Evolution Equity Partners general partner Yuval Ben-Itzhak said: “Aqua Security has built an innovative cloud security solution that solves the growing challenge of stopping cloud native attacks.  

“Given the increasing adoption of cloud native applications across enterprises, Aqua’s growth trajectory is a rocket ship. Led by a strong management team, and with a focus on customer success and innovation, Aqua stands out among a crowded vendor landscape.”  

Aqua Security co-founder and CEO Dror Davidoff said: “Investors continue to appreciate Aqua’s enormous potential, and the surging demand for our solution.  

“Eight years ago, we envisioned a world where all new applications would be built native to the cloud. Today we are here in a market we pioneered with a purpose-built solution to protect customers’ digital transformations.”  

In the initial Series E round in March 2021, the company raised $135m. That round was led by ION Crossover Partners.  

It included contributions from M12 – Microsoft’s venture fund, and also Lightspeed Venture Partners, Insight Partners, TLV Partners, Greenspring Associates, and Acrew Capital.
