KTrust emerges from stealth with $5.3 million to detect Kubernetes exposures

Its Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) platform discovers creative attack paths and maneuvers around existing security measures to identify and validate actual exposures

Cyber company KTrust has announced that it has emerged from stealth with a Seed round of $5.3 million for its attacker-centric approach to detecting exposures in Kubernetes. The round was led by Canadian-Israeli deep-tech VC AWZ Ventures.
Kubernetes security is essential as companies adopt containerized application management, but traditional security tools adopt a passive approach that focuses on misconfigurations or vulnerability management. KTrust’s Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) platform continuously and autonomously discovers creative attack paths, and maneuvers around existing security measures to identify and validate actual exposures with optimized mitigation for each Kubernetes ecosystem.

“KTrust introduces a proactive approach to K8s security that has been missing until now. KTrust continuously assesses your K8s security threat posture by challenging your critical assets with advanced attack pathways,” said Nadav Toledo, CEO and co-founder. “Our in-house research lab is dedicated to uncovering novel attack vectors to constantly refine our attack algorithms, ensuring validation and identification of attack vectors tailored to every dynamic environment.”
The platform also provides in-depth visibility into a customer’s K8s ecosystem, mimics attackers, and bypasses security controls to validate real attacks.
"Our investment in KTrust signifies our confidence in their distinctive Kubernetes security solution, meeting a critical market demand. With this investment KTrust will scale to empower DevSecOps globally in ensuring the secure deployment of their K8s-based applications," added Yaron Ashkenazi, Managing Partner at AWZ Ventures
KTrust was co-founded by Toledo alongside CTO Nadav Aharon-Nov, CBO Snir Mazilik, and COO Sigalit Shavit. It helps companies and their DevSecOps by uncovering innovative paths, continuously validating real exposures, and automating mitigation for each unique ecosystem. The platform offers comprehensive K8s Risk Prioritization, Breach and Attack Simulation, and Ransomware Protection.
