Developer security company Snyk today announced a $196.5 million Series G investment. The round was led by Qatar Investment Authority with participation from new investors Evolution Equity Partners, G Squared, and Irving Investors as well as existing investors boldstart ventures, Sands Capital, and Tiger Global.
According to the company, this comes after a year of rapid customer adoption for Snyk, with over 2,300 users who have fixed more than 5.2 million vulnerabilities over the last year.

In 2023, we look forward to leveraging this latest investment to continue enhancing our platform and help more global enterprises reap the benefits of DevSecOps.”
