Alcide Advances Cloud-Native Security Firewall Platform

November 21, 2018 / Sean Michael Kerner

In the era of cloud-native application deployments, with containers, microservices and serverless architectures, traditional firewall technologies are typically a less than ideal solution.Among the vendors that have emerged to tackle the challenge of microservices visibility is Israeli startup Alcide, which has positioned itself as a microservices firewall platform vendor. On Nov. 20, Alcide announced that it raised $7 million in a Series A round of funding, bringing total funding to date for the company to $12.2 million. Among Alcide's investors is CE Ventures, Intel Capital and Elron. Our approach is based on how the holy triangle between infrastructure, networking and applications should look like in a modern environment," Ranny Nachmias, CEO and co-founder of Alcide, told eWEEK.
