Deep Instinct made the investment includes issuance of new equity and acquisition of shares from existing shareholders.
With the capital injection, the company hopes to expand its go-to-market capabilities and bolster its research and development efforts.

Deep Instinct, which was founded in 2015, leverages an artificial brain to detect any type of cyber threat, prevent them and analyse the attacks.
Chrysalis co-portfolio manager Richard Watts said, “We have spent considerable time analysing the cybersecurity landscape and believe that Deep Instinct has developed best-in-class technologies.
“Deep Instinct’s cybersecurity platform utilises end-to-end deep learning to specialise in threat prevention, making it the most efficient and effective cybersecurity framework in the market. This technology, focused on prediction and prevention, is likely to be hugely disruptive, given its advantages over more prevalent Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions.”
