FireLayers Comes Out of Stealth Mode to Announce Funding from YL Ventures; Introduces Flagship Platform Comprises of FireLayers CONTROL and FireLayers ANALYZE

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, FireLayers emerged from stealth mode to introduce the world's first comprehensive policy-based security, compliance and IT governance platform for cloud applications. Cloud applications have become critical business enablers, but they also expose businesses to risks and vulnerabilities.  FireLayers offers a strategic solution - a policy-based, unifying platform that enables organizations to adopt cloud applications on their own terms.

The FireLayers solution allows the proactive mitigation of security and compliance gaps, neutralizing of technical vulnerabilities, and the protection of sensitive information. IT departments can immediately deploy predefined and customizable rule-sets for popular applications. IT and security managers can use predefined rule-sets or create their own rules for their specific workplace.

FireLayers' comprehensive policy-based platform capabilities include:

  • Strategic policy-based platform for security, compliance, and IT governance,
  • Pre-defined and customizable rule-sets for popular applications including Salesforce, NetSuite, Workday, Office 365,, Yammer and more,
  • User-friendly, powerful, policy manager to create cloud controls and rules for every application and every element,
  • Open API enabling integration with 3rd party add-ons including encryption, anti-malware, DLP, behavior-based analysis, and others, and
  • Seamless deployment with no client software.

Discovery and security gap analysis leveraged with cloud application auditing and proactive controls, comprises a robust solution to prevent cloud security attacks and breaches and to ensure compliance.

"The cloud is the biggest tectonic shift in IT in the past decade," said Yair Grindlinger, Co-Founder and CEO. "It represents huge benefits, and requires IT and security leaders to define the right cloud Application strategy for their organizations, one that will enable the great benefits of cloud adoption while maintaining required levels of security, compliance and IT governance."

"Companies are looking for comprehensive, proactive and preventive solutions as the basis for a successful cloud application security, compliance and IT governance program. One-size fits all,  reactive tools can be add-ons, but not the core platform that organizations need or are looking for," said Doron Elgressy, Co-Founder and President.

FireLayers is fully funded by San Francisco-headquartered venture capital firm YL Ventures, which invests in cyber security, cloud computing, big data and Software-as-a-Service businesses. 

"FireLayers has developed deeply-proprietary technology that is revolutionizing the way that enterprises use cloud-based applications.  It is the only truly secure and employee viable solution to the challenges of Shadow IT and cloud application control," said YL Ventures Managing Partner and FireLayers Board Member Yoav Andrew Leitersdorf.

"YL Ventures are a perfect partner for us. In addition to funding, they take an active role in supporting our rapid growth with both strategic advice and operational execution," said Grindlinger.
