Along with their startup funding announcement, AaDya is launching a new product, Marzo4, which has been in beta testing since June. To fill a gap in the cybersecurity marketplace, Marzo4 is focused on smaller companies.

“If you look at what's transpired over the last 20 years, we forgot a very substantial group of customers, which are small and medium-sized businesses," Raffaele Mautone, founder and CEO of AaDya told Crain's. "There was this belief that they weren't mature, they didn't have enough money, they didn't understand. . . . This is a huge market that is underserved."

Marzo4 also features an AI-powered security assistant, “Judy,” who helps with easy login, password management, anti-phishing, and endpoint protection.

“AaDya’s formula for success begins with a genuine desire to help our SMB customers succeed,” said Mautone. “We are confident we can transform the industry by delivering an accessible cybersecurity solution that goes above and beyond to provide the freedom and confidence to focus on what they do best.”

The new capital AaDya raised will help them grow their team from 20 employees to 35 by the end of next year. Yes, they are hiring, and they’re one of the best startups in Detroit to work at.
