Aqua’s seed investors TLV Partners and Mr. Kramer also participated in this round of funding, bringing Aqua’s total investment to date to US$13.5 million.
Aqua was founded in late 2015, and launched its platform for general availability in May 2016. In a short period, the company achieved significant growth and customer adoption. Fortune 500 customers in the financial services, technology, retail and online services sectors are already using the Aqua platform to secure production environments and embed security into their container development and delivery cycle. The company plans to double its staff by mid-2017.
Aqua also announced today that Shlomo Kramer, who invested in Aqua’s seed round, will join the company’s board of directors. Mr. Kramer is a prolific cybersecurity entrepreneur and investor, who co-founded Check Point Software (CHKP), Imperva (IMPV), and Cato Networks, and invested in Trusteer (acquired by IBM), and Palo Alto Networks (PANW), among others.
“Aqua’s amazing progress in bringing its platform to market and growing its customer base are indicative of how rapidly containers are being adopted by enterprises, and of the need for a new security approach for this new stack,” said Mr. Kramer.
