Application Security Posture Management Firm Enso Security Emerges From Stealth

Enso Security, a company that claims to have built the first application security posture management (ASPM) platform, emerged from stealth mode on Wednesday with $6 million in seed funding.

The Israel-based company was founded by three individuals previously responsible for application security at cloud-based web development company Wix.com: Roy Erlich, who will serve as Enso’s CEO; Barak Tawily, who will serve as CTO; and Chen Gour Arie, who will serve as CPO.

The company secured $6 million in seed funding in a round led by YL Ventures, with participation from Jump Capital and several industry leaders.

Enso Security says it has developed a platform designed to help organizations manage application security at scale, providing all the capabilities the company’s founders wished for as application security practitioners.

The platform leverages data from existing tools to provide visibility into all applications developed by an organization. This includes full application inventory, ownership, and risk scores, enabling security teams to prioritize and coordinate AppSec activities, without interfering with developer workloads.

Users of the Enso platform can also perform custom queries to obtain insight on applications based on their data attributes.

The platform integrates with development and security products from dozens of vendors, including Graylog, Jenkins, GitLab, GitHub, Checkmarx, Jira, Sumo Logic, Acunetix, Splunk, Azure, Monday, Elastic, Nginx and HackerOne.

“We’ve lived the chaos of enterprise application security firsthand, taking inventory blind and clashing with production deadlines. It isn’t sustainable, which is why we built a toolbox that is easy to deploy and can streamline the AppSec process to improve organization-wide security,” said Enso CEO Roy Erlich. “AppSec shouldn’t have to be stressful or adversarial. Enso aligns AppSec with the development process—without making security an obstacle.”

The Enso Security platform is currently available only to qualified customers.
