7 Cool Cloud Security Startups At AWS Re:Inforce

Jay Fitzgerald

From the ‘holy grail of security’ to straightforward data protection tools, entrepreneurs touted a number of new cloud-security products at the Boston conference.

Lightlytics

Lightlytics is building a “simulated digital model” of the cloud – the entire cloud, with all its seemingly endless components – in an attempt to better predict potential vulnerabilities before customers deploy data to the cloud.

“This is the holy grail of security,” says Or Shoshani, CEO and co-founder of the two-year-old Lightlytics, referring to the predictive nature of his firm’s technology. “It’s really, really unique.”

Investors obviously believe in the Tel Aviv, Israel-based Lightlytics and its SaaS platform designed to help companies code and deploy configurations faster and safer to the cloud. The company earlier this year raised $30 million in Series A funding.

Lightlytics currently sells via direct sales, but Shoshani said he eventually wants more of his firm’s business coming via the channel.
