Founded in 2020, Noname is the creator of the most powerful, complete and easy-to-use API security platform. The company works with 20% of Fortune 500 companies covering the entire API security scope across three pillars — posture management, runtime security, and a secure API software development lifecycle. Noname has raised $220M in total financing since coming out of stealth mode, making it one of the fastest growing cybersecurity companies ever – and the first API security company to achieve unicorn status. Noname Security is a privately held company, headquartered in Palo Alto, California, with an office in Tel Aviv and Amsterdam.
How we are different
The purpose of Noname Security is to support the needs of organizations seeking to protect API deployments, detecting vulnerabilities and misconfigurations before they are exploited. Since Noname’s launch, its growth has been extraordinary. Within six months of emerging from stealth, Noname closed a $60M Series B funding round. Six months later, Noname Security officially reached unicorn status as it closed its Series C funding round - the first API security company to do so - increasing revenue 400% quarter over quarter while growing its workforce over eight times to more than 250 employees worldwide.
Noname’s organizational growth and funding is a tribute to the accomplishments in building a solution that addresses one of the most pressing security needs of the modern enterprise. With the rapid adoption of cloud computing combined with the requirement to move data at a swift pace between cloud environments, Noname’s founders recognized how APIs play a critical role within digital transformation, how insecure they are and thus require the ability to not only see every API but secure it
Noname Security focused its solution on tackling API security in a proactive vs. reactive sense. Gartner predicted that API attacks would become the most-frequent attack vector this year, which unfortunately became a reality in 2021 causing data breaches for enterprise web applications. Noname Security helps developers build in security measures from the start of software production with real time automatic firewalls and policy implementation that protects against suspicious behavior.
