Monarx Closes $6.1M Funding

Managing Partner Ben Dahl of Signal Peak Ventures, who was the early lead investor in the
cybersecurity company Cloudflare, led a $6.1M funding round.

SALT LAKE CITY — Monarx is the most effective security solution for web hosting, with proprietary AI-powered technology that automatically protects websites from attack, or transforms malicious activity into high-quality, targeted, timely leads that drive revenue for hosters.


Managing Partner Ben Dahl of Signal Peak Ventures, who was the early lead investor in the
cybersecurity company Cloudflare, led the $6.1M funding round. Kickstart Fund, Pelion
Venture Partners, and Crosscut Ventures also participated in the round. Monarx will use the
money to help it further fuel partner growth.

“Monarx has created impressive new technology that actually protects websites effectively,
while other tools don’t,” said Dahl. “We’ve seen how the right combination of tech and business
model can open up huge new opportunities in cybersecurity, and we love how Monarx is doing
that in web hosting.”


Monarx’s easiest-to-deploy solution enables hosting providers the choice to automatically
protect against attacks on websites and/or monetize malware by detecting malicious activity
and selling automatic protection to site owners. This flexibility allows them to fit the solution to
their exact business model and replace less effective alternatives. The approach is significantly
more effective, substantially less risky, and 17X less resource-intensive than the closest
competitor. Moreover, Monarx’s unique AI-powered technology blocks more malware and has
way fewer false positives than any other tool – 35% more and 69X fewer, respectively, than the
closest competitors.

“I’m excited to have Ben joining our team, as he brings tremendous experience and credibility
in cybersecurity,” said Monarx CEO Jeremy Warren. “These are challenging times for a lot of
technology companies, but I’m proud that we’ve been able to keep growing successfully by
focusing on solving core problems and driving concrete value for our hosting partners. Thanks
to Ben and all of Signal Peak for recognizing what we’ve built and choosing to join us as we
continue on our mission to secure the world’s websites.”
