Mumbai-based InfiSecure, a real-time bot detection and protection platform, has raised $600,000 in seed funding from IDG Ventures and Axilor Ventures. The company plans to use the funds for research, technology investment and overseas expansion.
Founded in March 2016 by Abhilash Pandey and Sandeep Singh, InfiSecure is a robust bot protection platform that sanitises a website’s traffic and improves business metrics using a 24×7 active SaaS solution. InfiSecure gives businesses insights about their bot traffic and eliminates bad, unwanted or suspicious behaviour in real-time.
Abhilash Pandey, an IIM-Calcutta alumnus and Founder at InfiSecure said, “There cannot be a more relevant time for InfiSecure’s bot protection platform than now, when bots constitute more than half of the global internet traffic. With evolving technologies, bot frauds have reached new heights, negatively impacting every online business in more ways than ever before. With InfiSecure, we help businesses keep their websites secured so that they can focus on their core businesses.”
“The platform is built on a very scalable architecture that is reshaping the bot protection industry. With strong focus on big data and machine learning technologies, we would remain a technology-first and innovation driven company. Our strong focus on R&D has led us to acquire many global customers who were looking for the ‘right’ bot protection for their websites. R&D will remain a focus point for us in the next year post the current funding round”, said Ashish Kumar Singh, CTO at InfiSecure.
