PerimeterX announced that it has upped its Series C financing round to $57 million with an additional $14 million from Deutsche Telecom Capital Partners (DTCP) and Salesforce Ventures.

DTCP and Salesforce Ventures joined Scale Venture Partners, which led the round, along with additional funds from Adam Street Partners, Canaan Partners, Vertex Ventures and Data Collective (DCVC). The latest round brought the malware and bot protection company's funding to a total of $91.5 million.

“Each day, the news is filled with stories about top brands that have been compromised by threat actors who covertly modify website code and begin collecting personal information from site visitors or users,” said Omri Iluz, co-founder and CEO of Perimeterx, in a statement. “This additional funding, and the relationship with these strategic investors, gives us the power to speed up the expansion of our product portfolio to stop the Magecart and digital skimming attacks we’ve read so much about. We remain dedicated to helping our customers focus on growing their digital business, knowing their consumers and brand are secure.”
