Security Startup Lands CIT Funding

Kaprica Security has a new $100,000 check in hand from Virginia's seed backer, CIT's GAP Funds. The Great Falls, Va.-based startup will use the money to commercialize a secure smartphone charger for Android users. Its Skorpion product scans the phone's operating system and apps for malware and rootkits while it charges. A red light on the charger will go on if malicious behavior is detected and offer ways to fix it. CEO Doug Britton says the product is in the later stages of development through a partnership with Belkin and will eventually sell to government, enterprise, and foreign markets. (It's also one more reason for us to feel dumb when you forget to charge our phone.)
