With the aim of securing DevOps Pipelines and Prevent Code Tampering, Cycode has raised  $20 Million Series A Round From Insight Partners

In addition to the Series A funding, Cycode also announced the signing of new customers including: Grubhub, Databricks, Flexport, Rapyd, Copart and Cobalt. Further, Cycode has hired Dor Atias as VP of R&D, Tom Kennedy as VP of Sales and Andrew Fife as VP of Marketing.

Cycode, an innovator in securing DevOps pipelines, today announced a $20 million Series A round led by Insight Partners, with participation from seed investor, YL Ventures. The new funding brings total investment to $25 million and positions Cycode to accelerate growth into securing enterprise DevOps tools such as source control management systems, build systems and cloud infrastructure.

As the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) has become faster and more automated, slow application security processes have often been deprioritized in favor of new feature velocity. Additionally, many of the new tools that drive the automation and efficiency in application development have opened up new attack surfaces and created new security challenges. The adoption of Everything as Code means attacks no longer have to start in production. In development, gaining access to source control management systems enables code tampering, finding passwords to critical systems and modifying cloud configurations (through code) to allow unauthorized access.

“Modernizing the SDLC has created new security gaps that attackers are readily exploiting,” said Ronen Slavin, CTO and co-founder of Cycode. “Recent supply chain attacks like SolarWinds and Codecov, major source code leaks from Microsoft and Nissan, and attacks targeting developers like Sawfish and XcodeSpy demonstrate that the battlefield is already shifting.”

Cycode protects DevOps tools such as source control management systems, build systems, registries and cloud infrastructure. The solution addresses multiple layers of security, including access and authorization, security configurations, compliance and scanning engines. This enables customers to identify code tampering, code leakage, hardcoded secrets, Infrastructure as Code (IaC) misconfigurations, excess privileges and more, all from a single platform.

To ensure customers never have to choose between security and speed, Cycode provides workflows to automate remediation. Customers can also seamlessly integrate remediation into their developers’ workflows via pre-built integrations with pull requests, alerting and ticketing systems.

“As the leading Pentest as a Service company, our internal security has always been paramount,” said Ray Espinoza, CISO at Cobalt. “Cycode has saved us a massive number of hours hardening our source control management system, enforcing security configurations and preventing secrets from entering our code. Plus, by plugging seamlessly into our developers’ workflows, our team adopted Cycode right away.”

Today, Cycode launches its knowledge graph to derive security insights from the rapidly increasing volumes of data and alerts that are overwhelming security teams. Through an agentless architecture, Cycode collects asset information and user activity from DevOps tools, infrastructure and security scanners, which is then mapped in its knowledge graph. By correlating events across the SDLC, Cycode’s knowledge graph creates contextual insights, helps prioritize remediation, reduces false positives and ensures the integrity of the pipeline to prevent code tampering incidents, such as the breaches at SolarWinds and Codecov.

“The problem of protecting CI/CD tools like GitHub, Jenkins and AWS is a gap for virtually every enterprise,” said Jon Rosenbaum, principal at Insight Partners, who will join Cycode’s board of directors. “Cycode secures CI/CD pipelines in an elegant, developer-centric manner. This positions the company to be a leader within the new breed of application security companies — those that are rapidly expanding the market with solutions which secure every release without sacrificing velocity.” “With these new funds, part of the focus will naturally be on expanding sales and marketing efforts,” said Lior Levy, CEO and co-founder of Cycode. “What I’m really excited about is expanding Cycode’s platform with even more integrations into CI/CD and security tools to increase the power of our knowledge graph. Furthermore, we’re releasing a low-code query engine and a knowledge-sharing community that will enable security teams without development expertise to leverage the full power of the graph.”
