Cybersecurity services and solutions startup Trinity Cyber announced on Monday that it has raised $23 million through a funding round led by Intel Capital.
The Bowie, Maryland-based company says it is taking new approach to cybersecurity, claiming “stealth interception of external threats” before they reach a customer’s network.
With technology that is designed to complement to existing cybersecurity tools, the company explains that its technology runs on Trinity Cyber owned hardware housed in data centers around the United States. The company points out that it does not offer cloud-based services, but instead sells its technology on a SaaS model that is hosted and operated on segregated networks.
The company is not looking to compete with traditional, reactive detection and remediation capabilities, but says its offering are additive.
“As cyberattacks become more sophisticated, technology to counter them needs to stay one step ahead,” said Wendell Brooks, Senior Vice President of Intel Corporation and President of Intel Capital. “As the threat landscape continues to grow, so does the opportunity to provide cutting edge technology to protect a company’s valuable data. We are excited about being part of Trinity Cyber’s innovative commitment to helping companies stay secure.”
