Two application-security vendors raised millions in capital Tuesday, and security analysts say the investments show the application security market is here to stay.

This round, Kavado's largest to date, was led by Pequot Ventures. Previous investors, including Banc of America Equity Partners, Neurone Ventures, and 3i Group, also participated in this round.
