Misinformation and disinformation content has continued to increase across social media channels, and its effects have impacted every type of organization, from the public to private organizations. A Tel Aviv, Israel-based startup called Cyabra has built a SaaS platform that measures authenticity and impact within the online conversation, detects false information and its authors, and further analyzes it to connect the dots.  

The startup announced it has closed a $5.6 million Series A round as it releases several new disinformation detection analysis tools that help to increase authentic conversations, consumer influence, trends and the success and reputation of companies. Its Series A round brings the total raised to $7.6 million.
