Surefire Cyber, focusing on incident response services within the cyber insurance ecosystem, has launched after raising $10m in Series A infusion.

The funding round was led by Forgepoint Capital, an early-stage venture capital firm that focuses on cybersecurity.

Surefire Cyber’s end-to-end incident response services is designed to help cyber insurers, brokers and legal firms address cybercrimes including email compromise and ransomware.

The company aims to work with clients and partners to manage a cyber event. It also plans to offer capabilities to increase their cyber resiliency.

Surefire Cyber CEO and founder Billy Gouveia said: “Our delivery of end-to-end digital forensics and incident response capabilities is built on a tech-enabled framework and delivered through a platform that aligns and connects an organisation’s executives, technical team, insurance carrier, and legal counsel.”

A purpose-built response firm, Surefire Cyber’s tech-enabled platform is said to speed up decision making, boost transparency, and lower business interruption.
