Greenbelt-based Cybrary, a free online cybersecurity training course provider, announced on Tuesday that it has raised $1.3 million in seed funding. The new influx of cash comes on top of $400,000 raised this time last year.
The round was led by Arthur Ventures and Ron Gula, founder and chairman of Tenable Network Security, with Baltimore-based Inner Loop Capital and other previous investors also participating.
According to a press release, Cybrary is “the largest cybersecurity community on the Internet,” boasting more than 550,000 users. The company aims to combat the lack of cybersecurity talent by lowering the barrier to entry with free educational resources.
“With this latest financing, we intend to focus on product development to improve the learning experience for Cybrary users and introduce new features that will help drive greater comprehension and adoption of the concepts and training we provide,” Ryan Corey, cofounder of Cybrary, said in a statement.
