A Series A funding round has raised $30 million for ARMO, the startup that created the open-source Kubernetes security platform Kubescape, according to TechCrunch
Kuberscape allows users to scan for misconfigurations, user configuration issues and potential vulnerabilities
in their Kubernetes clusters, YAML files and HELM charts. Organizations are also able to create their own security and compliance frameworks or adopt standard ones such as NSA and MITRE. One useful feature of Kuberscape is its ability to give teams a detailed explanation as to why a specific control failed and how to correct the issue, which may allow users to implement the fixes directly within the Kuberscape UI.
Shauli Rozen, CEO and co-founder of ARMO, said the company's intention is to develop an end-to-end Kubernetes security solution, which it will keep open-source.
Tiger Global partner John Curtius said of this plan, "Kubernetes is open-source, and Kubernetes security should be open-source too, following the same culture of transparency and collaboration."
