Application Intelligence Firm Bionic Emerges From Stealth With $17M in Funding

Palo-Alto, California-based application intelligence startup Bionic on Thursday announced that it has emerged from stealth mode with $17 million in seed and Series A funding.

Palo-Alto, California-based application intelligence startup Bionic on Thursday announced that it has emerged from stealth mode with $17 million in seed and Series A funding.

The company’s platform is designed to help enterprises perform an inventory of their applications (including cloud, Kubernetes and on-premises), identify their entire architecture, APIs and data flows, and track critical application changes.

Bionic says its platform is fully automated, it can be deployed in minutes, and it doesn’t require any agents. The company says the product is already used by security, IT and operations teams at global tech and financial services companies.

“Very few enterprises have a handle on their applications,” said Gili Raanan, general partner at Sequoia Capital, founder of Cyberstarts, and one of the early Bionic investors. “Bionic has built a platform that is truly unique, using automation and advanced reverse engineering capabilities to deliver the pervasive visibility and controls enterprises need to reduce operational risk and remediate security gaps of applications before they are deployed to production.”

“Application architectures are rapidly transforming, and IT, operations, and security teams are hard pressed to ensure proper governance,” said Bob Laliberte, practice director and senior analyst at ESG. “Bionic delivers application intelligence across any architecture, infrastructure, or location. Legacy manual methods of obtaining application visibility are simply not up to the task, requiring countless hours of manual effort that is essentially wasted, as the results are outdated as soon as they are completed. Bionic is delivering a continuously updated, single source of truth for the entire application environment.”

Bionic was founded last year by Idan Ninyo (CEO) and Eyal Mamo (CTO). The company’s Series A funding round was led by Battery Ventures investors Dharmesh Thakker and René Bonvanie.
