Otta's take on Snyk

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Open source software is a highly lucrative market and is growing fast. However, open source components can come with vulnerabilities, and so their widespread use in apps becomes a liability to a company’s cybersecurity. Snyk has built a way to detect when those apps or components are compromised.

The company works with developers, who are now commonly the owners of application security. It integrates into existing developer workflows, compatible with the likes of GitHub, Bitbucket and GitLab, as well as CI/CD. Snyk also varies its approach with enterprises depending on their security needs, working on-premises, via the cloud or a hybrid. This puts the company in a strong position to target all enterprises as customers. In this, Snyk has already been successful - it has hundreds of customers, including Google and Salesforce.

Valued at $8.5bn back in 2021, Snyk has lately been focussed on growth and platform improvement. It is not alone in the space, with competitors including SonarQube and Veracode, but has nonetheless remained one of the largest market players; raising new funds that come alongside an integration with ServiceNow, to further bolster the value of its offerings.

Total funding - $1.6bn
