Founded in 2015, Deep Instinct develops software that uses artificial intelligence to detect and prevent malware attacks. The company employs a team of 150 people and has raised $100 million to date, Caspi said.
In May, Deep Instinct announced that HP Inc. will be installing its malware protection software on its newest line of personal computers. Since then, HP has sold more than 10 million computers with Deep Instinct’s technology pre-installed onto them, Caspi said.
