Silk Security

Silk Security Co-founders: Bar Katz, Chief Technology Officer; Or Priel, Chief Product Officer; and, Yoav Nathaniel, Chief Executive Officer.

Silk Security, an Israeli cybersecurity startup, that says its platform is the first to support sustainable cyber risk resolutions, announced the company’s public launch with $12.5 million in seed funding led by global software investor Insight Partners and Hetz Ventures.

With so many cybersecurity startups out there, people must be asking right now what makes Silk Security different from all the rest. Well, it has something to do with the holistic approach.

We have all heard of holistic medicine, which is usually synonymous with unscientifically proven methods of treatment. While they may sometimes offer relief, it is only for the short term and never really deals with the underlying condition.

A holistic approach is a way of thinking about and addressing problems that take into account the whole person, including their physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual dimensions. It is a more comprehensive and integrated approach than traditional approaches that focus on only one aspect of a person’s life.

There are many benefits to taking a holistic approach to problems when used in addition to standard practices. First, it can help to identify the root cause of the problem, which is often more difficult to do if you only focus on one aspect of the person’s life. Second, it can help to develop more effective solutions to problems, as you are taking into account all of the factors that are contributing to the problem. Third, it can help to improve the overall quality of life for the person, as you are addressing all of their needs.

But how does this apply to business or cybersecurity?

founded in 2022 by CEO Yoav Nathaniel, CTO Bar Katz and CPO Or Priel, Silk Security boasts that it is the first platform that enables enterprises to take a strategic, sustainable approach to resolving code, infrastructure and application risk. Silk’s holistic approach enables operations and security stakeholders to collaboratively align finding risk with fixing risk – enhancing enterprise security posture and centralizing visibility and audibility for resolution status.

A holistic approach to business is a way of thinking about and running a business that takes into account the entire system, including all of the stakeholders. This means considering the needs of employees, customers, suppliers, and the environment, as well as the financial bottom line.

There are many benefits to taking a holistic approach to business. First, it can help to create a more sustainable and ethical business. Second, it can lead to improved employee morale and productivity. Third, it can help to attract and retain customers who are interested in doing business with companies that share their values.

But Silk Security is the first firm to apply this to the field of cybersecurity.

“Coming from a large financial institution, I witnessed first hand that the way security teams approach and collaborate to resolve risk is still stuck in the past,” said Silk CEO and Co-founder Yoav Nathaniel. “Just as the IT environment has become distributed, so too has risk responsibility and ownership become distributed across operations and engineering teams. That is what led us to launch Silk Security. We wanted to find a way to extend and augment existing tools to automate and optimize this tedious risk resolution process so that teams can collaborate on the issues that put their business at risk.”
