Mountain View, California-headquartered At-Bay offers data collection-based risk management and security assessment services. The company, which also has a research and development center in Tel Aviv, was founded in 2016. The company employs 17 people currently.
At-Bay is backed by Hartford, Connecticut-headquartered Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company (HSB), a subsidiary of the Munich Reinsurance Company.
"Cyber insurance is one of the fastest growing and complex markets, yet the incumbents are still currently relying on standardized checklists and irrelevant actuarial data to model risk,” said Mr. Rabois in a statement. “At-Bay is focusing on customized and real-time risk modeling and risk reduction for its customers.”

“Insurance has a key role to play in managing cyber risk, which requires a shift from traditional snapshot underwriting to a year-round risk management partnership,” said At-Bay CEO and Co-Founder Rotem Iram in a statement.
At-Bay intends to use the funding to continue developing its cybersecurity monitoring service, bring its insurance products to market, and hire additional employees.
