Second Front Systems (2F), an Arlington, VA-based public-benefit software company focused on accelerating the delivery of mission-critical software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions to the government, announced today an oversubscribed $32 million in Series A funding.
The round was co-led by Moore Strategic Ventures and AEI HorizonX and joined by ARTIS Ventures, 8VC, Gula Tech Adventures, Abstract Ventures, Pallas Ventures, Gaingels, and Kleiner Perkins.
This investment will be used to grow 2F’s technical talent base as well as continue to introduce and mature cybersecurity testing and machine learning-driven automation for its fully managed and compliant DevSecOps platform Game Warden.
2F also seeks to scale up its sales and marketing efforts across a growing $22 billion market as the US Government and Department of Defense explore new avenues for adopting and integrating commercial, cloud-enabled technologies.
"It's a national security imperative for warfighters to have access to the best possible software tools to achieve their mission," said Peter Dixon, CEO at Second Front Systems. "That demands a modern, scalable approach to accrediting and continuously delivering applications at the speed of operational relevance."
With these funds, 2F expects to expand its availability to additional environments and across multiple cloud providers. GameWarden is currently delivered on AWS GovCloud with production environments available in Impact Levels 2, 4, and 5.
