Cynerio iot 30m Series, a startup that provides security for mission-critical medical and IoT devices, has raised $30 million in Series B funding. The round was led by Accel, with participation from existing investors Microsoft Ventures, MassMutual Ventures, and OurCrowd.
Founded in 2016, Cynerio iot 30m Series offers a platform that helps organizations secure their medical devices and IoT devices from cyber threats. The platform uses machine learning to analyze traffic and identify malicious activity, and it can also block attacks in real-time.
The company says that its platform is currently being used by over 100 customers, including hospitals, clinics, and device manufacturers.
“As more and more devices are connected to the internet, the need for security solutions that can protect them from cyber threats is becoming more and more critical,” said Cynerio CEO, Yaronovitch. “Our platform provides a way for organizations to secure their devices without impacting the performance or functionality of the devices themselves.”
With the new funding, Cynerio iot 30m Series plans to expand its sales and marketing efforts, as well as continue to invest in research and development.

Mission-critical medical and IoT devices are being increasingly targeted by cyber criminals due to the sensitive data they hold. In 2017, the WannaCry ransomware attack hit over 150 countries and affected more than 200,000 organizations, including hospitals, businesses, and governments.
Cybersecurity is a major concern for healthcare organizations, as well as for device manufacturers. In 2018, the FDA released guidance on cybersecurity for medical devices, and in 2019, the agency issued a recall of 465,000 pacemakers due to cybersecurity concerns.
Cynerio’s platform can help organizations secure their devices from these sorts of attacks. The company’s technology uses machine learning to analyze traffic and identify malicious activity, and it can also block attacks in real-time.
