Scribe Security, an Israeli startup seeking to protect the software supply chain, has raised $7 million in seed funding.
The investment round was led by Elron Ventures and received participation from various other investors, including Tal Ventures and YYM Ventures.
Scribe offers an end-to-end software supply chain protection platform designed to provide security throughout the entire product lifecycle, from the early design phases all the way up to deployment and update.
The company claims its platform can help organizations build, distribute, and maintain internally-developed code, while also allowing them to check the authenticity, integrity, provenance, and reputation of third-party components.

According to Scribe, its end-to-end solution enables rapid deployment of applications and delivers advanced anomaly detection and tamper-proof evidence documentation, allowing vendors to vouch for the integrity of their software, to build trust.
Founded in 2021, the Tel Aviv-based Scribe Security plans to use the new investment to bring its SaaS solution to the market at a time when attacks targeting the software supply chain are on the rise.
“Attackers today are experts at identifying hidden opportunities in the software’s delivery life cycle. We protect against software supply chain attacks carried out by dependency manipulation, third-party software components, or during the code-delivery process,” Scribe co-founder and CEO Rubi Arbel said.
