Portshift Platform Looks to Secure Application Identity in the Cloud
November 20, 2018 / Sean Michael Kerner
Assigning identity to applications has long been a challenge for organizations, and it's one that startup Portshift is looking to help solve. Portshift officially launched on Nov. 20, backed by Israeli cyber-security accelerator Team8 and $5.3 million in seed funding. Portshift's core technology uses digital signing techniques within the development and deployment phase to validate and authenticate applications, in an effort to improve security. "We believe that it's time for a new paradigm shift when talking about the application security in the cloud," Ran Ilany, Portshift’s CEO and founder, told eWEEK. "What we're doing is building a method, a solution which intertwines security and operations together, essentially from the get-go, from the CI/CD, the very beginning of the development life cycle."
