Noname Security achieves unicorn status, one year after exiting stealth, with $135 million Series C
The cybersecurity startup, which has raised $220 million to date, analyzes configuration, traffic, and code to identify the broadest set of API vulnerabilities
Noname Security was founded in 2020 by CEO Oz Golan and CTO Shay Levi. The company has headquarters in Palo Alto, California, and an R&D center in Tel Aviv. Golan was formerly the Director of Engineering at NSO and served with Levi in Unit 8200 of the Israeli Defense Forces.
“Enterprises across all industries are experiencing widespread digitization, accelerating the adoption of thousands of new APIs and the critical need to secure them for businesses on a global scale,” said Oz Golan, co-founder and CEO at Noname Security. “With the backing of Georgian, along with our existing investors, we will continue to expand our industry-leading technology to help our customers mitigate the risk of deploying APIs.”
Noname Security’s surge in adoption can be attributed to its proactive approach to API security throughout the full software development lifecycle. Unlike most solutions in the market today that rely solely on traffic analysis to pinpoint active attacks, Noname Security analyzes configuration, traffic, and code to identify the broadest set of API vulnerabilities — including misconfigurations and design flaws.
