November 15, 2016 (HERNDON, Va.) – MACH37 Cyber Accelerator today announced that Atomicorp, Inc., a developer of industry leading solutions for the protection and support of cloud servers and Internet of Things devices, has closed a $1 million seed investment round led by Blu Venture Investors. This funding will enable Atomicorp to continue to execute on its growth plans to expand the company and support its growing customer base.
Atomicorp is a Spring 2015 graduate of the MACH37 Cyber Accelerator program. Founded by CEO Michael Shinn and CTO Scott Shinn, the company’s software defined security technology protects devices from a wide range of zero day security threats through system immunization, intelligent self-learning, attack surface reduction, virtual patching and self-healing, all in a solution that requires minimal configuration and is easy to install.
“Atomicorp has a ground-breaking technology that we think will change the game for cyber attackers. The technology is proven and they’ve already acquired a large customer base in a short period of time,” said Steven Chen, Partner at Blu Venture Investors. “We’re thrilled to support Atomicorp’s continued growth and technology innovation with this funding round.”
Both Shinn brothers worked at the White House in security 20 years ago and combined it with their experience working with federal agencies and cloud providers to build the company. Today, Atomicorp has over 2000 customers in all sectors including large enterprise customers, universities, consumer products manufacturers, medical device makers and the US government.
“We knew pretty early on that the Shinn brothers were going to have a very successful startup that would exceed our expectations,” said Rick Gordon, Managing Partner at MACH37, also an investor in Atomicorp. “Most of today’s security defenses can’t keep up with sophisticated cyber-attacks and that problem will never go away. However, Atomicorp has a disruptive solution that is proven to make a difference for over 2000 customers. We’re proud to be a part of the company’s growth and look forward to its success.”
Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Chantilly, VA, Atomicorp is the developer of industry leading solutions for the protection and support of cloud, virtual, and dedicated systems and Internet of Things devices. Today, Atomic Secured Linux is recognized as the only product of its type in existence and incorporates numerous exclusive security functions and methodologies.
