ICS Cybersecurity Firm Opscura Launches With $9.4 Million in Series A Funding

Industrial control systems (ICS) cybersecurity company Opscura announced its launch on Tuesday with $9.4 million in Series A funding.

Opscura is a new brand and the company has a new global management team, but it’s not new in the ICS cybersecurity sector. The company was founded in Spain as Enigmedia and it has been around for more than a decade. 

Enigmedia co-founders Gerard Vidal and Carlos Tomás will serve as CTO and VP of engineering at Opscura, respectively. David Hatchell has been named Opscura’s CEO.  

The new funding round, led by Anzu Partners with participation from Dreamit and Mundi Ventures, will be used for the company’s growth and expansion in the United States. 

Opscura provides solutions designed to protect industrial networks by isolating, cloaking and authenticating sensitive assets and data in operational technology (OT) networks. Its cloaking technology obscures deep OT Level 2 network and Layer 2 data without disrupting operations. 

The company says its solutions enable organizations to gain deep OT visibility, provide access control capabilities between IT and OT networks, provide protection for critical legacy endpoints, and help reduce the OT attack surface. 

Opscura says its solutions are designed to complement the offerings of companies such as Nozomi Networks, Claroty and Fortinet. 

The ICS security firm claims to have customers in the transportation, renewable energy, government, manufacturing and chemical sectors.
