No-code and low-code have huge advantages, but Israeli startups in the field also warn that their applications come with serious risks.
Israeli startup Torq, which raised $50 million earlier this month, has developed a platform that helps analysts in the cybersecurity teams of organizations build automatic security systems. Instead of needing to ensure that the authorization of an employee, who has left the company has been erased, for example, Torq can create a fixed script for this that can be used with short and simple commands.
Last August, Israeli startup Walnut raised $15 million. The company's platform allows salespeople at tech companies to create and design demos that are custom-made for their sales software. Walnut connects to the enterprise's software and allows the salespeople to create precise and carefully prepared scenarios that can be presented to customers.
While Walnut and Torq deal with completely different content worlds, they have something in common in that they both belong to the emerging 'no-code low-code movement.' This movement creates tools that allow the non-technical personnel in an organization, like salespeople and analysts, to develop applications in an intuitive and easy way through visual menus, without the need to write code. No-code generally refers tools that don't require any code knowhow, while low-code refers to tools that need basic knowledge, although the differences between them are blurred.
