December 28, 2016 | Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei reportedly will acquire Israeli database security and compliance solutions startup Hexatier. The deal is worth $42 million according to reports by Israeli financial daily Calcalist. Originally GreenSQL, the company rebranded itself earlier this year to Hexatier. The company focuses on database security, dynamic data masking, activity monitoring, and “discovery of sensitive data.” Additionally, their software lets system managers create rule dependent restrictions for access based on a number of factors like IP address, seniority, and geography (among other things). Hexatier was founded in 2009 by CEO Amir Sadeh, Director of Sales Hadar Eshel, and CTO David Maman. They have 40 employees split between offices in Tel Aviv, Boston, and California.
