Eureka Raises $8M in Seed Funding


Eureka, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based startup offering holistic security across cloud data stores, raised $8M in seed funding.

The round was led by YL Ventures with participation from renowned security executives and serial entrepreneurs including Edna Conway (VP, Security & Risk Officer, Azure Hardware Systems & Infrastructure at Microsoft), David Hannigan (Director of Product Security Assurance at Google Cloud), Andy Ellis (Former CSO at Akamai Technologies), Maarten Van Horenbeeck (CISO at Zendesk), Assaf Rappaport (CEO at Wiz) and Ben Bernstein (Former CEO at Twistlock, acquired by PANW).

The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its development efforts.

Founded by Palo Alto Networks (PANW) veterans Liat Hayun (CEO), former VP of Product Management, and Asaf Weiss (CTO), former Senior Director of Engineering, Eureka enables security teams to mitigate the risk of data loss and theft in multi-cloud environments by gaining control over their organization’s entire cloud data security posture and compliance.

The platform provides a seamless discovery and classification mechanism and a unified policy engine that integrates with all of the cloud platforms and processes that organizations use today. It enables data store inventory and contextualization, policy definition and deployment, and risk monitoring and management.
