SEATTLE, March 27, 2018 — Critical Informatics, a leader in cybersecurity Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, announced today the close of an additional $2 million of funding. The fundraise, led by East Seattle Partners, completes the extension of the company’s original Series A and brings their total funding to $6.35 million.
Critical Informatics’ CEO, Garrett Silver, noted that the company plans to use the capital to continue to scale its MDR for large organizations. The funds will also be used to accelerate Critical Informatics’ product development in a variety of areas, including: improved integrations with cloud services and customer-facing dashboards for both their core MDR service and Continuous Vulnerability Investigation. “Over the past year of growth and customer feedback, we have learned how important it is to provide our customers insight into traffic on, as well as, threats to their network,” said founder Michael Hamilton. “Our dashboards provide quick access to this information and make it much easier for leaders to make informed decisions and measure IT Security related KPIs.”
With the closure of this round, Critical Informatics attracted even more world-class investors. The group includes former BlackRock Managing Director, Bryan White and Cigna-Healthspring founder, Herbert Fritch. “Healthcare organizations are rich targets for cyber criminals, and the extreme shortage of security talent contributes to an already significant challenge,” said Fritch. “By fusing machine with human intelligence, Critical Informatics provides both the technology and security analyst talent to encompass a complete Managed Detection and Response solution.”
