Apolicy develops a powerful automation platform that orchestrates policies and risk management from authoring to enforcement and compliance in a Cloud-Native environment. Today (Thursday), Israeli cyber-security startup, Apolicy, announced the completion of a $3.5 million Seed round, led by StageOne Ventures.

Controlling all data in a Cloud-Native environment

Apolicy’s platform offers management and automation of data security policies in a Cloud-Native environment, performing individual accurate risk analysis for all active workloads while defining policy-as-code based on research, market insight, and personalized customer service insight. In addition, the platform prioritizes tasks and provides personalized ‘prescriptions’ for bug fixing.

The investment announcement came alongside the opening of a public beta for the platform, offering support for Kubernetes environment as step one. “Despite its qualities, Kubernetes is a constantly evolving system and its configuration complexity poses difficult challenges for the DevOps and cyber-security teams, who are in charge of enforcing policy,” the company explains. The platform provides a wide-spread solution simplifying bug fixing as well as risk and policy management processes.

Apolicy CEO, Maor Goldberg referred to the Seed investment and beta trial when he said: “Organizations that define and enforce security policy for their Kubernetes environment lean on common industry practices, however, the ‘one policy fits all’ attitude only provides a partial solution. This is why we started Apolicy. So that each organization will receive risk and policy management from one system that personalizes data analysis based on their unique needs.”

The Israeli cyber-security startup was founded in 2019 by Maro Goldberg, VP Product Management Eran Leib, and VP R&D Shlomi Wexler. The three previously started the cyber-security company, Whitebox, which was bought out by SailPoint Security back in 2015.
