Opscura Inc., a provider of ICS cybersecurity solutions, has raised $9.4 million in Series A funding to expand operations and launch a new brand and products. The investment was led by Anzu Partners and supported by Dreamit and Mundi Ventures.
“Together with our partners and talented technical teams, Opscura can help customers move beyond device visibility to protect our critical industrial assets and data,” stated Brian Brammeier, the CEO of Opscura.
Obscura provides industrial cybersecurity for manufacturers, safeguarding against ransomware, unauthorized access and data theft. The company says its patented cloaking technology obscures operational networks and data without disrupting operations.
Opscura is an OT security solution designed for Zero Trust environments and works collaboratively within the ICS security ecosystem. Obscura says its technology complements solutions from Claroty, Nozomi and Fortinet. Customers across various industries use Opscura to address their industrial cybersecurity, compliance and digital transformation needs.
“Opscura addresses multiple ICS use cases, and unlike other offerings, simplifies the processes, people, and technology work involved in protecting critical infrastructure in deeper OT layers,” stated Francesc Juan, the CTO Spain of Schneider.
Opscura has announced its new global management team, with Brian Brammeier as the chief executive officer and Gerard Vidal and Carlos Tomás taking on the roles of chief technology officer and VP of engineering, respectively. Michael Garrison Stuber is the chief product officer, and Allison J. Taylor is the strategic advisor and former interim chief marketing officer.
Opscura has received funding from the government, including grants for research into ultra-low latencyencryption and data communications across industrial devices.
The Opscura team will attend Distributech International in San Diego, running from February 7th – 9th of 2023, and later the S4x23 in Miami, taking place between the 13th-16th.
