Aqua Security reveals that it has secured $60 million in funding, which is an extension of the company’s Series E round, placing its valuation above $1 billion.
According to the company, the new investment was led by Evolution Equity Partners, with participation from existing investors Insight Partners, Lightspeed Venture Partners and StepStone Group.
Aqua says that it has now raised $325 million since its founding in 2015.

The company highlights that it serves six of the top ten banks in North America and six of the top seven banks in Canada, making it the leading cloud native security provider for the financial services industry.
“Investors continue to appreciate Aqua’s enormous potential and the surging demand for our solution,” said Dror Davidoff, Co-Founder and CEO of Aqua Security.
