SAN DIEGO, Nov. 30, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AttackIQ, a leader in the emerging market of continuous security validation, announced it has closed an $8.8 million Series A funding round. The round includes investors from Index Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures and Telstra Ventures. AttackIQ will use the new funding to expand its partner, sales and marketing initiatives, and build out its strategic services and engineering teams.

“Today cybersecurity is a hot topic in every boardroom discussion. Measuring risk and defensive capabilities and then linking it to business decisions is more important than ever before,” said Shardul Shah, partner, Index Ventures. “AttackIQ makes it easier for organizations at all levels of their security program to do this with its FireDrill platform. The purpose-built community and the ability to add and integrate seamlessly to the platform is what separates AttackIQ from the competition in this emerging market.”
