Vigilant Ops Raises $2 Million for SBOM Management Platform

Cybersecurity startup Vigilant Ops has received a $2 million seed investment from DataTribe to help organizations manage software bills of materials.
Founded in 2019, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Vigilant Ops provides an automated platform for the generation, maintenance, and sharing of certified SBOMs. Tailored for regulated organizations that buy and build software, the platform provides vulnerability monitoring, delivering flaw alerts and security patch notifications.
The new funding, Vigilant Ops says, will help it expand the capabilities of its InSight platform to cover multiple critical infrastructure sectors, beyond the healthcare industry, which has been the company's primary focus to date.
According to the company, the latest InSight platform release already includes support for automatically importing various SBOM formats.
Vigilant Ops says it will continue creating a complete inventory of software components that are recognized by legislation and regulations covering the communications, energy, financial services, information technology, manufacturing, and telecom industries.
Following the Biden administration's 2021 push for mandatory SBOMs, the US government has issued guidance on SBOM implementation and consumption, and private organizations have introduced resources to help organizations get on the SBOM train.
