Menlo Security, a leader in cloud security, has raised $100 million in Series E funding, valuing the company at $800 million. The round was led by Vista Equity Partners (“Vista”), a leading global investment firm focused on enterprise software, data and technology-enabled businesses, with additional participation from Neuberger Berman funds, General Catalyst, JP Morgan, and other existing investors. This new capital will further fuel market expansion and empower the company to scale go-to-market capabilities, as well as provide increased investment in engineering to accelerate product delivery and category expansion.
As businesses of all sizes embrace remote working and migrate to software as a service (SaaS), security is being completely re-architected to combat modern day threats such as phishing and ransomware. Traditional “detect and respond” approaches fail to provide the safety that users and businesses need. Menlo Security’s mission is to make internet use safe, seamless, and effective. The Menlo Security Cloud SWG is an extensible security platform – built on a unique isolation core – that delivers on the promise of cloud security by:
- Providing the most effective zero trust approach to preventing malicious attacks;
- Offering a seamless experience for end users that allows for safe, uninterrupted work while accessing the internet, SaaS or private applications; and
- Removing the significant operational burden for security operations teams.
Exciting things are happening at Menlo! We’re looking to grow in the next phase of our journey, and we need talented people to help us get there.
