Rick Whiting

Security tech providers Apiiro and Bishop Fox, big data software developers Alation and MotherDuck, and machine learning startup Galileo are among the companies that raised new financing in November, a list led by data and memory connectivity technology startup Astera Labs.

Boost Security

Headquarters: Montreal, Quebec

CEO: Zaid Al Hamami

Funding: A $12 million seed funding round.

Investors: The round was led by Sorenson Capital with participation from Hoxton Ventures, Golden Ventures, Firebolt Ventures, Transform VC and Security Leadership Capital.

What company does: Boost Security provides a developer-first DevSecOps automation platform that is designed to build security into the “software supply chain” including the develop, build, test and release stages of a CI/CD (continuous integration/continuous delivery) process.

CEO Quote: “Most software organizations do not have the resources to implement the same grade of automation and optimization as hyperscale companies do when it comes to shipping software fast and securely. BoostSecurity empowers organizations of any size to implement the same DevSecOps processes and technologies that the most advanced organizations have refined, ultimately closing the trust gap between DevOps and security. Our platform enables early detection and remediation of security vulnerabilities at every layer of the stack while ensuring the continuous integrity of the software supply chain at every step from the developer’s keyboard to cloud production.”
