Ubiq Security, a San Diego, CA-based developer-focused security startup, raised $6.4m in seed funding.
The round was led by Okapi Venture Capital, an early investor in Crowdstrike, with participation from TenOneTen Ventures, Cove Fund, DLA Piper Venture, Volta Global, and Alexandria Venture Investments.
The company will use the funds to accelerate platform development, developer relations, and customer acquisition.
Led by Wias Issa, CEO, Ubiq Security is a cybersecurity startup that has built an API-based developer platform that eliminates the traditional complexities of encryption and key management, allowing developers and information security teams – even those without encryption or cryptography expertise – to integrate data encryption directly into applications in minutes, with a few lines of code and two API calls. Teams can encrypt data across diverse applications and programming languages, cloud environments, and storage types.
The dashboard allows developers or members of their security teams to select from proven, best-practice encryption models and policies for all of their applications in a central location, provides key management and FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant key storage, and a complete log of key access and activity.
