Israel-based startup Eureka on Wednesday announced emerging from stealth mode with a cloud data security posture management platform and $8 million in seed funding.

Founded by Liat Hayun (CEO) and Asaf Weiss (CTO), Eureka aims to address the data security challenges faced by organizations that are migrating to the cloud.

Cloud data security company EurekaThe company’s platform — advertised as easy to deploy and use — is designed to secure all data in enterprise cloud data stores.

The solution provides real time and comprehensive visibility into existing data stores, it enables organizations to define and manage data security policies, and alerts them of any policy violations.

Eureka’s platform works with all public cloud providers. The solution is “non-intrusive and read only” to ensure the integrity of customer environments, the company said.

The seed funding round was led by YL Ventures, with participation from several cybersecurity executives and serial entrepreneurs, including Microsoft’s Edna Conway, Google Cloud’s David Hannigan, and Andy Ellis, former CSO of Akamai.

“We can’t avoid multi-cloud environments no matter how chaotic they are for our data security,” said Hannigan, who is director of product security assurance at Google Cloud. “Eureka is both enabling companies to securely place and leverage their data in the cloud environments of their choice and dramatically easing its management by engineers, security and compliance teams. The fact that they’re accomplishing this in a single platform is game-changing,”
