More and more companies are adopting low-code / no-code tools to build mission-critical applications, and it may be natural that new services focused on tool security are emerging within that ecosystem. Tel Aviv’s Zenity is one such company, which has announced a $ 5 million seed round through stealth on November 23, local time. The round was led by Vertex Ventures and UpWest, with many angel investors including Google CISO Gerhard Eschelbeck and SuccessFactors CIO Tom Fisher. ing.
According to Zenity, as employees began to create their own applications and adopted tools such as RPA (robot-based business automation), new apps were introduced against hacking and ransomware. Sometimes I open a door that I didn’t have before.
Zenity co-founder and CEO Ben Kliger said of this situation: “Companies are now heavily adopting low-code / no-code, but they take risks and risks themselves. We don’t understand the responsibilities we share. We support CIOs and CISOs, allowing them to seamlessly control low-code / no-code applications, resulting in unexpected data breaches, disruption to the business, and compliance. To prevent risks, malicious infringement, etc. “
Zenity’s platform allows companies to catalog low-code / no-code applications within their organization, reduce the potential for problems, and set up automatically enforceable governance policies for their organization. According to the company, traditional security service methods are not applicable to low-code / no-code applications, but the need for such tools is increasing on their own. Moreover, the developers using it have no security experience or knowledge. Some developers with no experience in software development will enter the world of low-code / no-code.
Tom Fisher, Zenity’s advisor, former Oracle and Qualcomm CIO, and eBay CTO, said: “The challenge is to reduce the risks and security threats that are common in low-code / no-code solutions without disturbing the business. Zenity has the perfect combination of governance and security tools and a professional approach to the business. So corporate developers can rest assured that they can build security together. “
