Boston cybersecurity startup VulnCheck announced Thursday it raised $3.2 million in seed funding to bolster its product and more than double its team.

VulnCheck was founded in 2021 by Anthony Bettini, who previously led the research team at Tenable. He also founded FlawCheck, which was acquired by Tenable in 2016, and Appthority, which was acquired by Symantec in 2018.

VulnCheck works with large enterprises, government agencies and other cybersecurity solution providers to help them prioritize and address their most pressing vulnerabilities before they are attacked.

The seed round was led by Sorenson Ventures with additional investment from In-Q-Tel, Lux Capital and Aviso Ventures. Several angel investors also joined the round. 

“VulnCheck’s superpower is its ability to discover vulnerability intelligence that other solutions are unable to access, acquire and have no ability to find — which is the key to security since you can’t secure what you don’t know about,” Tony Spinelli, venture partner at Sorenson Ventures, said in a statement. “Its deep and talented team with cross-disciplinary expertise in vulnerability research and exploit development gives them a perspective on the threat landscape that we have not seen anywhere else in the industry.”
