Our Founding

In 2013, Picus Security pioneered Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) technology and has helped companies improve their cyber resilience since then.

Established by cybersecurity veterans, Picus Security developed transformative security validation innovations for end-to-end attack readiness, visibility, and effortless mitigation to pre-empt cyber attacks across all cyber defense layers. The Picus Security Validation Platform transforms security practices by correlating, prioritizing, and validating exposures across siloed findings – so teams can focus on critical gaps and high-impact fixes. With Picus, security teams can quickly take action with one-click mitigations to stop more threats with less effort.


Early Growth and Funding

In 2013 Picus Security embarked on their journey with a vision to challenge cybersecurity norms. Recognizing that more spending doesn’t equal better security, Picus aimed to redefine effectiveness. In 2019, Gartner recognized Picus as a cool vendor, and a Series-A investment led by Earlybird solidified industry prominence.

Series B Funding

In October 2021, Picus Security secured a $27 million Series B funding round led by Turkven, with participation from Earlybird Venture Capital and Mastercard. This investment, totaling $35 million, fueled global expansion, reinforcing its position as a leader in Breach and Attack Simulation and paving the future with a new Security Validation Platform.
