Cloud Security Company Lightspin Emerges From Stealth Mode


Israel-based cloud security company Lightspin announced on Tuesday that it has emerged from stealth mode with $4 million in seed funding.

Lightspin provides what it describes as a contextual cloud security platform designed to help organizations protect cloud-native applications, Kubernetes and microservices. The company says its product uses graph-based tools and algorithms to provide cloud stack visualization, identify potential attack paths, and detect the root cause of a vulnerability. The platform also helps organizations prioritize and remediate risks and mitigate threats.

Lightspin says its product has already been used by multiple Fortune 500 companies.

The seed funding round was led by Ibex Investors, with participation from private angel investors.

“An increasing reliance on cloud computing is inevitably leading to an expanding threat landscape. Having worked with CISOs and cloud owners from numerous global companies, we know that existing solutions do not address the full scope of security challenges for dynamic, modern cloud and Kubernetes environments,” said Vladi Sandler, CEO and co-founder of Lightspin.

“Based on our experience in attacking cloud infrastructure, we understand how attackers think, which is our superpower. We are proud to have secured this funding, at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, and to launch out of stealth to further our work in helping organizations significantly reduce risk by identifying and prioritizing critical security gaps for remediation before they fall into the wrong hands,” Sandler added.
