Norwegian startup Pistachio has secured €3.25 million ($3.5 million) in funding for its AI-powered cybersecurity training platform. The platform utilizes artificial intelligence to design tailored training modules and automated attack simulations for employees within organizations.
Furthermore, by creating individual profiles, the platform generates personalized training programs, with attack simulations adjusting their pace based on the user’s increasing security awareness.
Additionally, Pistachio’s platform boasts rapid integration, providing customers with instant access as opposed to other alternatives that might require months for integration. With a customer base of over 100 organizations spanning eight European countries, Pistachio is set to expand its reach further with the backing of funding from an investor consortium led by Signals Venture Capital.
Having raised a total of €5.4 million ($6 million) to date, the startup aims to revolutionize cybersecurity practices with a focus on countering modern threats.
At the same time, Mohammed Awais, co-founder and CEO of Pistachio, expressed excitement about the company’s new investors and highlighted the platform’s potential to transform how companies approach security challenges.
The funding infusion is expected to accelerate Pistachio’s growth across Europe and facilitate its entry into the North American market, as it seeks to establish itself as a pioneering force in the realm of cybersecurity training.
