StackHawk, a Denver, CO-based application security startup, raised $10m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Sapphire Ventures and included return seed backers Foundry Group, Costanoa Ventures, Flybridge Capital, and Matchstick Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to continue product development, invest in go-to-market teams, and continue to support ZAP, the open source project that the company’s platform is built upon.
Led by Joni Klippert, founder & CEO, StackHawk is an application security testing platform that allows DevOps teams to instrument automated dynamic application security testing (DAST) in the CI/CD pipeline. With this approach, engineering teams can instrument automated testing with every pull request, ensuring that vulnerabilities are caught long before they hit production. And with a strong focus on features for software developers, application security can scale across the engineering organization, creating significant efficiencies in fixing security bugs.
