BoostSecurity, a Montreal, Canada-based 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.
The round was led by Sorenson Capital, with participation from Hoxton Ventures, Golden Ventures, Firebolt Ventures, and Transform VC.
The funds will be used to accelerate the platform's go-to-market and engineering initiatives.
"Most software organizations do not have the resources to implement the same grade of automation and optimization as hyperscale companies do when it comes to shipping software fast and securely," said Zaid Al Hamami, CEO at BoostSecurity. "BoostSecurity empowers organizations of any size to implement the same DevSecOps processes and technologies that the most advanced organizations 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."
BoostSecurity's SaaS helps engineering and security teams secure the software supply chain against CI/CD misconfigurations, insider threats, compromised dependencies, and more.
