Traceable was founded in 2018 by serial entrepreneurs Jyoti Bansal and Sanjay Nagaraj to become the industry leader in API security. Prior to Traceable, Jyoti was founder and CEO of AppDynamics which was sold to Cisco for $3.7 billion in 2017. Bansal and Nagaraj saw the massive adoption of cloud-native architectures firsthand during their time at AppDynamics.
Since the API is now the lynchpin of these modern application architectures, they founded Traceable to protect every API and to help ensure the security of the services and data that power modern applications. Today, Traceable has grown to be the industry’s leading API security platform that identifies and tests APIs, evaluates API risk posture, stops API attacks, and provides deep analytics for threat hunting and forensic research.
We aim to be the industry’s chosen solution and trusted advisor to security and risk management leaders, data security leaders, as well as software engineers looking to secure their APIs, and build better software faster. Based in San Francisco CA, Traceable is funded by Unusual Ventures, IVP, & Tiger Global Management.
