Aorato raises $10 million
Israeli cyber-security startup Aorato has raised $10 million in funding from Accel Partners, Mickey Boodaei (Imperva and Trusteer co-founder), Rakesh Loonkar (Trusteer co-founder), Innovation Endeavors, and Glilot Capital Partners.
Aorato has designed a context-aware, behavior-based Directory Services Application Firewall (DAF). Aorato spun out of the Cyber Security unit within the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Aorato was founded by Idan Plotnik (CEO), Michael Dolinsky (VP of R&D), and Ohad Plotnik (VP of Professional Services).
“The timing could not be more appropriate to launch Aorato into the cybersecurity market. 2013 showed the world the risks of advanced threats in parallel to the implications of insiders’ access to sensitive corporate data. Both proved the need for a technology like Aorato to make a difference within the enterprise security posture,” stated Idan Plotnik, CEO of Aorato.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry.
