Software supply chain security firm led by ex-Google engineers bags $5m

Software supply chain security company Chainguard has raised $5m from a seed funding round led by Amplify Partners.

The company was founded by Dan Lorenc and Kim Lewandowski – two former Google engineers – who have previously worked on Google’s supply chain security initiatives such as SLSA and Sigstore.

Based in Washington, Chainguard applies Zero-Trust principles to supply chain security to make the software lifecycle secure by default. The company claims it helps organisations manage their open source and overall software supply chain security risk.

The company claims it will use the funding to create open-source technology to make the software supply chain secure by default.

Chainguard co-founder Dan Lorenc said, “Meaningful security improvements require solutions for entire classes of bugs. We believe the best way to do that is to first learn by fixing a lot of them, one at a time.”

Alongside the funding influx, the firm will also create Chainguard Services – which is a plot program aimed at helping organisations address software supply chain attacks and insider risks.
