Pune: Cybersecurity startup SubCom (Subconscious Compute) said that it has raised $1 million investment in a seed-funding round from YourNest Venture Capital, ISV Capital and an existing investor, Entrepreneur First. The round also saw participation from Bikky Khosla, Chairman TradeIndia, Varun Alagh, Founder, MamaEarth, Harjot Gill, Founder, FluxNinja & Netsil, and some senior executives from Google, Netflix & Visa.
Founded in December 2020 by Anter Virk and Dilawar Singh, SubCom provides endpoint observability through ‘Habituation Neural Fabric.’ This AI-driven technology allows users to observe and manage the Trust Score of their endpoints like laptops, mobile phones, and IoT devices in real-time.
“End-users and endpoints are the weakest links in the cybersecurity chain today. Covid-19 increased the threat landscape for endpoints, and ransomware threats are growing exponentially. With SubCom, users can see the endpoint trust score, adopt recommended measures to harden security, and observe and mitigate threats like ransomware and zero-day in real-time.” said Anter Virk, Co-founder & CEO, SubCom.
Similar to biological intelligence, SubCom’s Habituation Neural Fabric learns to differentiate between actual threats and safe signals, said the company. It is adept at processing volumes of data on the endpoint itself and picking up anomalies with unprecedented precision in real-time. SubCom quickly analyses, classifies, and quantifies the detected irregularities into a simple, easily understood Trust Score for the user, it said.
“While cybersecurity is essential to protect any operations in any business, cybersecurity assurance remains an elusive goal since it is not the core competency of most organizations. SubCom’s Habituation Neural Fabric is a game-changer, helping everyone tackle an Internet that remains weaponized by anonymous hackers with ephemeral footprints.” said Ranjeet Shetye, Partner, Yournest Venture Capital.
