Flow Security Launches Next-Gen Data Security Platform Following $10 Million Seed Round

Flow Security | August 05, 2022

Flow Security today announced $10M in seed funding and launched the first data security platform that discovers and protects both data at rest and in motion. The funding was led by Amiti, with participation from GFC, Amdocs Ventures, and industry leaders such as CyberArk CEO Udi Mokady and Demisto CEO and co-founder Slavik Markovich. Enterprises of all sizes continue to make heavy investments in technology stacks as they transition to modern cloud application architectures. This new era promises many benefits, but has also led to significant data sprawl and major difficulties in securing data. With the widespread adoption of modern architectures, securing sensitive data such as PII, PHI, financial information, and intellectual property has become a near-impossible task. Flow Security helps organizations overcome these challenges by continuously mapping and detecting all data-related risks for an improved data security posture. Flow is the only data security platform that supports use cases including discovering and classifying data flows to external services, policy enforcement, automatic data-related threat modeling, and reducing data access permissions to the minimum. Flow has a growing customer base in highly-regulated markets such as e-commerce, fintech, healthcare, insurtech, and more. "Discovery, mapping and protecting data is usually a manual process, which is not effective in large organizations," says Nir Chervoni, Head of Data Security of Booking.com, "Automatic data mapping should consist of analyzing the actual payload, and not only its metadata. So far, Flow is the only company I've seen that provides that capability for multiple scenarios." "Security and data protection teams are struggling to keep up with the rapid pace of today, and Flow is making their lives exponentially easier," said Ben Rabinowitz, Managing Partner and Founder at Amiti Ventures. "We're thrilled to be a partner on this journey, and eager to help capitalize on this opportunity to give security teams the technology they need to become business enablers." "We've reviewed dozens of different data security tools lately, and we weren't satisfied with any of them. "But Flow's data-in-motion approach is a game changer. It took the platform a few days to map data-related threats that usually take months of manual work to detect." Ralph Pyne, VP of Security at NextRoll "Data security is not a new problem, but the challenges are changing and growing," said Jonathan Roizin, co-founder and CEO of Flow Security. "Organizations are moving at a record pace and quickly transitioning to the cloud and cloud-first applications. These transformations often make life easier, but they also make the jobs of security professionals even more difficult. With Flow, security teams are no longer forced to chase down information. It simplifies security and regulatory processes and bridges the gap between security and development teams." About Flow Security Flow Security revolutionizes data security with the first platform that discovers and protects data not only at rest, but also in motion. Founded in 2021 by Jonathan Roizin and Rom Ashkenazi, the Israel-based company is backed by Amiti, GFC, Amdocs Ventures, and market-leading angel investors.

Searchlight Security Elevates Dark Web Intelligence to Board Level with New Automated Reporting

Searchlight Security | August 02, 2022

Searchlight Security, the dark web intelligence company, has introduced new automated reporting functionality into its DarkIQ dark web monitoring solution to help security analysts and MSSPs to quickly and easily communicate external threats to executives. DarkIQ is a powerful dark web monitoring solution that utilizes the most comprehensive dark web dataset on the market, and the only one that includes dark web traffic to and from the organization’s network. It takes the attributes that are most important to a business - including employee credentials, software, devices, IP addresses, network components, and company datasets - and alerts organizations to their presence in deep and dark web marketplaces, forums, and conversations, which could indicate an imminent attack. This threat intelligence is specific to the organization, removing “alert fatigue” and allowing security teams to prioritize the most urgent threats to the business. DarkIQ’s new automated reporting function builds on its existing capabilities by helping analysts to more easily communicate the dark web intelligence they discover - improving response times to possible attacks and educating the wider business on dark web threats. “Our mission is to make dark web intelligence as relevant and actionable for businesses as possible and our new reporting function is a huge part of that. Threat intelligence is only powerful if it can be understood and acted on - otherwise it is just noise. Communication is everything.” Eric Milam, EVP product at Searchlight Security DarkIQ Reporting gives enterprise security teams and MSSPs the ability to: Generate slick reports with one click - with threat intelligence data automatically pulled, inputted, and presented from the DarkIQ platform. Select the right level of detail for the audience - with an “Executive” report option for a high level summary or “Detailed” report for security personnel, which includes recommended remediative actions that should be taken based on the threat data. Add and remove reporting fields - to further customize the report to suit the audience by adding, moving, or removing components, as well as the ability for security teams to add their own analysis, context and observations. Customize design - with the ability to brand reports and change the font and color scheme, a particularly important feature for MSSPs reselling DarkIQ to their customers. Resource more effectively - with less time spent on reporting so they can spend more time protecting the business. Demonstrate Return on Investment - with the ability to show imminent threats that have been identified and prevented through dark web intelligence. Milam concluded: “In threat intelligence, the job isn’t done until the report is filed. This is a burden on security teams that we wanted to - and have been able to - alleviate, because every minute less they spend reporting is a minute more they can spend stopping the bad guys. At the same time, they have a better solution to deliver pre-attack intelligence with more clarity so the business can be more proactive in stopping imminent threats.” About Searchlight Security Searchlight Security provides organizations with relevant and actionable dark web threat intelligence, to help them identify and prevent criminal activity. Founded in 2017 with a mission to stop criminals acting with impunity on the dark web, we have been involved in some of the world’s largest dark web investigations and have the most comprehensive dataset based on proprietary techniques and ground-breaking academic research. Today we help government and law enforcement, enterprises, and managed security services providers around the world to illuminate deep and dark web threats and prevent attacks.
