Cloud security platform startup Lightspin Technologies said it raised $16 million in a Series A funding round, bringing its total raised funds to $20 million, and announced plans to hire more personnel, according to SiliconANGLE
Lightspin provides a context-based cloud security platform for use with cloud-native and Kubernetes environments, allowing for a full contextual view of every cloud asset and relationship and continuous detection and prevention of all attack paths, while also mapping attack paths ranked according to severity to enable immediate remediation from build to runtime.
Lightspin’s platform enables users to visualize their present security posture through graph-based visualization of cloud assets and relationships mapped from an attacker’s point of view.
The platform employs predictive path analysis algorithms enhanced with third party-provided threat intelligence. It is compatible with AWS, Kubernetes, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud and can be used alongside popular developer applications including Bitbucket, GitLab, CircleCI, Terraform and Jenkins.
