The Israeli startup recently released TalonWork for Mac and said that it is already up and running in dozens of companies, including some of the largest employers in the U.S.
Israeli startup Talon Cyber Security, which launched its browser-based cybersecurity platform last year, announced on Monday that it has added SAFE investments of $17 million to take its total funding to $43 million, prior to an upcoming A-Round of funding. The company, which will have its valuation set in its next round, raised $26 million in its Seed round last year.
Sorenson Ventures and Evolution Equity Partners are joining earlier Talon’s investors, venture capital firms Lightspeed and Team8, and cybersecurity leaders such as George Kurtz, CEO of CrowdStrike, Yevgeny Dibrov and Nadir Izrael, Co-founders of Armis, Michael Shaulov, Co-founder and CEO of Fireblocks, Avi Shua, Co-founder and CEO of Orca Security and Assaf Rappaport, Co-founder and CEO of Wiz.
The additional funding is focused on bringing onboard top cybersecurity investors that will support Talon’s accelerated commercialization process, and further expanding the development efforts. Talon currently employs 45 people in its R&D center in Israel, as well as in its recently opened offices in the U.S.
The company recently released TalonWork for Mac, expanding the coverage of Talon's endpoint agnostic solution, and said that it is already up and running in dozens of companies, including some of the largest employers in the U.S. Talon initially launched its secure browser for enterprises, TalonWork, in October, enabling enterprise companies to effectively manage a hybrid workforce without having to compromise security, employee experience or privacy.
Talon was founded in 2021 by two proven entrepreneurs in the cybersecurity industry, CEO Ofer Ben-Noon and CTO Ohad Bobrov, both alumni of Unit 8200, Israel’s elite military technology and intelligence unit. Ben-Noon founded Argus, the global leader in automotive cybersecurity, which was sold to Continental in 2017 (estimated $430 million), while Bobrov founded Lacoon Mobile Security, a provider of security solutions for mobile phones, which was sold to Check Point in 2015 (estimated $100 million).
