Opus Security has landed $10m in a seed funding round headed by investment firm YL Ventures.
Also taking part in the round were Tiger Global and several cybersecurity executives and CISOs.
The Tel Aviv-based company is creating technology to help defenders manage and orchestrate cloud security response and remediation processes.
Opus will use the new funding to build technology for cloud security orchestration and remediation.
Opus Security says its platform integrates with existing security tools and orchestrates the entire remediation process across all stakeholders and organizational environments, based on easily deployed guidelines and playbooks.
The firm’s technology can be used to flag when sensitive issues require human involvement and allows automation to resolve the rest – cutting time from detection to mitigation and conserving valuable resources.
Opus said, “In recent years, revolutionary cloud security solutions created a higher level of visibility into potential threats. With more findings and more visibility, security operations had to expand from detection and response, and venture into risk reduction. This expansion and the shift-left mindset necessitated the involvement of a growing number of stakeholders across the organization, including security teams, DevOps/application teams and business owners.
“Lacking comprehensive tools, built-in automation, or streamlined processes to remediate risk, security teams are left with manual, time-consuming processes and no clear understanding of who owns this risk, who can mitigate it, when automation is “safe” and how they should delegate tasks accordingly, leaving numerous gaps unresolved.”
