Security Compass Receives Funding for Product Development and Expansion
Toronto, Canada-based Security Compass has received additional funding from growth equity investment firm FTV Capital. The amount has not been disclosed, indicating that it is likely to be on the smaller side.
According to the security firm, the purpose of the cash injection is to allow it to enhance its product portfolio and accelerate a planned global expansion.
The company was founded by Nish Bhalla in 2005. Former COO Rohit Sethi becomes the new CEO. Bhalla remains on the Board, and is joined by Liron Gitig and Richard Liu from FTV Capital.
Long-serving Sethi was Security Compass' first hire, and was an integral part of the creation of the company's SD Elements platform -- now the focus of the firm' operations. SD Elements helps customers put the Sec into DevOps without losing DevOps's development agility.
"The strong trends towards agile development in DevOps," he says, "increased focus on application security and on improving risk management are on course for collision. Security Compass is uniquely positioned to help organizations address the inherent conflicts. With FTV's investment, we're poised to accelerate our growth while maintaining the culture of excellence we've worked so hard to build."
The worldwide growth in security and privacy regulations, such as GLBA, FedRAMP, GDPR, CCPA and many others, requires that security is built into the whole product development lifecycle. "Security Compass' SD Elements solution," says FTV Capital partner Gitig, "is uniquely focused on the software stack, enabling DevOps at scale by helping enterprises develop secure, compliant code from the start."
He continued, "SD Elements provides both engineering and non-engineering teams with a holistic solution for managing software security requirements in an efficient and reliable manner, alleviating meaningful friction in the software development life cycle, accelerating release cycles and improving business results. We are excited to work with the Security Compass management team in its next phase of global growth as a trusted information security partner."
Security Compass claims more than 200 enterprise customers in banks, federal government and critical industries use its solutions to manage the risk of tens of thousands of applications.

After six summers of researching, testing, and recommending window air conditioners, we've learned that quiet and affordable ACs make most people the happiest—and we think the LG LW8016ER will fit the bill in most rooms. This 8,000 Btu unit cools as efficiently and effectively as any model with an equal Btu rating, and runs at a lower volume and deeper pitch than others at this price. Little extra features like a fresh-air vent, two-axis fan blades, and a removable drain plug help set it apart, too. The LG LW8016ER is a top choice for an office or den, and some people will find it quiet enough for a bedroom, too. If our main pic
