Vicarius lands $30M for its AI-powered vulnerability detection tools

The Round, at Double Their Previous Valuation, Brings Vicarius’ Total Raised to ~$56.7 million

If the pitches reaching my inbox are any indication, one of the hot new things in generative AI is “copilots” for cybersecurity. Microsoft has one. Google, too. So does Vicarius, the vulnerability remediation platform — recently, it launched a text-generating AI tool, vuln_GPT, that helps write system breach detection and remediation scripts.

Perhaps it’s Vicarius’ trend following that caught investors’ attention — as well as (I’d wager to guess) the startup’s 5x year-over-year growth. Vicarius co-founder and CEO Michael Assraf tells me that the company’s customer base recently eclipsed 400 brands, including PepsiCo, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Equinix.
