Reshef Builds Blue Security

Entrepreneur Eran Reshef has surfaced again with a fledgling anti-spam-and-spyware firm called Blue Security Inc., which has just raised $3 million in seed funding.

Reshef was the man behind firewall software firm Sanctum, which was bought by Watchfire Technologies Inc. for an undisclosed fee last year (see Watchfire Secures Sanctum, Eyes IPO).

The exec, who served as an officer in an elite technology unit in the Israeli military, also founded fellow security startup Skybox Security Inc. Reshef is still a board director of Skybox, which attracted over $10 million in Series C funding earlier this year (see Startup Skybox to Raise $10M).

Benchmark Capital, an investor in Skybox Security, has stumped up the cash for Blue Securitys seed round, and Reshef says it will go towards developing and launching the company’s core security technology.

But he's not saying much more. “I can’t tell you very much -- we’re currently releasing very few details."
