SAN FRANCISCO - September 12, 2016 - Sqreen (www.sqreen.io) is an automated and continuous security solution for developers. Using a unique cybersecurity technology inside web applications, Sqreen blocks attacks in real-time.
Today, Sqreen is presenting its technology at the prestigious Startup Battlefield at TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2016. The Startup Battlefield brings the world's top startups together on one stage to compete for the coveted Disrupt Cup. The judges include TechCrunch editors as well as top VCs and entrepreneurs. Past participants include companies like Dropbox, Trello, Fitbit, Mint, Yammer, Zenefits, and more.
After closing a $2.3M seed round earlier this year, and seeing strong interest from the Ruby developer community, Sqreen is officially launching it’s Ruby support out of beta and is adding Python and Node.js support. Since the Beta launch, Sqreen has protected 400 developers and companies worldwide and blocked already more than 1 million attacks.
With 74% of SMEs/Startups attacked (+60% YoY), security threats have never been so high for software developers. The mismatch of current security solutions with modern continuous development practices is putting web applications at risk. By offering a security product embedded in developers’ applications, Sqreen is revolutionizing the way developers protect their applications. With a 30-second install, and no maintenance, Sqreen will automatically block hackers from stealing sensitive information or taking over user accounts.
Sqreen was founded in 2015 by two security experts who spent 10 years hacking and assessing product security at Apple. It is backed by leading venture capital firms Alven Capital, Point Nine Capital and Kima Ventures, 50 Partners and several well known angels, including Marc Verstaen, EVP Product Development at Docker, Thibaud Elziere, former CEO at Fotolia, Francis Nappez, co-founder of Blablacar, Philippe Plichon, head of southern Europe at Dropbox, and Justin Ziegler, co-founder of PriceMinister.
TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2016 is TechCrunch’s tenth annual conference in San Francisco. The format combines top thought-leader discussions with new product and company launches. Morning executive discussions debate technology-driven disruptions in many industries, while the afternoons are reserved for the Startup Battlefield, where 20+ new companies will launch for the first time on stage, selected to present from numerous applications received from around the world.
