Dexecure raises S$1 million to make the web faster

Dexecure optimizes websites across devices, browsers and bandwidth conditions achieving up to 40% faster load time, resulting in a seamless user experience and more sales

SINGAPORE, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Singapore-based SaaS company Dexecure today announced a S$1 million seed financing round by Cocoon Capital and Walden International.

Dexecure's unique algorithm speeds up mobile and desktop websites by up to 40%. Faster websites generate more page views, increase customer engagement and drive more conversions and sales. Since Dexecure also reduces the bandwidth needed per page, both websites and their visitors save on bandwidth cost. Dexecure integrates with enterprise-grade content delivery networks (CDNs) in the market, making it easy to deploy in any production environment.       

Inian Parameshwaran, Founder and CEO of Dexecure said, "With browsers coming up with new features every single month, it is almost impossible for website developers to keep track and change their code to optimize for performance. At Dexecure, we have a team of developers that monitor these changes and accelerate websites so that users anywhere can enjoy a fast browsing experience." Dexecure's initial ideas were based on three years of research at the National University of Singapore and in collaboration with Anquan Capital Pte. Ltd.

Dexecure also allows website owners to measure the impact of increasing website performance on user engagement and sales. Their dashboard will integrate with tools like Google Analytics to accurately track the performance of the enhanced websites.

Dexecure was the first Singapore startup to be included in the Y Combinator Fellowship Program. In the last 4 months, Dexecure has optimized and served 568 million requests, saving 6.8 terabytes of data for its customers. Dexecure is also a part of the AWS Partner Network (APN) and offers their customers an accelerating software layer on top of the CloudFront service.

Will Klippgen, Managing Partner at Cocoon Capital, Southeast Asia's leading early-stage VC, will join Dexecure's board of directors. "Dexecure shows how global innovation is shifting towards Asia. We found that the company enables speed increases for high-traffic websites at a 6x to 10x lower price point compared to existing solutions in the market, and we are very excited to join Inian and his amazing team on their journey," he added.

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
Deep learning has been very successful in social sciences and specially areas where there is a lot of data. Trading is another field that can be viewed as social science with a lot of data. With the advent of Deep Learning and Big Data technologies for efficient computation, we are finally able to use the same methods in investment management as we would in face recognition or in making chat-bots. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Gaurav Chakravorty, co-founder and Head of Strategy Development ...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
