The 10 Coolest Big Data Startups Of 2013


Fortscale

CEO: Idan Tendler

Fortscale is developing cybersecurity software that analyzes big data to detect, investigate and remediate security threats. The technology is particularly designed to discover suspicious user behavior and risky access activity that traditional rule-based security technology can't see.

The Fortscale 1.0 software is currently undergoing beta trials and commercial availability is expected around the end of this year.

Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, Fortscale was founded in 2012 by security experts in the country's high-tech sector, some of whom previously worked for the Israel Defense Forces' intelligence and cybersecurity units. Co-founders Idan Tendler and Yona Hollander are CEO and COO, respectively.
