ARMO is building technology to provide developer security for Kubernetes containers from development to production and from configuration to runtime.
ARMO has patented technology and tools it said fit natively within the CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous delivery or development) pipeline and existing development tools to help assure DevOps, DevSecOps, and developers that their Kubernetes clusters, containers and microservices are continually secure. The ARMO technology scans clusters, nodes and API servers for misconfigurations and configuration drifts to help find risks and Kubernetes resource fails and recommends fixes. It also scans container images for vulnerabilities and prioritizes which vulnerabilities need to be patched first.
ARMO exited stealth in October 2021 with $4.5 million in seed funding and in April 2022 closed a $30 million round of funding.
