Cloud security company Lightspin, which focuses on contextual cloud security protecting native, Kubernetes and microservices from risks, emerged from stealth mode this week armed with a $4 million seed round.

Lightspin’s founders are former “white hat” hackers paid to break into the cloud infrastructures of some of the largest companies in the world. Understanding how attackers think is the startup’s “super power,” according to cofounder and CEO Vladi Sandler.

Lightspin’s technology allows organizations to preempt hackers by proactively mapping the full cloud stack in minutes to detect potential critical threats and avoid configuration vulnerabilities. The SaaS platform uses predictive, graph-based tools and algorithms to provide rapid, in-depth visualization of the cloud stack, analyze potential attack paths and detect the root causes.

Denver’s Ibex Investors led the seed round for Lightspin, whose staff – including research, development and engineering – is 50 percent female.
