Cybereason founders Lior Div and Yonatan Striem Amit – PR

Seven AI, a new Israeli AI startup, was founded by the people behind Israel’s cybersecurity firm Cybereason, Yonatan Striem-Amit and Lior Div, both veterans of the Israel Defense Forces’ vaunted 8200 intelligence unit. Seven AI just came out publicly with a $36 million raise in a Seed funding round, led by Greylock Partners and joined by CRV and Spark Capital.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Seven AI was valued at more than $100 million in September when Greylock provided it with pre-seed financing.

Founded in 2012 in Israel by CEO Lior Div, CTO Yonatan Striem-Amit, and CVO Yossi Naar – all veterans of the IDF’s 8200 intelligence unit, Cybereason is an Israeli cybersecurity company, which provides protection against cyberattacks to both governments and businesses alike. Alphabet Inc’s Google Cloud unit is one of its backers.

However, Cybereason was hit hard in 2023 as part of the worldwide post-Covid crisis financial crunch. In 2023, the firm lost 90% of its value, after expecting to go public at a valuation of as much as $3.5 billion. Also in 2023, Cybereason was sold to the Japanese firm SoftBank Corp

Founded in Boston at the end of 2023 Seven AI says it is “Reinventing Security Operations through the power of AI.”

“With attackers harnessing the power of AI to unleash unprecedented levels of cyber assaults, the time has come to equip defenders with the same cutting-edge technology,” Seven AI Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Yonatan Striem Amit said. “Our mission is clear: to arm these defenders with AI, turning the tide in the cybersecurity battle.”

As CTO and Co-Founder at Cybereason, Yonatan Striem Amit was “instrumental” in developing the company’s proprietary platform that uncovers malicious operations (Malops™) and reconstructs them into a clear image of cyberattacks in context. This “innovative technology” enables enterprises to discover sophisticated threats early, disrupt them at the stem, and minimize costs and damages.
