HP Installing Malware Protection by Israeli Startup Deep Instinct on All PCs
CTech – HP will be installing malware protection software by Tel Aviv-based Deep Instinct on its newest line of personal computers, the two companies announced Tuesday. While the financial details of the deal were not disclosed, a person familiar with the matter who spoke to Calcalist on condition of anonymity said the deal is valued at $150 million over a four-year period.
Just as each HP personal computer comes equipped with an Intel processor, each new HP computer will come installed with Deep Instinct’s technology, Deep Instinct CEO Guy Caspi told Calcalist in a Monday interview.
Dubbed HP Sure Sense, Deep Instinct’s deep learning-based predictive threat prevention software works both on and offline. Deep Instinct’s technology enables real-time cyber protection across all endpoints, servers, mobile devices, and operating systems, Caspi said.
Founded in 2015, Deep Instinct employs 130 people, approximately 80 of which are in Israel, Caspi said. The company has raised $64 million to date from investors including Nvidia, and Deep Instinct’s customers include Air Asia, as well as several governments, according to company statements.
