| < 1 minute read
Bellevue based cybersecurity startup Polyverse raised another $16 million to help sell its software used by government organizations, defense companies, and more. Polyverse’s main product is “Polymorphing for Linux,” which scrambles open-source code without affecting its operation, shielding it from hackers looking to exploit weaknesses in the code.
The startup recently signed a partnership with SUSE, the world’s largest independent open-source software company. It also sells a Polyscripting for WordPress, which aims to remove the three most common attack vectors against the popular content management system.
Last year Polyverse made CNBC’s top 100 startups list. The company is led by CEO Alexander Gounares, a former CTO at AOL, CEO of Concurix, and Microsoft executive.
