Picnic Corporation raises Series A extension funding to advance its human attack surface management solution
Picnic Corporation, the creators of the industry’s first automated enterprise-wide human attack surface management platform, announced today the completion of an extension of its Series A funding, led by Energy Impact Partners and Bright Pixel (former Sonae IM) with continued participation from existing investors Crosslink Capital and Rally Ventures. In this round, Picnic added new venture investment from Red Shepherd Venture and strategic individuals such as Chris Key, former Chief Product Officer of Mandiant and the founder of Verodin. With this financing, Picnic’s total funding has eclipsed $20 million.
Picnic emerged from stealth early last year with the first platform of its kind designed to prevent social engineering attacks and initial access by disrupting attacker Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) reconnaissance on companies and their employees. The company’s technology platform continues to deliver security outcomes to customers that directly reduce the risk of social engineering attacks, which remain the #1 attack vector for threat actors.
Picnic Corporation is an innovative cybersecurity firm that provides enterprises with the capability to manage their external human attack surface and to detect, prevent, and protect against social engineering and credential stuffing attacks. Picnic’s platform automatically emulates threat actor reconnaissance on the public data footprint of an organization and its people for defensive purposes. Our technology continuously monitors and reduces company and employee OSINT exposure, commonly leveraged for social engineering and initial access, preemptively disrupts attacker reconnaissance and resource development, and proactively neutralizes human risk beyond the corporate perimeter to prevent organizational compromise.
