Israeli early-stage deep tech fund VentureIsrael led cyber Cydome's seed investment round of $2.2 million with participation of private investors from Israel and Singapore. The funding will be used to accelerate from pilot projects to full deployment of the Cydome solution among key customers and partners.

Cydome developed a cyber security solution seamlessly safeguarding the maritime and naval IoT ecosystem, including guidance, sensor, control, command, communication systems and linkage to coastal infrastructures; providing end-to-end protection from the kernel level using data and network isolation; rapid, reliable and automatic threat detection and protection.

Igor Turkin, Managing General Partner, VentureIsrael: "We believe the Cydome solution was launched at exactly the right time. We are noticing two parallel processes: on the one hand, the number of cyber attacks on vessels is increasing every day, and on the other hand, the regulation of cybersecurity on ships is becoming the industry standard." 

Nir Ayalon, CEO and Founder, Cydome: "We are happy to have VentureIsrael as our partners and looking forward to work together and protect the maritime world."
