Protego, a Baltimore based developer of a security solution built for serverless, secured $2m in seed funding.
The round was led by Ron Gula of Gula Tech Adventures, Glilot Capital Partners, and the MetroSITE Group of security industry pioneers, including former RSA CTO, Tim Belcher.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to work with customers and partners to broaden its offering and bring the product to market.
Led by Tsion (TJ) Gonen, CEO and Co-Founder, Protego works by continuously scanning a serverless infrastructure, including functions, logs, and databases, to increase the application’s security posture and minimize the attack surface. Using machine-based analysis and deep learning algorithms, the platform builds a model of normal function behavior to detect threats, anomalies, and malicious attacks as they initiate and propagate. It also identifies and prevents attacks in real time and provides the “minimum effective dose” of protection in the right place, maximizing security while minimizing costs.
The company currently has offices in Maryland and Israel.
