build.security, an Israeli company developing a platform for managing licensing policy, emerged from the stealth on Wednesday with initial funding of $6 million.
The company build.security was founded by Amit Kanfer, who will be the CEO, and Dekel Braunstein, who will be the technical director. The company is headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel, but is also expanding into the United States for marketing and sales.
The build.security platform, which is expected to be available to the public in the second or third quarter of 2021, is described as an Open Policy Agent (OPA) based authorization policy management platform and is designed to help developers address issues related to the implementation of role-based access control (RBAC) and attribute-based access control (ABAC) in enterprise applications.
The solution can be used to create, assign, manage and test access policies, including user-to-application, service-to-service, employee-to-employee and data access policies.
The platform is designed to help developers address potential vulnerabilities by providing full visibility into policy enforcement, granular access control and unlinked logic. Developers can implement an access policy using a drag-and-drop policy builder or a declarative language (i.e. plain English).
The company claims that its platform has a simple architecture that consists of two main elements: a control layer element located in its cloud and a container that must run on site at the same time as the developed application.
build.security indicates that the solution is easy to implement, that it can also be used for existing applications that already have an authorization process, and that it can be used in companies of all sizes. The platform integrates with various types of data sources, including ElasticSearch, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, GitHub and Auth0, as well as JIRA and ServiceNow ticketing systems. Regarding the integration of identity providers, the platform works with G Suite, Active Directory and Okta.
The company says it will offer a premium version of its platform for companies and a free solution for developers. The platform also allows users to create usage examples and guidelines and share them with others.
The funding round for the launch of build.security, which closed in April, was led by YL Ventures, with CrowdStrike CEO George Kurtz and a number of other cyber security leaders.
