Exclusive: This startup has raised millions to defend software from exploitation

Tysons cybersecurity firm RunSafe Security Inc. has closed an initial $6.3 million funding round as it seeks to build out its customer base and expand its sales efforts, CEO Joe Saunders said in an interview. That first close leaves room for an additional strategic investor to join the round, Saunders said. The company has already gotten backing from a number of notable firms, including San Francisco-based Alsop Louie Partners, local venture capitalist Justin Label’s Inner Loop Capital, the Center for Innovative Technology’s GAP Funds and Renegade Ventures.
