Aqua Security provides solutions designed to help organizations secure their cloud, container-based and serverless applications and infrastructure. The company’s products provide visibility and security automation capabilities across an application’s lifecycle.

Its first SaaS offering, a cloud security posture management solution, was launched following the company’s acquisition of CloudSploit in November 2019. Its second SaaS product is named Aqua Dynamic Threat Analysis and it enables organizations to detect and mitigate threats in container images using a secure container sandbox.

Aqua says it has more than doubled revenue and employee headcount over the past year, and the company claims it now has over 400 customers across a wide range of sectors.

“Aqua has made impressive strides building its customer base and establishing itself as a market leader in securing cloud native applications,” said Hunter Somerville, general partner at Greenspring Associates. “Even under today’s challenging business conditions, the company has demonstrated strong revenue growth, and an ability to introduce new, exciting products that differentiate their offering. With enterprises continuing to migrate aggressively to the cloud, we see Aqua as well-positioned to benefit from and enable that adoption.”

Aqua previously raised $25 million in a Series B funding round in 2017 and $62 million in a Series C round in 2019.
