Mission Secure Inc. Closes Second Round of Financing to Accelerate Deployment of Cyber Security Technology for Industrial Control Systems

Charlottesville, VA – October 20, 2015 – Mission SecureTM Inc. (MSi), a leading cyber physical system defense company, today announced completion of a second round of financing with existing investors. The investment group includes a private equity firm and several high net worth angel investors. Funds will be used to accelerate deployment of its patent-pending MSi Secure Sentinel Platform technology.

MSi is focused on providing advanced protections for cyber physical systems, in particular industrial control systems that run these important assets, in the energy, defense and transportation sectors.

The company continues building upon five years of research and development started at the University of Virginia and funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. The latest refinements to the MSi technology are focused on next generation cyber defense methods to improve cyber resiliency for critical cyber physical assets. The technology was field-tested through multiple pilot programs over the past 15 months transforming innovative research into a patent-pending hardware and software solution, the MSi Secure Sentinel Platform.

In parallel, the company refined its cyber physical asset assessment methodology by applying it to military systems, cars, autonomous air and ground vehicles and industrial control systems used in the oil and gas industry.
