Armo was founded in 2019, and in January closed a $4.5 million seed funding round led by Pitango First to expand its go-to-market efforts and the commercial offering around its technology. The Tel Aviv, Israel-based company employs 26 people less than three years after its establishment, according to LinkedIn.
The company said it provides DevOps teams with a new approach to cloud-native workload and application deployment that infuses inherent security and visibility into applications, creating a virtual control plane that can be easily deployed in any cloud-native environment. Global enterprises have chosen Armo as their future security and visibility infrastructure, running in production environments.
Armo in October expanded its Kubescape open-source Kubernetes testing tool to leverage the MITRE framework, marking the first time teams can test Kubernetes against multiple frameworks in one single tool. The technology is designed to detect misconfigurations and software vulnerabilities at early stages of the CI/CD pipeline, and integrates natively with DevOps tools, including Jenkins, CircleCI and Github.
