Island cybersecurity lands $175 million in Series D funding

Island Cybersecurity Funding

Island, an up-and-coming cybersecurity startup valued at $3 billion, has recently raised $175 million in its latest Series D financing round. This is considerably an impressive leap, as the firm’s worth boosted from $1.5 billion just six months earlier after securing a $100 million Series C round, bringing its total amount of investments to a whopping $487 million.

Committed to enhancing its core product – its advanced security browser – the latest influx of funding has provided more potential for Island to boost its security features further, thus reinforcing its solid reputation within the industry for its strong stance on internet safety and data privacy. The new capital funding will also be allocated for expanding its global reach and accelerating product development, in addition to drawing in top skills in cybersecurity.

Injector of fresh capital, Coatue, is a new face around Island’s usual investors that consist of Sequoia Capital, Insight Partners, Stripes, Georgian, and Prysm Capital, whom also participated in the funding round.

Founded by the renowned figure in the cybersecurity sector, Mike Fey, Island was built with security and efficiency in mind. Alongside Fey is Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Dan Amiga.

Island’s cybersecurity success: $175 million funding boost

Together with approximately 250 employees under their wing, who are also being overseen by approximately 150 professionals based in Tel Aviv, Island thrives in the industry, securing an estimate of tens of millions in annual profits.

Notably, the Island enterprise browser is engineered sophisticatedly to elevate corporate security with its dozens of controls, barriers, and advanced productivity features that help deter unauthorized access, protect sensitive data, and ensure consistent compliance with corporate policies. These capabilities flawlessly accommodate a variety of needs, especially the demanding stakes of corporate-work environments. And in these functions, the security teams serve as gatekeepers working tirelessly to fend off potential threats and control them effectively.
