ForAllSecure, which today announced raising a $21 million series B funding round, said that the customer base for its autonomous application security testing solution has quadrupled over the past year. The company also debuted a free version of its Mayhem product aimed at helping developers to secure open-source projects.
The company is working to bring an algorithmic approach to enabling automated, rapid identification of vulnerabilities for application security (AppSec) teams, according to David Brumley, cofounder and CEO at ForAllSecure.
“We’ve carefully chosen and architected our approach to make autonomy possible in AppSec,” Brumley said in an email to VentureBeat. “We are getting rid of the scan and making all results actionable — and if you dare, [you can] even remove the human from the loop.”
