The Phoenix, Arizona company said the new cash infusion adds to a $75 million Series B round secured earlier this year to build and market an attack surface management platform that automates the discovery and mitigation of security weaknesses.

In addition to WestCap, NextEquity Partners and Rockpool Capital joined the latest funding.

Bishop Fox, an 18-year-old firm known for its penetration testing and offensive security expertise, has raised more than $154 million in lifetime funding, including a $25 million Series A investment from Forgepoint Capital.
