Mobile security startup Seworks raises $8.2 million from SoftBank, Qualcomm, Samsung, others

Seworks, a mobile security startup that serves to protect apps from hacks, has raised $8.2 million in a Series A round from SoftBank Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, Samsung Ventures, Smilegate Investment, and Wonik Investment Partners.

Founded out of San Francisco in 2013 by a “globally famous” team of white-hat hackers, Seworks’ main customer-facing brand is actually AppSolid, a product that developers use to scan and diagnose any vulnerabilities within their apps and to monitor the security status in real time. It’s designed to protect apps from decompiling, tampering, being duplicated, and more, and it promises binary protection once the app has been finished, saving the developer from having to carry out separate coding to bolster the security.

Launched globally back in March, Seworks now claims to have clients across the U.S., Europe, and Asia in a number of industries, such as commerce and games, but it didn’t divulge any names.
