Israel-based cloud cybersecurity platform Mesh Security has launched out of stealth alongside the close of a $4.5m seed round.
The seed round was led by Booster Ventures with the participation of additional investors.
Mesh Security claims to have the industry’s first zero trust posture management solution. Its platform makes it simple for companies to implement a comprehensive zero trust architecture security in the cloud.
Its platform is a ‘single source of truth’, which helps companies implement zero trust security. Without the need of agents, Mesh can map a company’s entire cloud XaaS estate within minutes, with full contextual visibility and analysis of the current zero trust posture.
It immediately prioritises sensitive assets and critical risks and allows organisations to build automated processes to bridge any gaps that enable continuous security and compliance. It also monitors anomalous activities in real-time and can automatically take action when assets might be under attack.
The company was founded by Netanel Azoulay and Omri Hering, who have a shared 15 years of experience designing resilient distributed cloud networks during their military service.
Mesh Security co-founder and CEO Netanel Azoulay said, “We spoke with so many companies that are trying but failing to implement Zero Trust comprehensively.
“Data, multi-cloud, applications, processes, environments, workloads, identities, networks, and more… Zero Trust in the cloud-first era is daunting. We purpose-built Mesh to provide a secure foundation for the Zero Trust journey, cutting through the noise and organisational silos to provide the continuous visibility, control, and protection needed to never trust and always verify, everywhere in a company’s cloud estate.”
To highlight the need of zero trust in the cloud, Mesh announced its discovery of “Cookeys”. This is a broad MFA bypass and impersonation risks in over 100 vendors, including Okta. These security risks result in improper session cookie validation that can give an attacker full access to mission-critical resources from anywhere in the world, leaving a gaping hole in an organisation’s Zero Trust posture.
Earlier in the year, fellow Israel-based CyberTech company Jit raised $38.5m in its seed round. The company helps developers simplify security during the development of cloud apps.
