Aqua Security, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based container security platform provider, raised $25m in Series B funding.
The round, which brings total investment to $38.5m, was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners with participation from existing investors Microsoft Ventures, TLV Ventures and Shlomo Kramer.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.
Led by Dror Davidoff, CEO and co-founder, Aqua provides a container security platform that delivers an advanced security solution for containerized environments, supporting both Linux and Windows containers, multiple orchestration environments, both on-premises deployments as well as on AWS, Azure, GCP, and other public clouds.
Integrating early into container development, Aqua then uses a combination of intelligent defaults, machine learning, and threat research to provide full life cycle security for container-based applications.
Since the launch in May 2016, the company has acquired dozens of Global 1000 customers, including two of the 10 largest financial services companies and three of the world’s top 10 software companies.
Aqua has offices in San Francisco, CA, Burlington, MA, and London, UK.
