Filigran, the creator of OpenCTI, secures $16 million in funding for cutting-edge cybersecurity threat management solution

Paris-based cybersecurity startup Filigran is capitalizing on the success of OpenCTI to build a suite of open-source threat management products. The company has already found some early traction with OpenCTI, its open-source threat intelligence platform. It’s a threat intelligence platform that lets you gather threat data from multiple sources in a single interface. OpenBAS can be used as a standalone product, but it works better if you’re already using OpenCTI as it can use the threat intelligence data in OpenCTI. There will be another two products in Filigran’s eXtended Threat Management (XTM) product suite that focus on data-driven risk analysis and crisis management.

Last November, Credit Karma confirmed to TechCrunch that it had “decided to pause almost all hiring,” citing “revenue challenges due to the uncertain environment.” At that time, the company shared that all Credit Karma verticals had been “negatively impacted by macro uncertainty. Credit Karma experienced further deterioration in these verticals during the last few weeks of the first quarter [of 2022].”In August, Intuit reported that Credit Karma had seen its revenue decline by 9% to $1.6 billion for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2023.
