Workflow security developer Sym bags $3m Series A shortly after closing its seed round

Sym, which helps companies build security workflows, has netted $9m in its Series A funding round, which was led by Amplify Partners.

The investment also received support from angel investors including former Google CISO Gerhard Eschelbeck, Atlassian CTO Sri Viswanath and GitHub CTO Jason Warner.

With the close of the round, the RegTech startup plans to increase the size of its engineering team and reinforce its sales and marketing efforts.

Sym claims this investment follows closely behind its $3m seed round, which was led by Uncork Capital partner Andy McLoughlin and Mango Capital founder Robin Vasan, but it is not clear when this round closed.

The company claims to address a critical security gap by supplying engineering teams with a security workflow platform that incorporates security, privacy and governance controls directly into their ecosystems.

Its technology stack includes dozens of pre-built templates that both translate common security policies into code and pre-integrate into common developer technology stacks including identity systems like Okta and messaging platforms like Slack. Through this, a company can ensure security effectiveness and accountability of their information in all areas.

Sym CEO Yasyf Mohamedali said, “We’re excited to partner with Sunil and Amplify on this mission.

“Engineering teams today are stuck choosing between security and speed. Our mission at Sym is to empower them to deliver perfect security and compliance workflows while maintaining their current rapid pace of development. We’re setting out to fundamentally change how companies implement and demonstrate their security posture.”
