Probely, a San Francisco, CA-based premier cloud-based dynamic application security testing solution, announced that it closed a €7.7 million in Series A funding.
The round was co-led by Iberis Capital and Semapa Next, with participation from TIIN Capital, Bright Pixel Capital, Caixa Capital, Portugal Ventures, and EDP Ventures.
This funding will enable Probely to strengthen the team and continue its international growth, especially in the United States.
"Our team of co-founders came from an application security team. We all experienced first-hand the hard task of scaling application security testing.", Nuno Loureiro, CEO, and co-founder of Probely explains. "Given the shortage in Security professionals, it can only scale if you shift security testing left, allowing developers to become the protagonists in automated security testing. We designed and built Probely to enable both Security and Development teams to embrace application security testing."
