Vorlon, a trailblazer in third-party API security, has successfully secured $15.7m in Series A funding.

The round was led by Accel, a notable investor in the company’s earlier seed funding phase, with additional backing from Shield Capital and several prominent cybersecurity experts.

The investment round also includes contributions from cybersecurity luminaries such as the co-founders of Demisto and other significant figures like D.J. Patil, Nir Polak, and Paul Cheesborough, who bring a wealth of expertise and experience to the table.

Vorlon is dedicated to enhancing the security of third-party APIs, which are critical for app-to-app communication and constitute over 80% of internet traffic as reported by Akamai. The company provides an AI-driven platform that helps enterprises manage and secure their API attack surfaces with advanced detection, threat intelligence, and remediation solutions.

The funds from this Series A round will be used to expand Vorlon’s business operations and further develop its innovative platform, which is designed to address the significant security gaps that third-party APIs often present. This expansion is crucial as the demand for robust API security solutions continues to grow globally.

Among additional details, the investment reflects a strategic continuation of support from Accel, which previously led the seed funding round, demonstrating strong confidence in Vorlon’s vision and leadership in the cybersecurity domain.

Vorlon CEO Amir Khayat expressed his gratitude for the ongoing investor support, “Third-party API security is a massive gap in cybersecurity. Vorlon’s ability to reduce the timeline between threat detection and remediation to minutes is what makes this technology so powerful. Accel is excited to continue our support for Amir, Amichay, and the team at Vorlon as they grow.”

Accel partner Steve Loughlin highlighted the critical nature of timely threat detection and remediation, “In many cases, organizations won’t find out about a vendor’s data breach until months after the fact. Since our launch in February of this year, we’ve seen incredibly high demand for the platform from security teams around the world, so we are beyond grateful to our funding partners for supporting our efforts to expand our business.”
