About Snyk

We’re on a mission to make the world a safer place with more secure software.

We’re living in a world of digital transformation that is turning ever more industries into a software-development industry.  Cyber security is taking centre stage for many companies, and demand for Snyk’s product is sky-rocketing!  Snyk was just named #15 on CNBC’s 2021 Disruptor 50 Companies.  

Snyk has been adopted by over 2.2M developers (including multiple leading enterprise customers) who use Snyk to find and fix vulnerabilities in their open source libraries and container images, empowering them to develop secure software, faster.

In March of 2021, we raised $300M in Series E funding, bringing our company valuation to  $4.7 billion, only 6 months after securing an additional $200M in Series D funding in September 2020; successfully closing three strategic acquisitions with DeepCode, Manifold and FossID; recorded a 200% year-on-year increase in revenue; and launched two new products.  On top of that, we have doubled the size of our global team, and we’re not stopping there!  

We believe open source software is a force for good, and we’re building Snyk to make it easier for developers who aren’t security experts to stay secure.  Join us!
