API security startup Impart Security closes seed round on $6m

API security platform Impart Security has reportedly collected $6m in its seed funding round.

Early-stage venture capital firm Charles River Ventures (CRV) served as the lead investor, with commitments also coming from Haystack, 8-bit Capital and AlphaTech Ventures, according to a report from Venture Beat.

Impart claims to offer instant protection for APIs and microservices, offering threat detection, automated API discovery and run time protection.

Clients can find all the APIs in their environment within minutes and compare them with API specifications. It claims businesses can see shadow, zombie, non-conforming, and sensitive data API endpoints across any tech stack and any environment.

Impart CEO and cofounder Jonathan DiVincenzo told Venture Beat, “While other platforms and technologies can detect security threats, Impart is the only one to also provide out-of-the-box solutions to those vulnerabilities. The last thing we want to do is be a noisy alerting system – we aim to solve problems for security practitioners, not add to their workload.”

The CyberTech company is currently conducting a closed beta with a select group of commerce and enterprise customers.

Fellow API security platform Corsha recently closed its Series A round on $12m. The company claims to solve the growing security concerns facing enterprises as attacks on APIs increase.
