BoostSecurity Exits Stealth with $12M in Seed Funding to Build Trust into the Software Supply Chain
November 2022 by Marc Jacob
BoostSecurity®, the developer-first, zero friction DevSecOps automation platform that builds trust into every step of the software supply chain, has emerged from stealth with $12 million in seed funding. Led by Sorenson Capital, with additional support from Hoxton Ventures, Golden Ventures, Firebolt Ventures and Transform VC, the investment will be used to accelerate the platform’s go-to-market and engineering initiatives.
BoostSecurity solves the problems that have plagued organizations that are trying to ship software fast, while doing it securely. The modern technology stack is complex, as is the modern CI/CD pipeline. Security tooling is needed at various stages in the develop, build, test, and release processes. However, all these additional security measures come at the expense of friction to development, velocity slowdown, and security noise for development teams. Moreover, the tools and environments where software is being built, have become the target of cyberattacks themselves.
BoostSecurity disrupts DevSecOps by bringing the automation that hyperscale companies developed internally to all. Now, organizations can secure CI/CD pipelines, ship code fast, run all the necessary security checks on every commit, and fix issues as they are building code along the way, all without additional personnel, services or infrastructure.
In addition to the challenge of shipping secure software, BoostSecurity’s SaaS offering helps all engineering and security teams contend with the challenging task of securing the software supply chain itself against CI/CD misconfigurations, insider threats, compromised dependencies, and more.
