build.security, a Sunnyvale, CA-based authorization policy management startup, raised $6m in seed funding.
The round was led by YL Ventures with participation from George Kurtz, CEO and Co-founder of CrowdStrike, Michael Sutton, former CISO of Zscaler; Sounil Yu, former Chief Security Scientist at Bank of America; Dan Amiga, former CTO and Co-founder of Fireglass (acquired by Symantec); Eyal Gruner, CEO and Co-founder of Cynet; and Eran Barak, former CEO and Co-founder of Hexadite (acquired by Microsoft). CrowdStrike CPO Amol Kulkarni has joined build.security’s board of directors.
Led by Amit Kanfer, CEO and Co-founder, build.security is offering a platform for authorization, providing developers with a tool to eliminate the kind of product vulnerabilities that have the potential to capsize entire organizations when exploited.
Leveraging Open Policy Agent (OPA), the solution decouples authorization policy from code, thereby allowing changes and updates to be made as required to help developers keep their authorization implementation attuned to their specific environment and changing needs. Users can choose to implement access policies with declarative policy language, or by using the platform’s unique drag-and-drop policy builder.
