Horizon3.ai, a leading provider of autonomous security testing solutions, has successfully secured $40 million in a Series C funding round, with Craft Ventures leading the investment and participation from Signal Fire.
Furthermore, this funding boost comes as Horizon3.ai continues to make waves with its NodeZero platform, which offers self-service autonomous pentesting via a SaaS model. This cutting-edge solution enables organizations to validate their security posture and proactively minimize their vulnerable attack surface.
The NodeZero platform holds versatile applications, empowering Blue Teams to reinforce their infrastructure resilience and enabling SOCs to fine-tune security tools through a dynamic “sparring partner” approach.
Additionally, CISOs gain a valuable tool for showcasing their security standing to critical stakeholders, including boards, auditors, and regulators. With an evolving cybersecurity landscape and the escalating threat of cyberattacks, Horizon3.ai’s funding injection will drive the integration of pentesting, SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response), and detection engineering within their platform.
Snehal Antani, the visionary founder and CEO of Horizon3.ai, highlighted the growing complexity of cybersecurity challenges faced by enterprises, emphasizing the need to secure on-prem infrastructure, diverse cloud environments, numerous SaaS services, and Internet of Things (IoT) assets. Antani noted that adversaries are increasingly targeting critical infrastructure like satellites, connected vehicles, fighter jets, and industrial control systems.
The CEO emphasized that the company’s solutions offer proactive protection, guiding customers in uncovering exploitable vulnerabilities, addressing high-priority issues, and validating the efficacy of their corrective measures before they become targets for malicious attacks.
