Cybersecurity company Enso Security closes its seed round on $6m

Enso Security, which builds application security posture management, has closed its seed round on $6m.

The investment was led by YL Ventures, with contributions also coming from Jump Capital, former Bank of America chief security scientist Sounil Yu, HackerOne co-founder and CTO Alex Rice, the Luminate founders, former JPMorgan Chase executive director Omkhar Arasaratnam and toDay Ventures.

Enso is designed to be an inventory of record for AppSec, enabling teams to manage application security at scale. Its application security posture management technology creates application inventories and dedicated workflows to manage risk-reduction in development.

Copart chief information security officer Joshua Danielson said, “R&D departments across enterprises are introducing new applications and pushing updates to existing ones faster than ever.

“This means incredible things for enterprises but also creates a great deal of technical debt for application security teams who are struggling to track applications in their environments, identify owners, measure risks, prioritize tasks, and enforce a uniform security strategy across all applications.”

Clients can use Enso to discover applications, identify owners, detect changes, and capture security posture, and more.

Enso Security CEO and co-founder Roy Erlich said, “We’ve lived the chaos of enterprise application security firsthand, taking inventory blind and clashing with production deadlines. It isn’t sustainable, which is why we built a toolbox that is easy to deploy and can streamline the AppSec process to improve organization-wide security.

“AppSec shouldn’t have to be stressful or adversarial. Enso aligns AppSec with the development process—without making security an obstacle.”
