Read the full article in Yahoo! Finance, an AI-powered cloud infrastructure remediation platform, has raised over $5 million in a seed funding round led by Glilot Capital and Hetz Ventures, with participation from strategic angel investors. The platform, which emerged from private beta testing, is already being used by Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies. Gomboc's AI engine generates precise and secure Infrastructure as Code (IaC), maintaining an up-to-date understanding of major cloud service providers. This allows security teams to enforce cloud security policies continuously, while DevOps teams can immediately deploy fixes.

Gomboc's approach stands out in the cloud security industry for several reasons:

1. Immediate Remediation: Gomboc's platform eliminates the backlog of security remediations by enabling DevOps teams to approve fixes through pull requests, ensuring security findings are addressed promptly without overwhelming teams.

2. No Learning Curve: The AI engine is trained to work with various Infrastructure as Code platforms, removing the need for a learning curve when adopting new languages or tools. Security policies can be applied by dragging and dropping plain text, simplifying the process.

3. Deterministic AI: Gomboc's deterministic AI generates accurate code that adheres strictly to an organization's cloud environment and security standards, setting it apart from platforms that rely on statistically generated outcomes.

Investors and industry experts see Gomboc's approach as promising and necessary. Kobi Samboursky from Glilot Capital Partners views Gomboc as a solution to a persistent issue in cloud security and believes it will become essential for CISOs. The platform's founders, Ian Amit and Jonathan Desrocher, both bring strong backgrounds in cybersecurity and AI, having worked in senior roles at companies like Amazon.
