Pangea Cyber, a Palo Alto, CA-based security services SaaS platform, announced that it closed $26 million Series B funding to accelerate the delivery of its API-based security services.
The round was led by GV, with participation from Decibel and Okta Ventures, and joined by existing investors Ballistic Ventures and SYN Ventures. This brings the total funding raised for the one-year-old company to $52 million.
Pangea plans to use the funding for product development and to drive developer and builder adoption.
"Development teams simply lack the expertise to add security capabilities into their applications. With up to one million software companies anticipated by 2027 (according to Forrester), it's essential that the applications they build have access to a trustworthy framework of security functions," said Oliver Friedrichs, founder, and CEO of Pangea. "This new funding will help us to realize and accelerate that vision."
Pangea's Security Platform-as-a-Service framework is available for builders who need to add security functions to their applications.
