BoostSecurity, a developer-first DevSecOps automation platform, has secured $12m for its seed round, as it emerges from stealth.
Sorenson Capital, a multi-stage investor focused on B2B SaaS, served as the lead backer. Other commitments came from Hoxton Ventures, Golden Ventures, Firebolt Ventures and Transform VC.
With the capital, BoostSecurity hopes to accelerate its go-to-market and engineering initiatives.
The DevSecOps automation platform claims to solve problems organisations have been plagued with – building software fast, while doing it securely.
It stated that security tooling is needed at various stages in the develop, build, test, and release processes. However, these security measures come at the expense of friction to development, velocity slowdown, and security noise for development teams.
Additionally, the tools and environments where software is being built, have become the target of cyberattacks themselves, it claims.
BoostSecurity disrupts DevSecOps through automation. Its technology means clients can secure CI/CD pipelines, ship code fast, run all the necessary security checks on every commit, and fix issues as they build code.
BoostSecurity CEO Zaid Al Hamami said, “Most software organisations do not have the resources to implement the same grade of automation and optimisation as hyperscale companies do when it comes to shipping software fast and securely.
“BoostSecurity empowers organisations of any size to implement the same DevSecOps processes and technologies that the most advanced organisations have refined, ultimately closing the trust gap between DevOps and security. Our platform enables early detection and remediation of security vulnerabilities at every layer of the stack while ensuring the continuous integrity of the software supply chain at every step from the developer’s keyboard to cloud production.”
Sorenson Capital has backed a number of FinTech companies over the past year. It recently joined the $54m Series B funding round of Tive, a provider of real-time supply chain visibility insights.
