Offensive security startup Hadrian today announced that it has received €10.5 million ($11 million) in unsolicited seed funding that brings the total invested in the company to $13.7 million.
The investment round was led by HV Capital, with participation from Picus Capital, previous investor Slimmer.AI, and various angel investors.
Founded in 2021, the Amsterdam-based Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) startup has developed a platform that provides attack surface management, autonomous hacking, and risk prioritization capabilities.
Instead of spending time on conventional pentesting, Hadrian’s event-based solution continuously scans an organization’s entire attack surface to identify unknown weaknesses. By combining machine learning and artificial intelligence modules to mimic hacker creativity, the platform can scan billions of assets daily, the company says.
Hadrian plans to use the new funding to hire talent, including hackers, developers, and sales specialists, to drive scale, consolidate market presence, and ready for expansion to the US.
“As companies are overwhelmed by cybercrime, the unique value of hackers’ outside-in approach to security becomes more important. Our autonomous technology identifies real threats and prioritizes where action is needed, connecting urgent tasks to existing workflow tools and processes so that the important stuff gets handled first,” Hadrian CEO Rogier Fischer said.
