Today, British cybersecurity company Goldilock announces a successful $1.7 million in Seed round funding.
Founded in 2020, the company has a patented, non-IP-controlled hardware approach to cybersecurity. Its solution — Drawbridge — is based on the premise that the only thing truly safe on the internet, paradoxically, is something not on the internet.
It allows users to issue an authenticated remote non-IP command to instantly and physically isolate and ring-fence systems within seconds, from, and to, anywhere on Earth — without using the internet. The asset is then completely safe and un-hackable because it is truly physically disconnected from the network as if a physical drawbridge has been raised.
The company has R&D facilities in the West Midlands. It has undergone incubation via the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre’s joint NCSC For Startups program with Plexal, acceleration via the Ministry of Defence’s Defence and Security Accelerator, and various other programs, including Hub71 in the United Arab Emirates and TechUK.
It was awarded Hardware/Endpoint Device of the Year in the 2023 Technology Reseller Awards.
Goldilock CEO and Founder Tony Hasek shared:
“Goldilock’s Drawbridge is a critical enhancement to any network’s security. It empowers organisations to respond to cyber threats immediately, remotely and without using the internet.
By enabling rapid and true physical containment of attacks, Drawbridge protects critical assets – be they systems or data – mitigates operational disruptions and ensures compliance, while enhancing cybersecurity posture and resilience.”
The funding comes from the Harvard Business School Alumni Angels of Greater NY and New York Angels.
The funds will assist sales and marketing of already commercially available products, emphasising building a top-tier worldwide MSSP partner and Security Vendor channel network.
