BluBracket
Focus: Securing enterprise code
Funding: $6.5M (Seed)
Founded: 2019
BluBracket was founded last year by Prakash Linga and Ajay Arora, both security entrepreneurs who saw the need for a technology that helped businesses better secure the code on which they run.
The company's technology helps organizations better understand their code's location and accessibility; detect potential risks in their code; protect the code with visibility, alerting, and remediation; and enforce security policies across security, development, and DevOps teams. It integrates with existing tools, including GitHub, GitLab, Slack, Bitbucket, Jira, and ServiceNow.
'We were told that cybersecurity had become so critical to what these customers do and that they quickly needed to figure out: Who has access to their platform? What's going on with it? Are hackers trying to gain access? Is the business' intellectual property getting stolen? Is there a new vector of attack?' says Arora in an interview.
