Work-Bench Snapshot: Augmenting Streaming and Batch Processing Workflows
The Work-Bench Snapshot Series explores the top people, blogs, videos, and more, shaping the enterprise on a particular topic we’re looking at from an investment standpoint.
We’re excited to announce our investment in SeeMetrics’s $6M Seed round, alongside 8VC, Essence VC, AGP, and Verissimo Ventures.
SeeMetrics is a security portfolio management platform that consolidates all metric data from across the CISO organization, helping security teams monitor the performance and efficiency of their portfolio and provide actionable insight for stack optimization.
With the rate of attacks and high profile security incidents, from the recent Okta hack to the Log4j vulnerability late last year, it’s not unusual for security leaders to get asked more and more often by their Board, fellow executives, and team members, “Does this affect us? Are we protected? How secure are we?” Unfortunately, pulling that information for reference is anything but easy or quick.
After conversations with many security leaders, it was clear that this is a huge challenge and stems from:
The SeeMetrics platform unifies all metrics into a single source of truth, empowering CISOs and their teams with an easy-to-use and real-time view into their current operations.
Going forward, we can expect security metrics to play an even larger role for security teams. Not only will it help improve effectiveness by enabling the tracking of performance progress over time, but it will also provide security leaders visibility into how their security budget is spent and which investments are paying off.
SeeMetrics is founded by Shirley Salzman, Mike Admon, and Shay Haluba and based in Israel. It wasn’t hard to see the massive vision the SeeMetrics team had for elevating security metrics after hearing about Mike’s long history as a security practitioner (most recently as CISO of Bright Machines) mixed with Shirley’s deep history in GTM and Shay’s engineering and R&D leadership.
On top of that, they’ve assembled a stellar team and are already seeing validation from several large early customers and design partners across Israel and the US, as well as industry advisors (including Jason Chan, ex-VP of Information Security at Netflix).
