“After adopting Bot Defender and experiencing the immediate impact it had on their security posture, our customers asked us to help secure their assets from additional expanding threats, enhancing our out-of-band scalable platform,” CEO Omri Iluz said in a press release. “This new funding, plus our rapidly growing revenue … will allow us to expand our platform by leveraging collective insights to defend customers against a much broader range of threat types.”

PerimterX has recently expanded its products’ capabilities with enhanced blocking for its Code Defender to reduce the risk of client-side data breaches. It added protection for account takeover attacks, a new verification to give customers choices beyond visual CAPTCHA, and a unified user dashboard to proactively manage new and emerging threats. It also further expanded its ecosystem with new and enhanced integrations–including with Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, Snyk, DataDog and Splunk–to continue enabling customers to integrate anywhere as they evolve their infrastructure due to the accelerated pace of digital transformation.
