VentureGeek’s Graduate 6Scan Gets Funded by YL Ventures

sixscan israeli startup logoA few weeks ago we covered 6scan as part of the first graduating class of VentureGeeks, an Israeli startup incubator. The traction paid off as now the company announced the closure of its first financing round.

Today, 6scan (pronounced sixscan) announced it has raised an undisclosed A round led by YL Ventures. Still in stealth mode, 6scan offers a SaaS security protection suite for websites through its main products: 6scan Patrol and 6scan Bodyguard. It acts like a white hat hacker, monitoring sites for known and unknown threats for $10 a month.

Small sites are potentially the most vulnerable,  as the high price of entreprise security solutions like Cisco or Juniper forces small site owners to ignore security altogether. 6scan’s easy to use product and relatively low price point make it a good fit for the smaller sites market (as opposed to big corporate portals), which they estimate is a 300 million sites potential. 6scan plans to target ecommerce platforms and hosting provider as channel partners for growth.

Yoav Leitersdorf will join co-founders Nitzan Miron and Yaron Tal on the board of directors.  This is the 5th investment for YL Ventures, who focuses narrowly on Israeli software startups.
