Bishop Fox, a leading authority in offensive security, announces today $46 million in growth funding from WestCap, with additional contributions from NextEquity Partners and Rockpool Capital. The funds build on the $75 million invested by Carrick Capital earlier this year, bringing the total funding for the round to $129 million. Bishop Fox has raised more than $154 million in lifetime funding, including a $25 million Series A investment from Forgepoint Capital. The company also welcomed WestCap Partner Kevin Marcus as a Board Observer.
Despite an uncertain economic climate, Bishop Fox fielded interest from multiple investors because of its success and momentum over the past 24 months.
For nearly two decades, the company has maintained a reputation as the offensive security partner of choice, with customers including more than 25 percent of the Fortune 100, eight of the top 10 tech companies, and all the top global media companies. Maintaining an overall Net Promoter Score (NPS) above 80 for multiple years, Bishop Fox achieved a world-class score of 90 for the year-to-date through the third quarter of 2022 for its consulting services.
Funding will be used to accelerate the expansion of the company’s Cosmos platform, fuel go-to-market activities in North America, Europe and Latin America, and build additional internal training programs designed to develop a new generation of cyber talent.
Born out of nearly two decades of offensive security engagements, Cosmos represents the state-of-the-art in attack surface protection and offensive security-as-a-service. The platform is a force multiplier for a team of security experts who, apart from the federal government, represent the largest and most experienced group of offensive security professionals in the world. This combination enables Bishop Fox to provide the most comprehensive, continuous protection in the industry and offers customers dramatic reductions in cost, time, and resources without sacrificing security.
