we have] a unique position where we have unrivalled data on attacker techniques, methods and behaviour.

How can a 6 month old startup possibly have threat intel that’s more valuable than vendors who process hundreds, if not thousands of customer’s data daily? Like any IDS solution inspects more traffic daily than their startup has even acquired

level 2

If you read it, they come from a University, I don't think they would let them open a spinout company if they hadn't something there. Also my understanding of it, is that the "unrivalled" data that they acquire as their deployments grow, and this makes sense.

level 2

The fact that 700k is a big deal to them clearly shows that they have no experience at all in the corporate space and either a) are lying to their investors for a quick cash grab or b) have literally no idea what they are doing. I'd be willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and say it might be B with a little bit of A, but there is literally no way they have "unrivaled data".

I guess there is not only data driven cyber security, good stuff

It’s too much BS not enough substance. That usually means they don’t have anything..

Wtf is ‘pre-seed’? As soon as they cash the check they is seed stage.

The hacker is the hunted not the hunter. More like a poacher I guess.

When all is said and done, as we move on to the next post, may I add that camDown has a modern UI, that is secure and has the improved features that you need.
