Israeli cyber security company PerimeterX has raised $12 million. No details were disclosed about the investors.
Based in Tel Aviv and San Mateo, California, PerimeterX provides scalable, behavior-based threat protection technology for the web, cloud and mobile. The company today introduced a new security service: PerimeterX Bot Defender, which uses behavioral fingerprinting technology to accurately detect and defend websites from all types of automated attacks.
The company was founded in late 2014 by CEO Omri Luz, CTO Ido Safruti and CFO Ophir Ashkenazi, all former executives at mobile app acceleration company Cotendo.
Iluz said, “Bot Defender’s behavioral fingerprinting provides the most comprehensive protection against automated threats, and we’ve made it as easy as possible for any company to start using it. PerimeterX deployments already protect more than one billion page views each week, and that number is quickly growing.”
Instead of a “black box” approach that other companies implement, which offers limited reporting and transparency, PerimeterX provides robust reporting for analyzed traffic and threats, giving companies full visibility and control into how and why items are being blocked. Attacks can easily be analyzed by time, risk score, country, IP address, and customer supplied tags, and can be further customized based on a company’s needs. PerimeterX is an out-of-band service that doesn’t affect delivery performance and is compatible with a customer’s currently deployed infrastructure including any content delivery network (CDN) or cloud infrastructure.
