Israeli cyber security startup, enSilo, a data exfiltration prevention vendor, launches into the international cybersecurity market with a real-time data exfiltration prevention platform to address the evolving nature of the cyber kill chain.
Founded in 2014, enSilo raised its Seed funding from Carmel Ventures, a leading Israeli VC firm and member of the Viola Group. enSilo boasts that it has developed a platform which accurately distinguishes legitimate connections from malicious ones, already on initial connection establishment.
The company states that it reverses the traditional perspective on threats by looking at the end of the kill chain, where exfiltration occurs, rather than the beginning. enSilo’s application agnostic platform analyzes communication requests at the operating system (OS) level to enforce the anti-exfiltration policies already on connection establishment requests.
enSilo says that its solution enables organizations from all verticals to prevent business critical data from being stolen from the organization by advanced attackers even in the face of the persistent, chronic, advanced attacks. With its virtual patching against targeted attacks, enSilo enables employees to continue working, even with the endpoint is infected.
“The traditional defense-in-depth approach against advanced targeted threats has resulted in too many alerts for security professionals to handle. The constant infiltration nature of today’s threats led organizations into a “Whack-a-Mole” state where they are pre-destined to lose the game, ” said Roy Katmor, CEO of enSilo.
“By reversing the cyber kill chain defense model, enSilo is able to prevent – in real time – only active exfiltration attempts by targeted attackers. Thus, enSilo generates only one alert per one active threat while allowing organizations to continue operating as usual.”
Ronen Nir, General Partner at Carmel Ventures who joined the Company’s board of director, said, “We at Carmel Ventures, are excited to partner with the exceptional founding team of enSilo that brings a unique approach to the growing Advanced Persistent Attack problem.”
