The round was also joined by Accel, Caleb Sima, Guillermo Rauch, Lightspeed, Mango Capital, Point72, Rain Capital, SignalFire and Talha Tariq, among other investors.
Based in San Francisco, California, ProjectDiscovery is focused on identifying exploitable vulnerabilities in web apps, APIs, cloud environments, and third-party software.
ProjectDiscovery chief operating officer Andy Cao said the proceeds will be used to build the company’s team, launch an offering for enterprises and support open-source users.
Along with the funding, the company announced the launch of its fully-managed software as a service platform, called ProjectDiscovery Cloud Platform.
The new platform enables businesses to manage assets, find and address vulnerabilities at scale, and correct cloud security configuration errors, the company said.
