IntSights, a Herzliya, Israel-based intelligence driven security provider for cyber threats from the dark, deep and open web, completed a $7.5M Series A funding round.
The round was led by Blumberg Capital with participation from seed investor Glilot Capital Partners as well as Blackstone, Wipro Ventures, the strategic investment arm of Wipro Limited, and additional private investors. Following the deal, the IntSights board of directors includes Nizan, Arvatz, Kobi Samboursky and Arik Kleinstein of Glilot Capital Partners, as well as Jay Leek of Blackstone and David Blumberg of Blumberg Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its presence in the United States with a focus on marketing and sales in addition to new strategic hires in both the U.S. and Israel.
Co-founded by Guy Nizan, Alon Arvatz and Gal Ben-David, IntSights provides an intelligence solution that automatically detects cyber threats in real time, in open, deep and darknet platforms, aggregates the information and presents it to the customer in a single view.
The company’s data mining algorithm and machine learning capabilities are used to analyze, categorize and prioritize this information, and then react by enabling quick remediation of the identified threat. This information is automatically transferred to the relevant security product (i.e. Firewall) in order to make the adjustments and block new threats.
