WhiteSource, a provider in open source security and management, has raised $75 million in Series D funding, enabling the company to continue to grow its automated open source security solutions.
“Application security needs have gone beyond just detection to include continuous prioritization and prevention, as demonstrated by recent software supply chain attacks,” said Rami Sass, co-Founder and CEO of WhiteSource. “This investment brings us closer to creating a future where the cycle of application delivery is always a step ahead of any security risk, and where developers are easily equipped with code they can trust.”
This funding round was led by Pitango Growth, with participation by existing investors M12, Susquehanna Growth Equity, and 83North. This additional round brings WhiteSource’s total funding to $121.2 million.
