Centralizing application security

ArmorCode claims that its platform's core capabilities are in application security posture management, according to a term used by the company and several other vendors.

According to ArmorCode, application security posture management centralizes app security findings from tools for static application security testing (SAST), dynamic application security testing (DAST) and software composition analysis (SCA). The solution also prioritizes the findings, reduces triage time, and serves as a record for application security findings and remediation.

Nikhil Gupta, the founder and CEO of ArmorCode, said in an email that it provides integrations with more than 80 security, development, and operational capabilities out-of-the-box.

ArmorCode's platform merges its application security posture management solution with other capabilities, including vulnerability management, continuous compliance, and workflow automation for (development, security, and operations).

According to Gupta, some of the top companies in the space are Enso, Threadfix (acquired by Coalfire) and CodeDx (acquired by Synopsys).

ArmorCode isn't the only platform to enable organizations to scale application security postures, compliance and vulnerability management, according to the group. DevSecOps workflow automation are all from a single platform, according to the author.

Growth funding is backed by investors.

Cervin Ventures funded the additional seed funding, which included investments from Sierra Ventures which had been responsible for the startup's initial funding that was announced last May and Tau Ventures.

ArmorCode plans to expand its workforce from 50 to 75 in the next six months with the help of the company, according to Gupta.

ArmorCode intends to expand its capabilities around providing insights and automation to better streamline DevSecOps orchestration while improving application security overall.
