About the Company: DeepFactor is the industry’s first continuous AppSec observability platform for cloud-native applications that enables Engineering teams to find and fix supply chain, security, privacy, and compliance risks in running applications—including 3rd party components—within the DevOps pipeline. In parallel, AppSec teams can establish governance and manage alert policies. With zero code changes, DeepFactor automatically observes billions of live telemetry events in every thread/process/container to detect anomalies during a test, staging, and production. Customers receive unparalleled runtime insights, extraordinary visibility into the software supply chain, prioritized vulnerabilities with reduced SCA alert volume, enhanced DAST insights, and faster scans. DeepFactor plans to introduce a SaaS offering to complement the self-hosted version which is 100% architected for Kubernetes and can be deployed on EKS, AKS, GKE, EC2, or VMware.
