Software Development Security Firm Argon Emerges From Stealth Mode

Argon, an Israel-based company that provides solutions for securing the software development process, on Tuesday announced emerging from stealth mode.

The company has developed a solution that provides visibility, security and integrity capabilities to help DevOps and security teams ensure that their development environment has not been compromised.

Argon says its product enables organizations to secure their continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline by mapping tools, assets and user activity to provide visibility into their entire DevOps process and ensure that code has not been tampered with. The solution can be integrated with many popular software development tools.

The platform continuously monitors the customer’s environment to identify security risks, anomalies and misconfigurations. Identified issues are prioritized and remediation is automated in accordance with compliance rules and best practices.

The startup has raised more than $4 million in seed funding from Hyperwise Ventures and several cybersecurity angel investors.

“The way companies release software has evolved from a manual, controlled and timed process to one that is fully automated, distributed and complex,” said Eylam Milner, CTO of Argon. “Vendors deploy new code on a daily basis, and it’s irrational for them to expect their DevOps and security teams to protect their release pipelines without a dedicated solution.”
