“As investors in several leading cloud technology providers, we were impressed by Aqua and its track record as a security leader in this hyper-growth space,” said Jeff Horing, co-founder and managing director at Insight Partners.
“At Aqua, we recognized from the start that this space requires a different approach to security and were the first to provide a full lifecycle solution, which all other vendors have been trying to imitate,” Davidoff said.
