Contrast Security, a Los Altos, CA-based provider of self-protecting software with security safeguards built directly into critical applications, received a strategic corporate investment from AXA Strategic Ventures and Microsoft Ventures.
The amount of the deal – subsequent closing to Contrast’s Series C round announced in October 2017 – was not disclosed.
Led by Alan Naumann, CEO and board chairman, Contrast Security provides developers and security professionals with the tools they need to both detect software vulnerabilities early in development and maintain continuous application attack monitoring and blocking into production.
This Contrast Security platform combines Contrast Assess and Contrast Protect, which work together continuously across popular development (Agile, waterfall, etc.) and deployment (DevOps, cloud, containers, hybrid, etc.) methods to enable protection throughout the software lifecycle.
