JASK, the creator and provider of the first Autonomous Security Operations Center (ASOC) platform, has raised $25M in Series B funding. Led by Kleiner Perkins with participation from early investors, including Battery Ventures, Dell Technologies Capital, TenEleven Ventures and Vertical Venture Partners. The new round brings JASK’s total funding to $39M.

Ted Schlein, General Partner at Kleiner Perkins said: “With one of the most experienced teams in security operations, JASK understands that the biggest challenge to cybersecurity is human talent. There are not enough people skilled in attacker methods to quickly discern a real threat from a low-risk compromise,” said “Through advanced AI and machine learning, JASK frees security analysts from onerous data review to focus on investigating and responding to the most critical threats, improving efficiency and reducing organizational risk exposure.”

JASK’s mission is to modernise security operations by delivering an asset-independent, open platform that provides prioritised threat information with an autonomous workflow of what, where, why and how SOC analysts should take action. The JASK ASOC platform automates much of the work of a tier one security analyst by correlating and analyzing vast amounts of data and summarizing the important information via JASK Insights, streamlined notifications that indicate a combination of events or activities that should be investigated. JASK Insights contains all of the information in one actionable interface to help speed investigation and response times.

“Over the past 20 years, the challenge of sifting through the deluge of alerts has been like finding the needle in a haystack,” said Greg Martin, CEO and co-founder of JASK. “SOC teams now deal with a stack of needles and need to find the sharpest one. Technology can no longer hinder them, but rather support their workflows and improve their efficiency. Our Series B funding and partnership with Ted and Kleiner Perkins will help us accelerate our mission to deliver this technology.”

Using AI and machine learning, the JASK ASOC platform is built for broader and smarter data ingestion to reduce the costs and bandwidth demands of outdated SIEM data storage models, while adding important context from all attack vectors, users, devices, networks, applications and third-party integrations. The company sees growth in the finance sector as important not just for itself but for the sector itself, particularly as more high-profile and larger attacks are being reported.

JASK also announced that Kleiner Perkins General Partner, Ted Schlein, joined the company’s board of directors.

The company will continue its focus on platform development, increase hiring in all departments and expand global sales channels.
