What Company Is Offering:

CitizenHawk is a leading provider of digital brand management solutions that enable companies to monitor, protect and enforce proper use of their brand online. CitizenHawk’s patent-pending technology identifies instances of cybersquatting that infringe on a company’s trademark, sends notices of fraudulent activity to domain owners, interrupts the flow of money being paid to cybersquatters and automates legal action to get fraudulent sites stopped for good.

CitizenHawk’s mission is to allow companies to protect one of their most valuable assets – their brand – and to reclaim millions in revenues lost through “accidental traffic” currently monetized by fraudulent domain holders through PPC advertising, porn ads, gambling, pop-ups, spyware, affiliate fraud and other spurious means.

How Much They Got From VCs:

CitizenHawk Inc., an Aliso Viejo, Calif.based provider of technology that helps protect brands from cybersquatters, has raised $3 million in Series B funding led by seed backer Maveron.
