Michael Novinson

The 10 hottest cloud security startups include companies finding cloud vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, monitoring managed and unmanaged datastores, and identifying overprivileged users and incorrectly assigned permissions.

Lightspin

CEO: Vladi Sandler

Lightspin was founded in 2020, and in June closed a $16 million Series A round led by Dell Technologies to fuel cross-function innovation and growth as the company plans to triple the size of its staff, while maintaining its commitment to gender balance across all departments. The Tel Aviv, Israel-based company employs 43 people, up 115 percent from 20 employees a year ago, according to LinkedIn.

The company has developed a context-based cloud security platform for cloud-native and Kubernetes environments. Lightspin’s platform provides a full contextual view of all cloud assets and relationships, maps the potential attack paths, and prioritizes and remediates the most critical security issues from build to runtime.

Lightspin empowers cloud and security teams to eliminate risks and maximize productivity by proactively and automatically detecting all security risks, smartly prioritizing the most critical issues, and easily fixing them. The company in November expanded its board to include top executives from Netflix, RedLock, CyberArk, and the New York Stock Exchange to advise on technology and business strategies.
