NeuraLegion Secured $4.7 Million in Funding

 In Israel

NeuraLegion, an Israel based appli­ca­tion secu­ri­ty plat­form enabling DevOps pro­fes­sion­als, devel­op­ers, and appli­ca­tion secu­ri­ty spe­cial­ists to secure web appli­ca­tions and APIs, has now secured $4.7 mil­lion in seed fund­ing.

NeuraLegion is found­ed by the Shoham Cohen, Bar Hofesh, Art Linkov, and Gadi Bashvitz in the year 2018. It pro­vides a plat­form improv­ing appli­ca­tion secu­ri­ty by pro­vid­ing a )-false pos­i­tive, AI-sup­port­ed DAST & Fuzzer solu­tions that are pur­pose-built for modern devel­op­ment envi­ron­ments.

The solu­tions inte­grate into DevOps envi­ron­ments and enable users to run DAST scans as a part of their CI/CD pipeline to iden­ti­fy a broad set of known and unknown secu­ri­ty vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties.

The com­pa­ny has offices in London, Tel Aviv, and San Francisco.

Executive Opinion

Shoham Cohen, Co-Founder, and CEO of NeuraLegion, said, “NeuraLegion is ratio­nal­iz­ing appli­ca­tion secu­ri­ty for modern devel­op­ment orga­ni­za­tion. We’re enabling devel­op­ers, QA pro­fes­sion­als & appli­ca­tion secu­ri­ty spe­cial­ists to secure their appli­ca­tions and APIs early in the devel­op­ment process, elim­i­nat­ing hours of wasted time look­ing into detect­ed false pos­i­tives. To opti­mize secu­ri­ty and speed, reme­di­a­tions and fixes become a native part of an engi­neers’ work­flow; that can be accessed through the com­mand line, exist­ing devel­op­ment ecosys­tems (CI/CD tools such as Jenkins, Azure Devops, or CircleCl), tick­et­ing sys­tems such as Jira, or through con­soles”
Hiro Rio Maeda, the Managing Partner at DNX Ventures, said, “Along with increas­ing pres­sure on DevOps to deploy soft­ware faster, secu­ri­ty threats to enter­pris­es are rising sig­nif­i­cant­ly. The only way to solve this prob­lem is to imple­ment an auto­mat­ed, low fric­tion (for DevOps) and 0‑false pos­i­tive secu­ri­ty test­ing solu­tion. The DAST market has been long stalled with­out any inno­v­a­tive approach­es. NeuraLegion’s next-gen­er­a­tion plat­form intro­duces a new way of con­duct­ing robust test­ing in today’s modern CI/CD envi­ron­ment.”

NeuraLegion’s Latest Funding

The round was backed by the DNX Ventures, with par­tic­i­pa­tion from J‑Ventures, Fusion Fund, and Incubate Fund.

The com­pa­ny, as of now, has plans to use the new funds to scale its solu­tion. It will allow the com­pa­ny to devel­op on top of the modern plat­form. The com­pa­ny also intends to build one of the best dynam­ic appli­ca­tion secu­ri­ty test­ing (DAST) across dis­cov­ery, detec­tion, speed, and 0‑false pos­i­tives, notes the announcement.

NeuraLegion is launch­ing a self-serve prod­uct for devel­op­ers to sign up in a matter of min­utes.
