Entitle, an Israeli startup that offers a cloud permissions management platform, exited stealth with $15 million in seed financing led by Glilot Capital Partners with participation by angel investors including more than 10 CISO’s from Unicorn companies.
Founded in 2021 by CEO Ron Nissim and CTO Avi Zetser – both graduates of the IDF’s vaunted cybersecurity Unit 8200 – Entitle is a cloud permissions management platform that automates how access to cloud resources is requested, granted, and managed across the organization. Entitle boasts that it eliminates bottlenecks related to manual access granting and enables dynamic, just-in-time authorization for better security, governance, and productivity.
The company boasts that security teams use Entitle to automatically grant on-call engineers access to production (break-glass protocol), revoke vendors’ access when their contract expires, limit IdP admin role to a few hours, pending peer approval, and many other uses.

Instead of governing permissions across thousands of isolated resources, Entitle provides a centralized view of all permissions that employees and contractors have or had. Every access-related action is logged including who asked for permission, to what, who signed off on it, and why, establishing governance and automating the tasks involved with demonstrating support for SOC2 and other compliance mandates.
“As a global, cloud-based insurance company, the only way for us to fulfill stringent security, audit and compliance requirements is by automating as many functions as possible,” said Jonathan Jaffe, CISO, Lemonade. “Using Entitle, we’ve implemented self-service provisioning with best security practices such as Just-in-Time access incorporated into IAM workflows. It’s saved us time and money and taken the pain out of access reviews and audits.”
“Our expertise in the IDF was in operational security and the core problems underlying permissions management are operational. Entitle enables us to apply our military training to solve a tough, long standing IT problem,” said Ron Nissim, co-founder and CEO, Entitle. “The Entitle platform takes the risk management burden off DevOps teams and onto security, where it belongs. Our security-first approach eliminates the tradeoff between security and productivity and we’re excited to show what we bring to the table.”
