6Scan, a company building a website protection suite that comes with automatic detection and fixing of security vulnerabilities, today announced that it has raised an undisclosed amount of capital from YL Ventures, a venture capital firm that invests primarly in Israel and Europe.
I’m told that the round was your ‘typical Series A’ size, and that the company graduated from Venturegeeks, an Israeli Y Combinator clone, where it got its initial funding in April 2011.
The company’s product is still unreleased, but from what I’ve gathered 6Scan will offer a tool that basically functions like a white-hat hacker, monitoring sites for known and unknown threats, that is also able to automatically plug security holes while it’s at it.
The product was designed specifically for website owners with no technical or security knowledge, and will be priced at $10 per month.
YL Ventures managing partner Yoav Andrew Leitersdorf has joined the 6Scan board of directors.
