Lightspin, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based leader in contextual cloud security protecting native, Kubernetes, and microservices from known and unknown risks, launched out of stealth after closing a $4m seed funding round.
The round was led by Ibex Investors LLC, with participation from private angel investors.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.
Co-founded by CEO Vladi Sandler and CTO Or Azarzar, Lightspin has developed a technology platform that uses graph-based tools and algorithms to provide rapid, in-depth visualization of the cloud stack, analyze potential attack paths, and detect the root causes – the most critical vulnerabilities that attackers can exploit. By utilizing a prospective attacker’s approach, the system proactively and continuously maps all cloud assets in minutes to detect potential critical threats and avoid configuration vulnerabilities, providing cloud and security teams with a contextual view of cloud security stature at any given moment.
The solution is already in use at multiple Fortune 500 companies, and 20 pilots are currently running at global organizations.
