Bridgecrew, a San Francisco, CA-based company that enables organizations to automatically deploy cloud security engineering, emerged from stealth mode raising $14m in Series A funding.
The round was led by global investment firm Battery Ventures with participation from NFX, who led Bridgecrew’s $4 million seed round, with participation from Sorensen Ventures, DNX Ventures, Tectonic Ventures, and Homeward Ventures and strategic investors Kevin Mahaffey; David Hannigan; David Tsao; Srinath Kuruvadi; and Ely Kahn.
The company intends to use the funds to launch its platform and expand operations.
Founded in 2019 by Idan Tendler, Barak Schoster Goihman, and Guy Eisenkot, Bridgecrew provides a Codified Cloud Security platform that enables DevSecOps engineers to quickly secure cloud infrastructure and conduct remediation delivered as code.
The solution allows anyone, anywhere inside an organization can monitor and automatically remediate cloud infrastructure insecure configurations. Remediations and fixes can be accessed through the command line, existing development ecosystems (CI/CD tools such as GitHub or CircleCl), ticketing systems such as Jira, or through consoles.
Bridgecrew has already created dozens of playbooks for AWS configurations as well as Cloudformation and Terraform templates that allow teams to automate fixes for misconfigurations, infrastructure drift, or vulnerabilities in both build-time and run-time environments. The system is already used by security and engineering teams at dozens of high-growth tech companies to automate their DevSecOps work and reduce costs.
The company is based in San Francisco, CA, with R&D in Tel Aviv, Israel.
