Menlo Security Raises $25 million for Isolation Platform

Menlo Security emerged from stealth to unveil its Isolation Platform, a new technology that eliminates the threat of malware from key attack vectors, including Web and email.

The solution does not use endpoint software. Instead, the Menlo Security Isolation Platform isolates and executes all Web content in the cloud and away from the endpoint. It uses patent-pending, clientless rendering technology, Adaptive Clientless Rendering (ACR), to deliver a non-executable, malware-free copy of the user’s session to their native browser, creating a transparent user experience.

The Menlo Security Isolation Platform is available now as a public cloud-based service or as a virtual appliance for on-premise deployment. The Platform is compatible with any hardware (desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone), any OS (Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android) and any browser (IE, Chrome, Safari, FireFox).

Menlo Security also announced $25 million in Series B funding, led by new investor Sutter Hill Ventures and joined by existing investors General Catalyst, Osage University Partners and Engineering Capital.

“Organizations and individuals should be able to interact online without the fear of being compromised,” said Amir Ben-Efraim, co-founder and CEO of Menlo Security. “By focusing on ease of deployment and a seamless user experience, the team at Menlo Security has reinvented isolation as a highly usable and scalable front line of defense against malware.”

Prior to emerging from stealth, Menlo Security in November 2014 announced $10.5 million in Series A funding to reinvent security. The new round of financing brings the total company funding to $35.5 million. Additionally, Stefan Dyckerhoff, managing director at Sutter Hill Ventures, is joining the Menlo Security’s board of directors.
