Probely, the premier cloud-based dynamic application security testing solution, announced that it closed a 7.7 million euros Series A round co-led by Iberis Capital, a Portuguese venture capital with around 300 million euros in assets under management, and Semapa Next, a Lisbon-based venture capital firm that invests in Series A and B rounds in European-based companies.
The international investor specializing in cybersecurity, TIIN Capital, as well as current investors Bright Pixel Capital (former Sonae IM), Caixa Capital, Portugal Ventures, and EDP Ventures, also participated in the funding round.
“Our team of co-founders came from an Application Security team. We all experienced first-hand the hard task of scaling application security testing.”, Nuno Loureiro, CEO, and co-founder of Probely explains. “Given the shortage in Security professionals, it can only scale if you shift security testing left, allowing developers to become the protagonists in automated security testing. We designed and built Probely to enable both Security and Development teams to embrace application security testing.”
