About Zafran

Zafran is the First Risk and Mitigation Platform to fight threat exploitation. Zafran transforms risk mitigation by connecting to both vulnerability data and the organization’s security controls. The platform analyzes risk while considering controls’ efficacy as well as exploitability factors, then proactively automates mitigations to eliminate the exploitation window. Backed by Sequoia and Cyberstarts, we empower security teams to mobilize existing security controls and defuse threat exploitation beyond patching
