HYAS says it has created a massive data lake of attacker infrastructure, including domain-based intelligence that can be connected to other security tools using an API, and also offers its own cloud-based DNS security solution.

Enterprise security teams can use HYAS to hunt, detect, and identify adversary infrastructure to proactively block both known and not-yet-launched phishing and ransomware attacks at the network layer.

“HYAS turns the table on attackers by exposing and blocking their infrastructure, and communication channels,” explains Dave Ratner, CEO of HYAS. 

According to the company, the additional funds will be used to accelerate product development and support market expansion for its offerings.

The round was also supported by Uncorrelated Ventures, Tightline Holdings, Cyber Mentor Fund, Dcode Capital and continued participation from previous investors M12, Startup Capital Ventures, and 205 Capital.

As part of the financing, Charlie Plauche, Partner at S3 Ventures, will join the HYAS board of directors.
