Wallarm is looking to gain share in the growing market for application security, with continued advancements to the company's Framework for Automatic Security Testing, or FAST, platform. On Oct. 22, Wallarm announced that it raised $8 million in a Series A round of funding, led by Toba Capital and including the participation of Y Combinator, Partech and Gagarin Capital. Alongside the funding, the company is rolling out the latest update of its FAST platform that provides improved vulnerability detection. "We want to invest more in developing the FAST product but more importantly in building a community for developers interested in practical security and security gurus who want to spread the wisdom," Ivan Novikov, co-founder and CEO of Wallarm, told eWEEK.
