Tel Aviv-based virtual container security startup Aqua Security Software Ltd. completed a $62 million funding round, the company announced Wednesday. The round was led by New York-based venture capital and private equity firm Insight Venture Partners (listed as Insight Venture Management, LLC). Aqua Security’s existing investors Lightspeed Venture Partners, Microsoft’s venture fund M12, TLV Partners, and Israeli investor Shlomo Kramer, co-founder of Nasdaq-listed Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., also participated in the round.

 

Established in 2015 by Amir Jerbi and David (Dror) Davidoff, Aqua Security combines machine learning algorithms and threat research to offer an advanced security service for container-based and serverless applications. The new round of funding brings Aqua’s total funds raised to more than $100 million, according to the company’s statement. Aqua employs some 150 people in Tel Aviv and New York, and intends to hire 50 more employees to its Tel Aviv office by the end of the year, the company said. The company’s website touts Microsoft and HP Inc. as customers.
