Seculert, cloud-based security service, provides access to its advanced persistent threat (APT) data through the Seculert API. Seculert provides an unmatched level of security above hardware and traditional software protection by actively searching the entire web and internal networks for threats. Developers can feed data collected by the APT product to other security devices (e.g. firewalls, SIEMs, proxies, etc.). Seculert CEO, Dudi Matot, explained:

"Seculert is the only malware detection solution that intercepts and collects data from within live botnets. Our unique solution automatically finds malware that has bypassed existing legacy security measures anywhere in the organization, including laptops, mobile devices and remote employees."

Seculert remains in start up mode but boasts of an impressive customer base that includes Harvard University, BP, 888 Holdings, and other high profile customers. It should come as no surprise that Seculert just closed a $10 million round of series B funding. The new funding will fuel continued innovation in groundbreaking, realtime security products.

The Seculert API uses REST protocol and returns calls in an XML, JSON, or CSVdata format. Wherever the API is integrated, Seculert continually uncovers newly detected malware from its expansive search. For more information, visit the API site.

A proactive security practice has become mandatory to adequately secure networks in today's web-based world. Hackers and cybercriminals continue to advance; thus, administrators must actively search for new threats. By its very nature, Seculert seeks out threats and through its REST API shares data with critical network devices.
