Hubble Technology banks $9 million for asset visibility platform

0

An early-stage Virginia startup has banked $9 million in venture capital funding to create “agentless technology asset visibility” aimed at disrupting the asset management space.

Hubble Technology, the brainchild of AIG Deputy CISO Tom Parker, said seed-stage funding was led by Paladin Capital Group. Leading venture capital firm Accel and CrowdStrike’s Falcon Fund also invested.

The company says it is building a technology intelligence platform capable of providing end-to-end visibility into enterprise assets and tools to help defenders reduce and manage business risk.

“Ineffective asset visibility exposes organizations to unmeasurable IT and operational risks,” Parker said in a note announcing the investment. “A key requirement for any effective digital transformation is the ability to understand your existing technology stack and security controls.”

He said Hubble sets itself apart from the crowded cyber-asset management marketplace by providing end-to-end visibility into an organization’s entire digital presence.

“[The platform] builds a map of a customer’s entire technology domain, from the software supply chain to an organization’s employees and their roles,” Parker said. “Having an accurate and constantly updated asset map is essential for providing operators with the information they need to make informed decisions – and for leaders to plan effectively.”

Parker said the new funding will be used to expand its engineering operations and scale the business to support the company’s global ambitions.

The attack surface management space has garnered considerable investor interest in recent years with companies like CyCognito, Bit Discovery, Cyberpion, Censys, Rumble all raising millions of dollars to help businesses find and secure digital assets.
