The 10 Hottest Cloud Security Startups In 2023 (So Far)
Cybersecurity startups focused on securing data and identities in cloud environments are among those making big moves during the first half of the year.
CEO: Merav Bahat
Dazz has aimed to stand out from others in the cloud security space by focusing on helping organizations to prioritize and remediate cloud vulnerabilities, in contrast to tools that are mainly capable of generating alerts. The startup’s platform further simplifies the process by providing developers with the fix to cloud security issues within their workspace. Founded by a group of former Microsoft executives — including Bahat, who was previously the general manager for Microsoft’s cloud security business — Dazz has collected $60 million in funding so far. Recent product moves have included the launch of a private preview for a capability that helps to automate remediation of cloud security issues, such as infrastructure-as-code flaws, by leveraging OpenAI’s GPT-4 large language model to derive insights from sources of unstructured data. “Our unique position as a fully-integrated platform allows us to capitalize on the potential of LLMs in providing actionable remediation,” Dazz said in a blog post announcing the new capability in June.
