Rezilion, a Beersheba, Israel-based autonomous cloud workload protection platform, raised $8m in seed funding.
The round was led by Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP), with participation from Kindred Capital, LocalGlobeת Samsung NEXT, and angel investors Ron Zuckerman, Guy Schory, and others.
The company intends to use the funds to expand the R&D team in Israel, as well as build sales operations and support in the US.
Founded by serial cybersecurity entrepreneurs Liran Tancman and Shlomi Boutnaru whose first company, CyActive, was acquired by PayPal in 2015, Rezilion is an autonomous cloud workload protection platform that makes production environments self-healing and resilient to threats. The platform enables all services, even those containing vulnerabilities, to continue running without interruption by ensuring that if a vulnerability is exploited, the affected service is automatically returned to a known-good state and the attack is mitigated. Furthermore, it identifies unused vulnerable code in production, allowing DevOps teams to remove it and improve operational hygiene.
