K2 Cyber Security comes out of stealth with cloud platform to prevent zero day attacks with no false positives
K2 will be working with channel partners out of the gate, although their number will be limited at the start.
Today, San Jose-based startup K2 Cyber Security is emerging from stealth and announcing the general availability of its cloud workload security platform, along with the announcement that they have secured $6 million in seed funding from two venture capital companies. The major interest here is the brashness of K2’s pitch. They asset, with no asterisks or qualifications, is that their platform prevents zero day attacks, in real time, with no false positives, regardless of an application’s patch status. It’s something that hasn’t existed before, but Pravin Madhani, K2’s co-founder and CEO, said that they have pulled it off.
