Cymulate Raises $70 Million Series D Funding for Continuous Security Posture Testing
Cymulate, the market leader in Extended Security Posture Management (XSPM), announced a $70 million Series D investment led by existing investors One Peak, together with Susquehanna Growth Equity (SGE), Vertex Ventures Israel, Vertex Growth and Dell Technologies Capital. Cymulate has raised $141 Million to date.
The latest investment, which is among the largest for continuous security testing vendors, doubles Cymulate’s funding raised to date and accelerates the Company’s global expansion and pace of innovation.
In a recent report on Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) Gartner analysts observed, “Previous approaches to managing the attack surface are no longer keeping up with digital velocity — in an age where organizations can’t fix everything, nor can they be completely sure what vulnerability remediation can be safely postponed. CTEM is a pragmatic and effective systemic approach to continuously refine priorities, walking the tightrope between those two impossible extremes.”* The global shortage of 2.72 million cybersecurity professionals, and overstretched in-house security resources further exacerbates the need for Cymulate’s real-world solutions which closes security gaps quickly and efficiently, rationalizes technology, helps upskill staff and improves processes.

“We are thrilled to lead this round of investment in Cymulate,” said David Klein, Managing Partner of One Peak. “Cyber posture management and continuous security validation have dramatically increased in popularity in response to the onslaught of ransomware and cyber warfare for businesses across all size ranges. Cymulate is the clear leader in the sector, and we look forward to continuing to support the Company in further accelerating its already strong growth trajectory.”
Cymulate sets the industry standard for organizations to use automation to continuously validate their threat exposure and cyber posture, by testing their cloud and on-premise networks against the latest threats in the wild. The Company’s Extended Security Posture Management platform leverages its native offensive security technology and capabilities to widely support customers’ security and business needs. XSPM incorporates four fundamental pillars tied together with analytics to provide actionable security posture insights: Attack Surface Management, Continuous Automated Red Teaming, Breach & Attack Simulation, and Advanced Purple Teaming. Cymulate’s customers see their cyber risk reduced by nearly 50% during the first three months of use. Running daily risk assessments, the cyber risk of Cymulate’s customers continues to decrease in the first year without any security drift.
