Second Front Systems Accelerates UK Defence Market Opportunity with Investment from GALLOS Technologies
Second Front Systems (2F), the public-benefit software company focused on accelerating the delivery of mission-critical software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions to government, announces the strategic $2 million investment from UK-based GALLOS Technologies Limited as a secondary close to its Series A funding round.
This funding will support 2F’s entry into the UK market and position its fully managed and compliant DevSecOps platform Game Warden as a software bridge between the two allied nations.
“Our British and American armed forces operate closely from humanitarian assistance to crisis response. Yet, the lack of a common accreditation backbone creates an unacceptable gap between our information systems and operating effectiveness,” said Peter Dixon, CEO at Second Front, who as a US Marine served alongside 7th Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery in Afghanistan.
GALLOS’ mission is to invest in and co-build companies in critical security technology areas, supporting them to become the next market leaders. By applying its unique insights, network, and capabilities with patient capital, GALLOS provides companies like 2F with an edge in accessing new markets and accelerating their growth.
“Second Front brings the promise of making both the UK defence, and larger still US defence market, addressable to UK SaaS companies,” said Dean Jones, co-founder of GALLOS and former UK Special Forces and Royal Marines soldier. “We couldn’t be prouder to partner with this fast-growing software company.”
The investment builds on 2F’s already oversubscribed Series A funding round, which will be used to expand its Game Warden platform’s availability to additional environments and across multiple cloud providers. Game Warden is currently delivered on AWS GovCloud with production environments available in Impact Levels 2, 4, and 5.
This move will further position 2F as the market leader in rapidly onboarding cutting-edge SaaS into an increasingly addressable, and now international, public sector market.
