TL;DR we raised a lot of money and we’re ready to go big. We've raised $17M to bring “no BS” security to devs. We’re happy to welcome Henri Tilloy from Singular.vc on board, who is again joined by Notion Capital and Connect Ventures. This round comes just 6 months after we raised $5.3M in seed funding. That’s fast.

Most security tools waste developers’ time. We’re on a mission to fix this. Application Developers aren't paid to care about security. Their performance is measured by the speed at which they can add value to the business through new features or enhancements. This makes traditional security tools a hindrance as they're not built for developers — plus, they're not designed to be helpful.

This is a question we get a lot from our customers. The NIS2 Directive’s wording is not always very explicit. NIS2 is a framework that countries need to implement. Because it’s a Directive and not a Regulation, each EU country has the autonomy to roll it out under their own interpretation. NIS2’s language is broad, making it challenging to get your head around, especially until countries publish their specifics.

Aikido Security is an automated application security platform designed specifically for software engineering teams.

We secure your entire stack - code, open-source dependencies, infrastructure, and more and integrate into your existing workflows to provide visibility and control across your entire application infrastructure.

Our goal is to simplify security for developers through features like auto-triage of vulnerabilities, tied to whether the vulnerable code is actually used. This cuts through the noise, enabling engineering teams to focus on what matters most. Trusted by leading technology companies and validated by security experts, Aikido is the easiest way to implement application security monitoring and achieve compliance with regulations like ISO & SOC2.

We focus on the developer experience, allowing engineering teams to fix critical problems without security getting in the way of building.

The only platform that satisfies all code & cloud security needs for scaling dev teams.
