Founded in February 2018 by ex-eBay, PayPal and DocuSign security engineer Eoin Hinchy, who was subsequently joined by former eBay and DocuSign colleague Thomas Kinsella, Tines automates many of the repetitive manual tasks faced by security analysts so that they can focus on other high priority work.
To that end, Tines lets companies automate parts of their manual security processes with the help of six software “agents,” with each acting as a multipurpose building block.
If they need a hand, my team works with them to establish how they currently manually carry out tasks, such as identifying and dealing with a phishing attack.
Meanwhile, Tines says it will use the new funding to hire engineers in Dublin who can help improve the platform through R&D, as well as grow its customer base with companies in the U.S. and in Europe.
“Our background is in security so with Tines, we’ve initially focused on helping security teams automate their repetitive, manual processes,” says Hinchy.
