Cloud-native application security startup Slim.AI today announced that it has raised $31 million in Series A funding, which brings the total raised by the company to $37.6 million.
Slim.AI’s latest funding round was led by Insight Partners and StepStone Group and also received participation from Knollwood, boldstart Ventures, Decibel Partners, FXP, and TechAviv Founder Partners.
Founded in January 2021, the Boston-based company offers an open-source software and SaaS platform built atop of the DockerSlim open-source project and focuses on securing the supply chain for cloud-native applications.
Slim.AI says it provides a container-based workflow platform that supplies developers working in organizations large or small with the tools they need to deliver secure, production-ready containers.
“Developers and technology leaders alike are beginning to understand the need to optimize images before they go to production, minimizing the attack surface of their applications. The best vulnerability is the one you never ship,” John Amaral, CEO and co-founder at Slim.AI, said.
