Additionally, non-GAAP financial measures will be discussed in this conference call. A reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is also available in our earnings press release, which can be found in the Investor Relations section of our website, where you will also be able to find a webcast of today's call.

With that, I'd like to turn the call over to Udi.

Udi Mokady

Thanks, Erica and good afternoon everyone. Thank you for joining the call today. The third quarter was another great quarter for CyberArk. Total revenue reached a record $84.7 million, increasing 31% year-over-year. We generated record non-GAAP operating income of $21 million and our net cash from operations was $89.2 million in the first nine months of the year, already exceeding the cash flow we generated in all of 2017.

And third, Chief Information Security Officers are solving increasingly complex regulatory challenges by focusing on securing the environment and not merely checking a compliance box. Given our leadership position and the breadth of our solutions, we benefited from these macro trends in the third quarter.

In terms of our strategy, every team across the organization executed well and contributed to our strong performance this quarter and year-to-date. Innovation has been key to our success.

Year-to-date, new customer additions have grown by 37% over the first nine months of last year, accelerating from about 10% in the first nine months of 2017 and 28% in the first nine months of 2016. With the wins in the third quarter, we are honored to be helping secure the world's leading
