In tandem, Jscrambler also announced Pedro Abreu has joined as an independent board member to contribute to the company’s vision, roadmap and product-market fit.

Over the last few years, supply chain attacks have been growing steadily, reaching all-time highs in 2021 with the SolarWinds attack and thus prompting a global call for improved supply chain cybersecurity. Attackers have been rapidly pivoting to the web, exploiting companies’ reliance on third-party code to launch massive attacks that leak sensitive user data in millions of websites. Current browser native defenses and traditional security approaches fail to address these weaknesses in the web supply chain, allowing attackers to target the client-side (i.e., everything that takes place on the browser or end-user device). Web App Client-Side Protection is one of the key categories in Application Security and Jscrambler is recognized by Gartner as a leader in this space.

The company now seeks to reach yet another groundbreaking stage in its product offering development, after having established itself as the standard in client-side web security with cutting-edge technology that protects the source code of web and mobile applications from thousands of enterprises across the globe. Continuing a strong R&D investment that spans over a decade, this funding will also drive an integrated solution that ensures website owners can protect the client-side to secure user data, mitigate fraud and user hijacking, and improve compliance with regulations (GDPR, CCPA, PSD2, HIPAA, PCI DSS, among others) through a transparent, frictionless deployment.
“We are at a critical turning point in web security. This year’s streak of high-profile software supply chain attacks has put everyone on guard against the massive damages inflicted when attackers breach critical applications of private and public organizations,” said Rui Ribeiro, Jscrambler co-founder and CEO. “We anticipated this trend years ago and are successfully delivering differentiated technology and expertise to solve client-side attacks, enabling us to win over demanding customers, from Fortune 500 companies and SMEs alike. This investment and the addition of Pedro Abreu as a board member is precisely what we needed to drive expansion while still shaping the forefront of application security.”
