Lightspin Contextual Cloud Security  
From Vision to Action

Founded by experienced cloud pen-testers who spent time on the customer side of the equation, Lightspin's goal is to empower organizations to start seeing their cloud environment from an attacker’s perspective and instantly identify, prioritize, and fix any open attack paths.

OUR APPROACH - PREDICTIVE ATTACK PATH ANALYSIS AND DETECTION VISUALIZATION OF ANY PATH


We believe that what’s needed to address the current security challenges of the modern cloud and containers environment is a different approach; A holistic approach that takes every possible risk into consideration,  no matter where it comes from. And this can only be accomplished by getting the attackers' perspective, something our founders’ offensive background has made possible. With the idea of getting the attackers' perspective in mind, we developed a system that visualizes, detects, prioritizes, and fixes any risk to all cloud and Kubernetes environments.

OUR STORY - EXPERIENCING CHALLENGES, LOOKING FOR ANSWERS

94% of businesses use the cloud. But despite the cloud’s near-universal acceptance, it comes with unexpected complexities that pose significant challenges when it comes to keeping it secure. From the intricacies of the shared responsibility model to the countless settings and configurations that can be intentionally or unintentionally tampered with, there’s lots that can go wrong. Our founders had seen the realities of this challenge first hand during their time spent working in offensive cyber initiatives and set out to build a solution that would change the game. Officially launched in late 2020, Lightspin aims to enable cloud security owners to establish a resilient and hardened cloud security posture.

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN

And now, with multiple deployments in Fortune 500 companies, we are excited to enable organizations of all types and sizes to get proactive and take a predictive approach to optimizing cloud security.

Our Founders

Leadership

CEO

Vladi Sandler

Vladi is an avid security entrepreneur with more than twelve years of experience in cyber security domains. With vast experience in managing teams and initiating new and innovative services, he established the comprehensive application security training program in EY and headed up the first Automotive Cloud Security team at Cymotive. These roles, among others, enabled Vladi to get a full view of what was missing in the cloud security ecosystem. His entrepreneurial skills, coupled with his offensive perspective, make Vladi uniquely qualified to help organizations get their cloud security stack under control.    

CTO

Or Azarzar

Or is tech geek with ten years of experience in leading complicated and innovative cyber security teams and product development. As a recognized subject matter leader in both defensive and offensive product research and development, Or brings his extensive experience to Lightspin, delivering the most cutting-edge solutions to users. Or served as a cloud security architect at Cymotive and before that, served as the Offensive IoT R&D Team Leader at the Prime Minister's Office. He specializes in cloud and Kubernetes security and is slightly obsessed with pentesting cloud infrastructure.

Cloud oriented enterprises suffer from starvation for cloud security experts and from a significant overheadburden of alerts as a result of using first-generation cloud security solutions. The time taking to review all the warnings is increasing dramatically, and so is the daily overhead. Once the security solution notifies high or Criticalcritical-level security issues, the security team has tomust investigate the incident, estimate the risk, and approve the severity before opening a ticket. The challenge in classifying a single finding as critical without understanding the impact may lead to growing false-positive rates and a decrease in the team's productivity.
