Aqua Security Lands $30M Round for Cloud Native Security Platform
May 21, 2020
More than 400 companies across the finance, energy, aerospace, internet, media, travel, retail, pharmaceutical and hospitality sectors utilize Aqua's cloud native security solutions
In April 2020, the company launched its second SaaS product, Aqua Dynamic Threat Analysis, the industry's first sandbox for containers to detect and mitigate the risk of hidden malware
At the KubeCon/CloudNativeCon conference in December 2019 in San Diego, Aqua held its third KubeSec Enterprise Summit. The event drew more than 300 attendees and featured presentations by JPMorgan Chase, Primerica and Duke Energy sharing best practices for securing Kubernetes environments
Aqua has expanded its strategic investment in open source software with a dedicated team of engineers who create industry-standard tools, helping to further accelerate DevSeOps practices and Kubernetes adoption
"We are seeing customers continuing their move towards cloud-native technologies, often accelerating deployments as a way to enhance their agility in these unpredictable times," noted Dror Davidoff, CEO and co-founder of Aqua. "Security remains a key enabler of these initiatives, and with this significant new investment from Greenspring Associates, I feel confident in our ability to drive further innovation across our product portfolio and sustain the competitive advantage we have worked hard to establish."
