Whistic, a Salt Lake City, UT-based proactive vendor security platform for both buyers and sellers, closed a $12m Series A funding.
The round was led by Emergence with participation from Album VC and existing investors. Emergence’s Gordon Ritter and Carlotta Siniscalco will join the Whistic Board of Directors as a part of this funding round.
The company intends to use the funds to scale operations and continue to hire top talent.
Led by Nick Sorensen, CEO, Whistic is a provider of proactive vendor security for companies to publish and evaluate security posture to build trust. The Whistic Trust Catalog® now contains over 14,000 company profiles that can be assessed on-demand, and notable customers include Airbnb, Okta, Betterment, Vonage, Qualtrics, and other world-leading brands within healthcare, manufacturing, energy, and education.
As part of the growth, Whistic recently welcomed two new senior executives, Duane Newman, VP Product and Tom Rhoton, VP Marketing, who come to the company from tenured roles at Symantec. Newman was previously Sr. Director of Product Management and brings strong experience in building and guiding product strategy, and Rhoton was VP Global Digital Marketing and Marketing Operations where he led all direct marketing efforts.
