Operating system runtime validation and security firm Invary today announced it has raised $1.85 million in a pre-seed funding round led by Flyover Capital.
The Lawrence, Kansas-based startup offers a free Runtime Integrity Score (RISe) service that helps organizations check the integrity of their systems to identify known vulnerabilities and hidden malware.
Built using an intellectual property grant from the National Security Agency, Invary’s runtime integrity technology identifies issues by performing continuous validation of the operating system.
The Invary agent allows organizations to measure the integrity of both virtual and physical operating systems, appraise integrity with the company’s attestation cloud, and integrate existing SIEM or XDR solutions to resolve identified issues.
The new investment, the company says, will be used toward the launch of its flagship runtime integrity offering this summer.
“Our pre-seed funding enables us to realize this dedication by continuously improving Invary’s Runtime Integrity Service while also making our agent open source. We’re proud to enhance operating system security for all by accelerating the industry’s progress toward truly comprehensive Zero Trust architectures,” said Invary CTO Wesley Peck.
The NetWork Kansas GROWKS Equity program and KU Innovation Park also participated in the pre-seed funding round.
