NightVision Raises $5.4 Million for Application Security Testing

NightVision, an early stage startup in the application security testing space, has raised $5.4 million in seed funding.

NightVision, a startup working on technology in the application security testing space, on Monday announced that it has raised $5.4 million in seed funding from several angel investors.

Founded in 2022, the US-based newcomer to the dynamic application security testing (DAST) space helps companies and developers identify software security vulnerabilities and address them early in the development lifecycle.

Covering API and web application security, NightVision said its technology will simulate attacks to identify exploitable defects before they enter production and integrate directly with the standard development workflows and CI/CD pipelines.

According to the company, it enables developers to easily scan their code, identify flaws, and get highlights of the flawed lines of code with a streamlined process that leads to secure development.

The product also lets customers scan apps on public and private networks, and can discover undocumented APIs through modern greybox crawling.

“In recent years, there’s been an explosion of custom applications, APIs, and microservices – but the application security testing industry has been unable to keep up with the rapid pace of development. Especially now that developers are building faster with AI-assisted solutions, this has to change, now more than ever,” NightVision CTO and co-founder Kinnaird McQuade said.
