Partnership and strategic investment continues strong history of helping emerging cybersecurity companies enter the U.S. corporate and federal markets

TYSONS, Va. & TEL AVIV, Israel — June 15, 2021Merlin Ventures, the strategic investment arm of Merlin Cyber, a premier cybersecurity solutions provider with deep expertise in the U.S. market, today announced a strategic partnership and investment that was closed at the beginning of the year with Cyolo, developer of a true Zero Trust Network Architecture (ZTNA) solution. Together, Merlin and Cyolo will enable U.S. businesses and federal agencies to better strengthen their security posture and secure digital assets in their own distributed clouds.

Through its partnership with Merlin, Cyolo can now help agencies comply with the recent “Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity” that includes a 60-day requirement to define a Zero Trust Architecture. Further, the order aims to accelerate the development of secure cloud services and establish a blueprint for Zero Trust, which is precisely what Cyolo offers.

“A key tenet of Cyolo’s Zero Trust model is that the customer controls all encryption keys; Cyolo has no visibility into customer data,” said Seth Spergel, Managing Partner at Merlin Ventures. “We were attracted by Cyolo’s easy-to-use Zero Trust security solution, which allows our customers to keep security operations firmly under their own control. Given what we’re seeing in regards to remote work trends and specific cyber needs, we feel our goals align very well with Cyolo’s capabilities.”

This partnership will allow Cyolo to bring added value and new cloud-based resources to Merlin’s customers. Cyolo integrates with any identity provider and enforces Zero Trust connectivity for both modern and legacy applications. The platform scales without changes to the existing infrastructure, providing a seamless security solution at all levels of the enterprise.

“In a world where threat vectors are everywhere, we’ve developed an easy-to-deploy model where customers can control their own secrets without needing to trust any third-party vendors,” said Almog Apirion, CEO and Co-Founder of Cyolo. “We’re eager to bring our cyber expertise to Merlin and its customers, and give them real Zero Trust access capabilities and the ability to create their own distributed cloud to simplify complex environments. We are confident that our strong connection with Shay Michel, who is leading the Merlin office in Tel Aviv, and Seth will contribute to the ongoing success of both companies.”

Cyolo brings a multitude of cloud security benefits to its customers including CISOs, CIOs, Security & IT Managers, SASE providers, and MSSPs. Cyolo partners can use Cyolo’s SaaS platform or create their own, allowing them to build out a fully customizable strategy that best fits their needs.

Discussions around the partnership began late last year and were closed after Merlin Ventures opened its office in Israel this past January. Merlin has a strong history of helping some of the world’s most successful cybersecurity companies enter the U.S. market, and Cyolo is poised to be next.

Merlin Ventures Unveils Public Sector Growth Program for Cybersecurity Startups

Turnkey program enables visionary cybersecurity startups to leverage Merlin’s capital, FedRAMP certification accelerator, and go-to-market infrastructure to rapidly expand into the U.S. Public Sector

TYSONS CORNER, Va. (BUSINESS WIRE)Merlin Ventures, the investment arm of Merlin Cyber, today announced the formation of a Public Sector growth program for cybersecurity software-as-a-service (SaaS) startups. The program leverages Merlin Ventures capital, engineering lab, FedRAMP certification acceleration process, and Public Sector relationships to help startups tap into a $200 billion Public Sector IT solutions market.

The clamor for enhanced cybersecurity protection within U.S. federal, state, and local governments has never been greater, as cybersecurity attacks continue to increase in frequency, volume, and sophistication. This is spawning the emergence of highly disruptive cybersecurity technologies. However, the complexity for startup companies navigating the U.S. Public Sector limits the ability for government agencies to access innovative technology solutions. Merlin Ventures bridges this gap with its program that equips cybersecurity startups with:

  • Capital: Up to $5M in funding for Series A or B stage companies that are market-ready
  • FedRAMP acceleration: Turnkey FedRAMP certification accelerator that enables startups to achieve authority to operate (ATO) faster and more cost-effectively
  • Engineering: Top cybersecurity engineers help ensure solution alignment with U.S. Public Sector customer requirements and needs
  • Go-to-market infrastructure: Sales executives and digital marketing resources with deep relationships help extend reach to U.S. Public Sector customers

Government agencies’ move to the cloud is driving the need for enhanced security and increased demand for cybersecurity SaaS technologies that meet FedRAMP requirements. FedRAMP provides a standardized approach to security for the cloud. “It can take up to two years and two million dollars for a company to become FedRAMP certified,” said Seth Spergel, Managing Partner of Merlin Ventures. “With our program, we take companies there in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost. This is not only a game-changer for most companies, especially startup companies, but it’s also a game-changer for U.S. Public Sector agencies. We are making it simpler for government agencies to access the innovative cybersecurity solutions they need to minimize risk.”

Merlin Ventures CEO David Phelps commented, “The U.S. government is the largest market in the world, but it’s incredibly complex to navigate if you’re an emerging company. Our 25-plus years of experience in the Public Sector can now be leveraged by innovative cybersecurity startups to help them expedite FedRAMP certification and propel them into the U.S. Public Sector.”

Cyber Observer’s Latest Release Provides New Visibility Into Cybersecurity Risk Posture

Premier Continuous Controls Monitoring platform empowers enterprises with continuous, unified visibility of security tool effectiveness on-premises and in-cloud

TEL AVIV, Israel & TYSONS CORNER, Va. –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Cyber Observer, the premier Continuous Controls Monitoring (CCM) solution, today announced a major enhancement to its platform that enables CISOs and other security and risk management executives to obtain new, continuous, unified visibility into the effectiveness of cybersecurity tools that are implemented throughout their enterprise. By continuously retrieving and analyzing Critical Security Controls (CSCs) from applications on-premises and in-cloud, Cyber Observer’s CCM platform simplifies compliance, reduces mean time to detection and response, and advances risk posture management.

Cybersecurity teams are overwhelmed with complexity of managing dozens of disparate security tools that have been implemented across their hybrid enterprises. Despite best efforts to implement security controls to minimize threats and risks, enterprise executives are discovering that misconfigured or malfunctioning tools are too often a blind spot and one of the weakest links in their security defenses. Cyber Observer’s CCM platform eliminates this problem and now enables enterprises to keep a finger on the pulse of how their security tools are performing.

Cyber Observer connects and pulls data from an enterprise’s on-premises and in-cloud tools to create a comprehensive view of the security tools implemented. In addition to continuously analyzing more than 5,000 CSCs and providing controls status in the context of management, compliance requirements and other frameworks, Cyber Observer released a set of new features, including:

Real-time dashboards. Easily demonstrate the status of each tool, status of the different security areas, prioritize vulnerabilities, aggregate risk posture scoring, and alert on deviation from normal behavior.
Continuous reporting. New reporting module automates reports on an organization’s cybersecurity tools status and cyber posture views.
Open API enhancements. Enable enterprises to easily share data collected by Cyber Observer with third-party tools that provide security information and event management (SIEM), automation (SOAR), and artificial intelligence.

“Managing risks requires more than implementing security tools and checking the box,” said Shimon Becker, Cyber Observer Co-founder and VP Product. “It requires continuous monitoring, management, and oversight to ensure that people, processes, and technology are in fact protecting your data and your enterprise.”

“The new release offers quick and easy remote implementation,” said Moti Ram, Cyber Observer Co-founder and VP R&D. “We support hybrid on-premises and in-cloud connectivity and deployment.”

Cyber Observer is backed by Merlin Ventures, which strategically invests in and scales innovative cybersecurity companies. “Things like misconfigured or unpatched security tools are such easy targets for adversaries to exploit,” stated Seth Spergel, Vice President of Emerging Technology at Merlin Ventures. “Implementing a simple solution like Cyber Observer’s Continuous Controls Monitoring platform should really be a part of any organization’s cyber hygiene protocol and a standard practice for all enterprises.”

About Cyber Observer

Cyber Observer is the premier Continuous Controls Monitoring (CCM) solution. CCM reduces business losses and audit costs by leveraging technology that performs continuous monitoring and auditing of Critical Security Controls (CSCs) and applications.

Cyber Observer integrates dozens of the most popular security tools into a single intuitive interface that enables organizations to continuously monitor tool performance and maintain alignment with cybersecurity, business, and regulatory frameworks. Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, Cyber Observer’s continuous, automated reporting equips security and risk management executives with unprecedented visibility, control, and strategic oversight that empowers them to proactively identify and close critical security gaps while demonstrating the effectiveness and maturity of their security programs and investments.

Centerity Recognized for Market-Leading AIOps Platform with Integrated Cyber Security

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) analyst report positions Centerity as a Top Value Leader for delivering Business Impact and IT-to-Business Alignment

NEWTON, MA (October 21, 2020)Centerity Systems, Inc., the leading AIOps Platform with advanced performance analytics and integrated security, today announced its recognition as a Top Value Leader in the latest “EMA Radar Report: AIOps – A Guide for Investing in Innovation.”

EMA evaluated 17 AIOps vendors on (i) Business Impact and IT-to-Business Alignment, (ii) Incident, Performance, and Availability Management, and (iii) Change Impact and Capacity Optimization use cases to guide organizations with their AIOps platform selection. Centerity’s AIOps Platform is designated as a market leader in all of the use cases EMA evaluated. Centerity is a front-runner in delivering exceptional value in both the Business Impact and IT-to-Business Alignment and Incident, Performance, and Availability Management use cases, due to its technical strength, impact on business outcomes, and deployment cost efficiency.  In addition, Centerity was honored by EMA with a special award for advanced integrated security functionality.

The Centerity AIOps Platform improves performance and reliability of business and operational processes, employing an approach that continuously measures the overall health of key technology services by providing real-time, consolidated business analytics. SLA executive dashboards expose business and security risks, identify performance anomalies, and provide fault isolation across applications, operating systems, infrastructure, and cloud assets. It does this by automating topology and dependency maps of all IT assets, incorporating each asset into business and operational service views. Its AI-driven anomaly detection and multi-tenancy support multi-user, multi-vendor, and multi-location management, which is ideal for managed service providers, cloud service providers, and enterprises.

“Centerity is a unique innovator in the AIOps arena,” said Dennis Drogseth, EMA vice president. “Centerity stands out for its advancing use of AI/ML in a variety of contexts, including ‘CyberOps,’ as well as its distinctive strengths in discovery across domains, data assimilation, and unifying views and dashboards. These strengths, along with the platform’s fast time to value and limited administrative overhead all help to make Centerity both a versatile and progressive choice for AIOps adopters.” According to EMA’s evaluation, the Centerity AIOps platform is differentiated among its competitors by:

  • Delivering many of the benefits of larger and more costly AIOps suites with reduced administrative overhead and more modest software costs.
  • Bringing the full seven-layer stack together with an eye toward IT service performance and business outcomes and priorities across cloud, hybrid, and legacy environments.
  • Integrating artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities to support security and risk management needs – such as cybersecurity compliance, endpoint detection and response (EDR), supply chain security, and automated prevention of attacks on network hardware.

According to EMA, the message for IT organizations looking to pursue a forward path in AIOps adoption is overall a strongly positive one. The benefits achieved are growing in diversity and value. AIOps can and should be transformative in enabling more effective decision-making, data sharing, and analytics-driven automation. The recommendation from EMA remains that buyers should consider their own realities, then begin a search for the AIOps platform that most fits their requirements.

“In the digital age, AIOps, security and risk management must be observed and correlated through a single platform,” said Roi Keren, CEO of Centerity Systems. “That’s not only what we see our customers need and want, it’s what Centerity does best. EMA’s positioning of Centerity and award for integrated security acknowledges the convergence of AIOps and security. It’s more critical than ever for enterprise executives – whether you’re a CIO, CISO, CEO, or board member – to make strategic, risk-based business decisions with one platform, one dashboard; in essence, a single source of truth.”

AIOps Deployments and the Real Word: Bringing Operations and Security Together

Enterprises can see how others are deploying AIOps to address a variety of use cases by viewing a live EMA-hosted webcast titled “AIOps Deployments and the Real World: Bringing Operations and Security Together,” which will be held on Tuesday, November 10th at 1:00 pm EST.

Merlin Invests in Wickr to Deliver Secure Communications to Federal Agencies and Highly-Regulated Industries

Partnership will accelerate development and adoption of products and services that protect critical communications and sensitive information

Washington DC –RSA Federal Summit, March 26, 2019– Merlin International, Inc.,a trusted technology provider delivering innovative cybersecurity solutions for highly-regulated industries,today announced a major investment in Wickr Inc.,the only communications platform designed to resist state-level hacking while offering enterprise-grade management and compliance capabilities.The partnership will enable Wickr to leverage Merlin’s experience and resources in bringing cybersecurity technologies to federal agencies and regulated industries.

Wickr, which allows users to securely share text and files, as well as hold secure audio and video conferencing on mobile and desktop platforms, was recently cited in The Forrester New Wave: Secure Communications, Q4 2018report as the leader in the secure communications space. As one of the world’s only end-to-end, secure communications platforms designed to protect sensitive information at all stages of transit, Wickr not only secures messages, but is configured to enable government agencies to fully comply with all relevant legal and regulatory requirements.

“Communication security has become critical for every business and industry, and the federal government is no exception,” said Seth Spergel, Merlin VP of Emerging Technology. “At Merlin, we have been serving government agencies and regulated industries for over 20 years. This new partnership with Wickr will allow us to quickly and easily add their secure tools into our portfolio of cybersecurity solutions and allow organizations to easily collaborate while staying on the right side of data-protection policies.”

Thanks to the partnership with Merlin, federal IT teams will soon be able to quickly and easily deploy and integrate Wickr technologies across their entire enterprise using standard tools such as LDAP, Single Sign-on, Mobile Device Management and others, to securely orchestrate workflows into a single source and modernize communications in house and out to the field. All messaging will be encrypted and in full compliance with federal data protection regulations as well as National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) best practice guidelines.

In addition to secure messaging transport, robust user verification is built into the platform to ensure that government teams are only sharing information with vetted and trusted parties, both inside and outside of government. The use of Wickr technologies provided by Merlin will thus enable agencies to begin compliance with the recently released NIST Special Publication 800-177 (Revision 1) which details how government can begin to secure their communications infrastructure.

“Wickr puts government agencies in full control of any and all data shared through the service and ensures that it remains protected at all times while in transit and at rest,” said Joel Wallenstrom, Wickr CEO. “Full end-to-end encryption is applied to all data streams including messages, files and calls, guaranteeing that Wickr never has access to that information, and can thus serve as a secure black box for all content. Files will never touch transport servers unencrypted and are never stored on Wickr infrastructure.”

With the new partnership agreement in place between Merlin and Wickr, both companies will now concentrate on helping to create and secure end-to-end encrypted infrastructures for federal agencies and other organizations operating in heavily regulated environments.

Wickr and Merlin have also combined to create a series of full day workshops during which industry experts use Wickr’s robust, REST-based APIs to develop custom integrations that extend the functionality of the Wickr platform.  If you’d like to join an upcoming work shop contact
