The investment reiterates Quick Heal's ongoing efforts to invest in disruptive technologies that will shape the future of cybersecurity while supporting innovative start-ups.This is Quick Heal's third investment in the last 18 months and augments its commitment to secure the digital transformation journey of its customers. In addition to L7 Defense, Quick Heal had recently invested in Singapore based Ray Pte Ltd.

Dr. Kailash Katkar, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Quick Heal Technologies, said, "At Quick Heal Technologies, we are always on the lookout for right investment opportunities by evaluating new platforms and technologies that enable us to support the digital transformation journey of our customers. L7 Defense has proven its unique capabilities in the area of API Security and NGWAF which led us to further increase our investment. Simultaneously, this move enables 'Seqrite' to foray into application security and strengthen our solution stack to secure modern enterprises against the next-generation of cyber-attacks."

Yisrael Gross, Co-Founder, L7 Defense, said," We are delighted to strengthen and further solidify our relationship and bond with Quick Heal Technologies. This investment is strategic, and will enable us to further extend our technological leadership, to increase our exposure and gain further market awareness. We are thrilled and energized to have support from Quick Heal Technologies. This vote of confidence reinforces our resolve and motivation to become the API security leader in this extremely dynamic market."
