Tidal Cyber, an early stage startup founded by veterans from MITRE, on Thursday announced that it has raised $5 million in a seed funding round led by Squadra Ventures.
Founded in 2022, the Washington, DC-based firm is building what is described as a threat-informed defense platform that helps organizations automate detection and response while reducing time spent on analysis.
Aligned with the MITRE ATT&CK framework, Tidal Cyber is promising tooling to provide SOC teams with recommendations to help them customize their security programs to threats relevant to their organization.
Essentially, Tidal Cyber’s platform helps embed MITRE ATT&CK, so that security teams can identify relevant threats, take timely action, optimize their organization’s security stack, and asses their cybersecurity posture.
The platform’s capabilities include a threat profile builder, a prioritized to-do list, a map of defensive capabilities within an organization, and a confidence score on cyber posture.
Tidal says its enterprise edition solution has been already adopted by organizations in critical infrastructure sectors, including the financial services and healthcare industries.
The company also offers a free-to-use community edition of the platform, which allows organizations to assess, organize and optimize cyber defenses based on threats relevant to them.
“Harnessing a comprehensive set of TTPs, defensive capabilities, and our team’s deep knowledge of MITRE ATT&CK, our threat-informed defense platform allows security operators to focus their activities on the threats that are relevant to their organization, and take action at the speed of the adversary,” Tidal Cyber CEO and co-founder Rick Gordon said.
