The round was led by Runtime Ventures and saw contributions from Inner Loop Capital, SaaS Ventures, DeVC, and other investors. Over 3,000 open-source projects, including those from entities like Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Microsoft, and Google, use StepSecurity to secure their CI/CD pipelines.
