(Bloomberg) -- Salesforce.com Inc. led a new funding round in the fast-growing Israeli cyber security startup Wiz, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Wiz, whose software allows clients like DocuSign Inc. and Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. to find potential risks in systems that run on cloud services, raised more than $120 million from investors, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity as the matter is private.

Representatives for Salesforce and Wiz declined to comment.

The Tel Aviv based firm has attracted significant investment since its founding in early 2020, raising some $230 million in previous funding rounds, the last of which valued the company at $1.7 billion. Existing investors include Greenoaks Capital, Advent International, Sequoia and Insight Partners.

Global cloud management and security spending is forecast to jump to $20 billion next year, a rise of nearly 60% over the figure in 2019, according to a Gartner Inc. report from November.
