Rhebo GmbH, a Leipzig, Germany-based provider of a platform to automate real-time monitoring of data traffic in industrial control networks, raised a venture capital funding round of undisclosed amount.
Backers included TGFS (Technologiegründerfonds Sachsen) and eCapital AG.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations.
Co-founded by Klaus Mochalski (CEO), Martin Menschner (CTO) and Frank Stummer (Business Development), Rhebo provides a software platform (“Industrial Protector”) that monitors and analyzes the content of data packets exchanged among machines using Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and then automatically learns the pattern of regular data traffic. Any deviation (e.g. external attack, pending breakdown) results in a real-time notification of the user, so appropriate steps can be taken accordingly to reduce, or avoids, down time of industrial control mechanisms.
