The four founders of the company have many years of cybersecurity experience. The company’s founders’ previous companies have been acquired by Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks, and Temasek.

 

“Monitoring and managing cloud access risk is challenging and becomes even more complex over time as users and applications accumulate permissions that far exceed their technical and business requirements, resulting in vulnerabilities that hackers can actively exploit,” Shai Morag, the CEO of Ermetic said in a statement. “Using analytics and automation, Ermetic eliminates the manual effort and costs associated with determining the precise permissions necessary for each user, service, or application in complex environments like AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.”
