August 21, 2018 / Sean Michael Kerner
Software engineering analytics platform provider Semmle announced its global launch on Aug. 21, alongside new funding to help the company grow its technology. Semmle announced it has raised $21 million in a Series B round of funding, led by Accel Partners with participation from Work-Bench. Total funding to date for Semmle stands at $31 million. The company has two core products, LGTM and QL, which are already widely used by developers to help validate code and identity potential vulnerabilities. "Software systems today are huge and complex and because of that, every business has a huge blind spot for vulnerabilities that exist in their code today," Oege de Moor, CEO of Semmle, told eWEEK. "Semmle secures the software that runs the world by offering a software engineering analytics platform which helps CIOs and developers alike to understand the code, processes and people that have created these huge and complex systems."
