The Tel Aviv company's Bot Defender uses behavioral fingerprinting technology to defend websites from automated attacks.

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.

With bot attacks becoming more targeted, in-depth and dynamic, PerimeterX has developed a new approach to threat detection based on smart technology which leverages dynamic behavior fingerprints based on hundreds of indicators profiling the user, their browser and network, instead of using historical signatures of bad bots, which are static and quickly become outdated. Unlike other security solutions which place a proxy between a customer and a website adding latency and complexity to the network, PerimeterX can detect and stop any automated threats with integration that is as simple as adding a JavaScript tag. Bot attacks to websites include zero-day threats, brute force, price scraping, content scraping, layer 7 Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), ad fraud and scalping.

Iluz said, Bot Defenders behavioral fingerprinting provides the most comprehensive protection against automated threats, and weve 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 companys needs. PerimeterX is an out-of-band service that doesnt affect delivery performance and is compatible with a customers currently deployed infrastructure including any content delivery network (CDN) or cloud infrastructure.
