Argus Cyber Security, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based startup focused on automotive cyber security, announced on Thursday that it has raised $26 million in Series B funding.

Using DPI and Big Data technologies, Argus’s platform helps protect against new vehicle cyber threats as they emerge.

Investors in the funding round include Magna International, Allianz SE, the SBI Group and existing investors Magma Venture Partners, Vertex Venture Capital and the Co-Founder of the RAD Group, Mr. Zohar Zisapel.
