Talon Cyber Security Finalizes $100M Series A to Enhance Security for the Future of Work

Talon Cyber Security, the “secure” enterprise browser provider, recently announced $100 million in Series A funding, led by Evolution Equity Partners, “with participation from Ballistic Ventures, CrowdStrike’s Falcon Fund, Merlin Ventures, SYN Ventures and previous investors CrowdStrike co-founder and CEO George Kurtz, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Sorenson Ventures and Team8.”

The funds will be used “to accelerate go-to-market efforts to meet the increasing global demand for Talon’s secure enterprise browser, TalonWork, and deliver new product enhancements to continuously improve security for modern workforces.”

As organizations have embraced distributed work for employees and contractors, “the reliance on SaaS applications has risen, and security needs have evolved drastically.”

The traditional ways of enabling secure access to enterprise applications “are complex, expensive, and put organizations at risk.”

The TalonWork browser “simplifies security by allowing secure access to corporate applications and data on any device, managed or unmanaged, and on any operating system.”

With Talon, security teams “benefit from deep visibility into browser and application activity, as well as native security features like authentication, data loss prevention and Zero Trust controls.”

Based on Chromium, TalonWork delivers “the consistent and familiar user experiences expected by today’s workers, fostering productivity across the enterprise.”

Ofer Ben-Noon, co-founder and CEO, Talon Cyber Security, said:

“We have built the team and technology to redefine and power security for the future of work – a future where security is delivered naturally through the enterprise’s most heavily-used application: the browser. The world and the applications the largest organizations rely on are moving to the web, creating an extensive need for a vehicle that can provide secure access without changing the way work is conducted. This new funding will allow us to continue to show why that vehicle is Talon’s secure enterprise browser.”

The company’s recent momentum “includes numerous customer deployments at large organizations, the release of the industry’s first secure enterprise browser for mobile devices, and established partnerships with the two leaders in endpoint security: CrowdStrike and Microsoft.”

The investment round “includes the conversion of $17 million in SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity) investments announced earlier this year into A round shares, bringing Talon’s total amount raised to over $126 million.”

As part of the announcement, Richard Seewald, Founder and Managing Partner of Evolution Equity Partners, is “joining Talon’s board of directors.”
