Israeli cyber security company Cybellum has raised $2.5 million in a seed financing round led by Blumberg Capital. Tel Aviv-based Cybellum will use the funding to fuel its expansion, including opening a US office in 2017, and to further its R&D efforts. The company also announced the discovery of three new zero-day vulnerabilities that are currently unpublished, unpatched and are potentially being used in the wild.
Cybellum has developed the first deterministic zero-day prevention platform to protect companies from zero-day attacks. Zero-day attacks are cyber attacks against software flaws that are unknown and unpatched.
