Sym, a Boston, MA- and San Francisco, CA-based security workflow platform for engineers, raised $9m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Amplify Partners, with participation from angel investors Gerhard Eschelbeck, former CISO of Google, Sri Viswanath, CTO of Atlassian, and Jason Warner, CTO of GitHub also participated.
The company will use the funds to expand its engineering team and scale its sales and marketing operations.
Led by Yasyf Mohamedali, CEO, Sym provides a platform that enables developers to incorporate security, privacy, and governance controls into their software development workspace and process. The platform contains dozens of pre-built templates that both translate common security policies into code and pre-integrate into common developer technology stacks such as identity systems like Okta, and messaging systems like Slack, plus a framework for customizing them in a way that minimizes engineering effort.
