Halcyon Closes $50 Million in Series A

by Kay Aloha Villamor in April 21st, 2023

Halcyon, an Austin, Texas-based company that provides a cyber resilience platform, announced that it closed $50 million in Series A funding.

The round was led by SYN Ventures, with additional investment from Dell Technologies Capital, Corner Ventures, and other strategic investors. 

The funding will accelerate the development and adoption of the Halcyon cyber resilience platform, the first of its kind designed from day one to defeat ransomware and extortion campaigns.

“When setting out to build Halcyon, we started with the premise that all cybersecurity solutions are inevitably bypassed,” said Jon Miller, CEO, and Co-Founder, of Halcyon. “We engineered Halcyon to embrace failure as a core concept of protection. Stopping ransomware requires multiple prevention and detection techniques, all trained extensively on years of actual ransomware attacks. This funding positions us to rapidly scale our mission of making ransomware unprofitable and enable resilient enterprises around the world.”

Halcyon is the first solution designed specifically to defeat ransomware, with tools for preventing initial intrusion, disrupting attacks in progress, and immediately reversing the effects of ransomware in the event of a successful attack.
