Forgepoint Capital is thrilled to announce our Series B investment in Whistic!

We’re excited to continue our work with Nick and team as they establish Whistic as the industry leader for vendor assessments by building trust and transparency across their global network of vendors.

Whistic is a fast growing, product-led growth company that has pioneered an innovative dual-sided platform for vendor security assessments.  The Whistic Vendor Security NetworkTM supports both buyers and sellers by automating many of the reactive processes that create friction during security reviews. The result: a new and efficient standard involving proactively updated vendor profiles based on the latest industry requirements, doing away with the time-consuming evaluation procedures that stall progress and productivity.

Whistic has also taken a central role in leading change across the industry with the Security First Initiative, which supports the Whistic Profile as the industry standard way to share security information. Founding members like Airbnb, Asana, Atlassian, Notion, Okta, Snap, TripActions, and Zendesk laid the groundwork for an array of leading brands to similarly adopt Whistic as the way to expedite vendor security assessments.

Over the years we have been very impressed with the entire team at Whistic and look forward to continuing to roll up our sleeves to help the company execute on their broad vision to automate the way organizations assess, publish, and share vendor security information.

Forgepoint Capital backs entrepreneurs building category-creating companies like Whistic, that help defend the digital world.  Whistic joins our portfolio of over three dozen category-leading companies across the cybersecurity industry.

We’re pleased to participate in Whistic’s Series B financing alongside lead investor JMI Equity and join a strong syndicate that includes Emergence Capital, Album VC, and FJ Labs.
