Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Developers rely on open source code and apps in their day to day work, but when the provenance of the code is unknown this creates potential weaknesses that cybercriminals can exploit. Chainguard exists to build security into the coding supply chain by making it possible for companies to enforce security policies based on auditable signatures baked into the code, and by providing a security-first set of container images with no known vulnerabilities for cloud app developers.

In the wake of huge cyber attacks like the Log4j vulnerability and Solarwinds breach, software supply chain security has been an area of major focus for startups hoping to solve problems in this sector. However, most of these focus on scanning and detection of threats. Chainguard's approach comes from the other end of the process, focusing on building security into the software itself.

Built by former Google engineers, Chainguard is aware of the existing workload (and oversized toolkit) of software developers and so is designed to be easily installed and to integrate with existing automation systems like Terraform.

Chainguard completed a Series A funding round led by Sequoia Capital in mid-2022. It is using this funding to develop its product and hire additional talent. It is also investing in open-source projects aligned with its mission and establishing a free education program to teach developers about supply chain security.
