Cybertonica raises £2 million Series A
Cybertonica, a platform using Machine Learning and AI for delivering authentication to the payments and fintech sector, has raised £2 million in Series A funding.
The round is led by the London-based venture capital firm Force Over Mass Capital (FOMCAP), with the participation of TrueSight Ventures and Springboard.
The funding will be used to extend its product in behavioural analytics ScreenWiZe 2.0 and strengthen the data and AI capabilities of the Anomalytics platform. The company’s London headquarters, and tech teams will grow by 50% in the coming months and it expects to double revenue run rate by June.
