PureSec, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based serverless security company, has raised $7m in series A funding.
The round, which brings the company’s total funding to $10m, was led by Square Peg Capital, with participation from previous investors TLV Partners and Entrée Capital.
Founded in 2016, PureSec enables organizations to build secure serverless applications and protect them in real-time. Its proprietary behavioral protection engine provides a trusted serverless computing environment for a user’s functions. It is an intelligent security layer between their serverless application and the underlying platform, which detects and blocks any attempts to subvert function logic or perform malicious actions.
CEO Shaked Zin:“This funding round is a huge vote of confidence in our path to encourage massive adoption of serverless computing by allowing you to innovate with serverless securely, knowing that your serverless application is the most secure application you’ve ever built.”
PureSec serverless security platform provides protection for applications using AWS Lambda, Azure Functions, Google Cloud Functions and IBM Cloud Functions. It claims to ensure that functions are free from risk and safe from threats at every stage of the application lifecycle.
It currently has 12 employees in Tel Aviv and serves numerous Fortune 1000 companies, alongside emerging startups in the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Israel.
The company has also announced the release of a free-tier plan enabling organizations starting their adoption of serverless architectures to freely implement security early on.
The plan aims to help bridge the gap between developers and security professionals by providing a mutual language and a clear standard for securing serverless applications from the get-go. Early joiners will also receive an exclusive advisory session from the serverless security professionals of the PureSec team, tailored to their specific serverless environment.
