Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Noname utilizes an AI and machine learning platform to provide companies with the ability to see and secure managed and unmanaged APIs exposed by the organization, consumed by the organization, or used internally. This helps remove the blindspots and flaws which often go unnoticed for years and pose enormous security threats.

Since emerging from stealth in 2020, Noname has raised healthy doses of investments which are being put to use with the acceleration of R&D and rapid expansion of sales and marketing teams. API security is a hot topic for investors right now with Noname competitors 42Crunch and Salt Security also raising significant funds. Noname, however, claims to be the first API unicorn after reaching a $1 billion valuation in 2021.

Noname believes it came to the market at just the right time with fully realized technology to meet the growing demand for cybersecurity due to the surging volume of APIs and complexity of modern applications. It continues to expand its platform and add depth to its products in 2023.
