Security firm Stacklok bags $17.5m in Series A


Stacklok, a company focused on bringing security solutions to developers working with open-source software, has raised $17.5m in a Series A raise.

The barriers to entry in terms of accessing, integrating, and ultimately consuming open-source software technologies are being lowered every day.

From the growing ecosystem of open-source libraries that contribute between 70 and 90% of deployed code today to the emergence of large language models as a force for productivity, the explosion in the volume of code being built and deployed by enterprise companies is continuing to increase dramatically.

Stacklok is harnessing the power of open-source projects like sigstore to deliver enterprise-grade solutions to address these urgent problems.

Stacklok claims its open-source platform will integrate within common development environments to help developers understand and mitigate risks in their day-to-day work in both their tool choices and their code dependencies, integrate a tamper-proof ledger for development teams that enables them to generate ‘proof’ of their best practices and enable operations teams to make policy decisions on what software may be deployed to a production environment based on an understanding of how it was produced, and communicate those needs clearly back to developers who are building the software

With an increasing number of high-profile cyber-attacks targeting software supply chains, the need for robust security measures has never been more urgent, Stacklok stated.

Stacklok CTO and co-founder Luke Hinds said, “Our mission is to safeguard the integrity of the software supply chain, by leveraging open-source technologies such as sigstore, to enable developers to operate with confidence, and focus on their core objective of writing code. Stacklok will bring much needed end-to-end provenance and insight to the software supply chain.”

Eagle Eye Networks and Brivo, two independent companies leading the charge in cloud video surveillance and cloud-based access control respectively, have announced a significant investment deal, bringing in $192m together.
