Growing Startup Security

Cross-Industry White Paper

Security Neglect Curbs Startup Growth

77% of the time, enterprisal value is curbed by the strength of an AppSec program (Source: ISC²). Your proven track record attracted some external funding based capital. While each round contributed to success and growth, there’s still room. The next big step from bootstrapping and seed funds, is Series A then B.

At this level, investors valuing your company will carefully scan for any liabilities hidden amid security software stacks - exposed via a complex and fragmented cloud. Opportunistic actors strongly exploit such easy targets who cannot see clearly.

Your task isn’t impossible eliminations of attack surfaces - we all depend on powerful but imperfect networks for our operations. But a battle ready, transparent program will lock in maximal evaluations. Due diligence can heavily bias investors in your favor.

Know Your Risks
ISC² - the world’s largest nonprofit association of certified cybersecurity professionals - surveyed how high-potential companies were damaged as a result of AppSec neglect - half of respondents said:
If audits revealed weak security practices the cybersecurity program was overall devalued.
They witnessed an M&A deal crumble due to an unreported breach during the audit process.
Public shares were negatively hit after a post-acquisition data breach.

Outdated AppSec Risks


That cascade across distributed-IT environments.


Reputation-damage from security neglects/breaches.

Devalued deals

Because scaling up would involve too-high a risk.


Due to unclear controls & murky overviewing.
