Command Zero Emerges From Stealth Mode to Speed Up Cyber Investigations

Command Zero, a startup leveraging automation and AI to improve the speed and accuracy of cybersecurity investigations, today emerged from stealth mode with $21 million in seed funding.

Founded in 2021, the Austin, Texas-based startup has built an autonomous and user-led cyber investigation platform to help security operations teams and analysts better interpret responses from data sources.

According to Command Zero, investigations are a bottleneck in security operations today, as attackers are adopting technology innovations faster than defenders. 

Manually dissecting complex incidents becomes an impossible, resource-depleting task for most organizations, the startup says, but its platform can deliver knowledge, processes, and tools to help security teams streamline investigations, improve outcomes, and run threat hunts around the clock.

Command Zero’s platform combines curated expert investigative questions and autonomous and user-led methods in a federated data model and leverages automation and advanced Language Learning Models (LLMs) to augment human investigations.

The solution interprets each question and response, generating timelines and end-to-end reports and helping analysts to interpret answers and figure out what occurred.

“Command Zero removes technology expertise barriers, dramatically reduces repetitive manual work and speeds up investigations. Improving institutional knowledge, automation and consistent outcomes are transforming how organizations run threat hunting and investigations at scale,” Command Zero co-founder and CEO Dov Yoran said.

The investment round was led by Andreessen Horowitz, with additional support from Insight Partners and more than 60 angel investors.
