We are proud to announce that Inspectiv has closed our Series A funding, raising our total funding to more than $16M! The round was led by StepStone Group with participation from Fika Ventures, Freestyle and Mucker Capital. We are grateful to be backed by some of the best investors in the world as we continue our mission to build the leading Vulnerability Detection Platform.
The funding will drive our expanded use of artificial intelligence, building on our global network of thousands of security researchers, to provide businesses a unique depth of vulnerability detection. As Inspectiv researchers identify new vulnerabilities, the platform incorporates and automates that detection for future monitoring, allowing companies to benefit from the network effect of the large arsenal of highly valuable threats, as well as freeing up researchers to focus on finding more complex and targeted threats.
In addition to announcing our funding we are excited to expand our leadership team to support the next phase of growth.

Disraeli will work closely with Founder and Executive Chairman Joseph Melika, who continues to spearhead product strategy, drawing on his domain expertise of 20+ years in the field including roles at Viacom and Verizon.
