ArmorCode, a leader in AppSecOps, today announced it has secured a $14 million Series A investment led by Ballistic Ventures, the venture capital firm focused solely on backing cybersecurity startups, founded by Kevin Mandia, Barmak Meftah, Ted Schlein, Jake Seid, and Roger Thornton.
Other investors included Sierra Ventures, Cervin Ventures and industry luminaries such as John Donovan, the former CEO of AT&T Communications and board member of the Palo Alto Networks, Oliver Friedrichs, founder and former CEO of Phantom Cyber (acquired by Splunk), and John Jack, board member of Contra Security and Illumio.
Founded in July 2020, ArmorCode’s Series A brings its total funding to $25 million.
“The need for applications to ship fast, ship secure and compliant has become more critical than ever,” said Nikhil Gupta, CEO and co-founder of ArmorCode. “This funding and being able to close it in only two weeks provides further evidence of the importance of improving AppSec and breaking down the silos separating development, security and operations. This funding will help our business scale as we provide the industry-leading AppSecOps platform and enable more organizations to prioritize their AppSec posture.”
ArmorCode’s customers range from fast-growing cloud-native companies to some of the most respected brands in each of their categories. Its customers can get visibility across all their applications, application programming interfaces (APIs) and microservices in their environments to avoid blind spots and improve security.
