Its product ActiveScout protects computer networks against real-time attacks through user identification, active prevention, and early warnings.

"ForeScout has delivered unmatched security technology that neutralizes network attacks in real time, with zero false positives and without the time consuming post attack analysis required by so many other security solutions," commented Meritech partner Paul Madera.

Madera has been appointed as an observer to ForeScouts board. The startup's board has several Israeli venture capital veterans, including Pitango's Rami Kalish and Theresia Gouw Ranzetta of Accel. Check Point Software Technologies (Nasdaq:CHKP) co-founder Shlomo Kramer is also a director.

Meritech Capital was co-founded and sponsored by five venture firms: Accel Partners, Brentwood Venture Capital, Oak Investment Partners, Redpoint Ventures and Worldview Technology Partners. The fund is capitalized at $1.8 billion.

Forescout employs 42 people at its Tel Aviv R&D facility. Its headquarters are in the United States.
