Endor Labs, a company focused on helping enterprises use open source software (OSS) without slowing down development teams and incurring massive maintenance costs, today announced a partnership with Intuititive.Cloud (and its venture capital arm) as an investor and a strategic partner. Intuitive is a recognized leader in cloud solutions and service delivery, supporting enterprises and ISVs on a global scale. Intuitive and Endor Labs will combine their expertise to help security and development teams leverage open source software securely, efficiently, and at a reduced cost.
This announcement comes at the heels of Endor Labs’ recent $25M seed funding, which was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, Dell Technology Capital, and Sierra Ventures, and several industry luminaries who have recognized the massive problem Endor Labs is solving. These include CEOs and executives from Palo Alto Networks, Zoom, Snowflake, Zscaler, Netskope, Rubrik, Databricks, Microsoft, and more. Endor Labs has also received support from the Silicon Valley CISO Investment group (SVCI), through which 30+ CISOs personally invested in the company.
“Eighty percent of the code in modern applications is the code your developers didn’t write but depend on open source packages. When our founding team was leading the Prisma Cloud engineering group at Palo Alto Networks, we realized the true magnitude of this issue,” said co-founder and CEO Varun Badhwar. “Having previously created the Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) category, this team knows how to take on next-generation threats. Our mission now is to enable OSS to live up to its true potential without introducing unnecessary risk. With their years of experience and expertise, the Intuitive team is an invaluable partner to share this mission with.”
"Enterprises & ISVs rely heavily on OSS for agile software development life-cycle; while the security teams are hard pressed build security controls and guardrails without impacting developer experience (DX) and productivity for faster time-to-market and revenue realization," said Jay Modh, Founder & CEO of Intuitive. "Endor Labs is a disruptive innovator of “Dependency Lifecycle Management”, solving OSS security problems in the most “Intuitive” way, with the help of some of the brightest minds in academia and the professional world."
Intuitive is one of the fastest-growing and recognized Cloud & SDx solution and services companies supporting private and public sector enterprises on a global scale, delivering measurable value and business outcomes. Intuitive is led by Founder & CEO, Jay Modh, who is a technology leader and strategic investor focused on Cloud, CyberSecurity, Data and AI/ML innovations. Intuitive is headquartered in New Jersey, with offices in California, Oregon, Texas, Canada, Spain, U.K., Ireland, UAE, and India.
