Connecting Israeli Cybersecurity Technology with Global End Markets

Presented by

John Brennan Partner, YL Ventures & Avi Shua CEO, Orca Security

About this talk

How can the cybersecurity industry marry the unparalleled concentration of technical talent in Israel with the burning business needs of enterprise customers? As a US-based seed stage investor in Israeli cybersecurity, John will share where he is spending most of his time and where there is strong overlap of customer need and entrepreneurial talent in trending areas of cybersecurity. He will also talk about how YL Ventures aims to bring value to both the Israeli & U.S. cybersecurity ecosystems through its concentrated style of investing and its hands-on customer-centric approach to the market. Managing the IT security posture for on-prem networks is an unstable three-legged stool consisting of: The breadth of asset coverage The depth of insights into each asset The friction in deploying tools to accomplish the above We take it for granted that stabilizing one leg of the stool comes at the sacrifice of one or more of the others. Does the same equation hold true to cloud environments? Yes, but only if we carry our biases from the physical world. If we simply adapt on-prem security approaches to the cloud then we’ve failed to extract the capabilities of the cloud. Utilizing its patent-pending SideScanning™ technology, Orca provides workload-level security for AWS, Azure, and GCP without the gaps in coverage and operational friction of agents and network scanners. After an instant-on, read-only, and impact-free integration to the cloud provider, Orca detects vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, lateral movement risk, weak and leaked passwords, and unsecured high-risk data - then prioritizes risk based on environmental context.
