With offices in San Francisco, Boston and Tel Aviv, Fortscale has developed machine learning-based user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) for security. The company was founded by CEO Idan Tendler and COO Dr. Yona Hollander.

The funding will be used in multiple capacities, as Fortscale enters its next phase of growth.

Additionally, the funding will contribute to the ongoing development of Fortscale’s evolving product line.

Tendler said, “2017 is shaping up to be a momentous year for Fortscale with the release of Presidio and the continued expansion of our global business operations. We are proud and grateful to have the support of the investment community who understand the importance of our ongoing mission to stop insider threats faster and more effectively than ever before.”
