BoostSecurity, a Montreal-based developer of a DevSecOps automation platform, has emerged from stealth to raise C$12 million in seed financing.

Sorenson Capital led the round, with participation from Hoxton Ventures, Golden Ventures, Firebolt Ventures and Transform VC.

The capital infusion will be used to accelerate the platform’s go-to-market and engineering initiatives.

BoostSecurity disrupts DevSecOps by bringing the automation that hyperscale companies developed internally to everyone. Organizations can secure CI/CD pipelines, ship code fast, run all the necessary security checks on every commit, and fix issues as they are building code along the way, all without additional personnel, services or infrastructure.

“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,” said Zaid Al Hamami, CEO at BoostSecurity, in a statement. “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.”

“Even with the increased awareness and the exploding industry around developer security, we believe that we are still in the early innings of a major transformation. The world now knows how to ship high quality code, rapidly. The next challenge is continuing to do both, but much more securely,” said Vidya Raman, partner at Sorensen Venture. “I’m thrilled to be part of the BoostSecurity journey as they set out to transform how software supply chain security is done.”

BoostSecurity has US operations in Silicon Valley.
