Tenable explains that cybersecurity risk is one of the existential threats of our time. Every day, attackers are looking for your weaknesses, long before you know they’re there. But throwing disparate cybersecurity solutions at the problem only leaves gaps in your attack surface visibility and weakens your defense, says the firm.

Founded in 2019 by CEO Shai Morag, Sivan Krigsman, Arick Goomanovsky and Michael Dolinsky, Ermetic is an identity-first cloud infrastructure security platform that provides holistic, multicloud protection in an “easy-to-deploy SaaS solution.” Ermetic helps prevent breaches by continuously analyzing permissions, configurations and behavior across the full stack of identities, network, data and compute resources. Using advanced analytics to assess, prioritize and automatically remediate risks, Ermetic says it makes it possible to reduce your attack surface and enforce least privilege at scale even in the most complex cloud environments.

Ermetic’s holistic cloud infrastructure security platform reveals and prioritizes security gaps in AWS, Azure and GCP, and enables you to remediate them immediately.

In August, Ermetic released CNAPPgoat, an open source project that the company boasts allows organizations to safely test their cloud security skills, processes, tools and posture in interactive sandbox environments that are easy to deploy and destroy. CNAPPgoat supports AWS, Azure and GCP platforms for assessing the security capabilities included in Cloud Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPP).
