HYAS, a threat intelligence startup that specializes in mapping and blocking the command and control infrastructure of malicious hackers, announced it has closed out its Series B round with $16 million in new funding.

The new round was led by S3 Ventures, with additional financial support from Uncorrelated Ventures, Tightline Holdings, the Cyber Mentor Fund and Dcode Capital. As part of the deal, S3 Ventures Partner Charlie Plauche will get a seat on the board of directors.

HYAS offers threat intelligence services, but the company’s calling card revolves around two tools, called Insight and Protect, that pull around 3 billion data points about adversary infrastructure every day from various sources on the internet and third-party data brokers. Those data points are then fed into a data lake where a correlation engine identifies risky or presumed IP addresses or possible command and control servers that an organization’s IT assets, (whether a laptop, a phone, or “an IoT-connected coffee pot”) should not be communicating with and blocks them in the real time.
