Talon Cyber Security, an Israel-based cybersecurity solutions provider, announced on Monday it raised $26 million through its Seed funding round, which included participation from Lightspeed Venture Partners, Team8, and Zohar Zisapel. Founded earlier this year by Ofer Ben-Noon and Ohad Bobrov, Talon Cyber Security describes itself as a provider of cybersecurity solutions for the distributed workforce.
“Providing a next-generation technology designed to protect against a new category of threats posed by distributed work and accelerated cloud usage, Talon enables workforce productivity and flexibility alongside holistic visibility and rock-solid cybersecurity.”
While sharing more details about the company’s development, Ben-Noon, who is also Talon Cyber Security CEO, stated:
“The distributed workforce presents a host of new cybersecurity challenges and exposes both large and small organizations to new types of threats that can’t be solved using existing solutions. This unique challenge and opportunity led Ohad and me to embark on this exciting journey. Talon is entering the market to provide organizations with maximum flexibility, productivity and visibility while protecting them against cyber attacks that are becoming more and more sophisticated.”
Talon then added the investment round’s funds will be used to continue the development of its cybersecurity technology that protects from the threats emerging in today’s era of distributed work.
