ARMO Raises $30 Million for Open Source Kubernetes Security Platform

ARMO, an Israel-based company that specializes in Kubernetes security, on Wednesday announced raising $30 million in a Series A funding round.

The latest investment, which brings ARMO’s total funding to date to $34.5 million, was led by Tiger Global and Hyperwise Ventures, with participation from existing investors Pitango First and Peled Ventures.

The money will be used for international expansion and to grow developer, product and marketing teams.

ARMO has developed Kubescape, an end-to-end open source security platform for the Kubernetes container orchestration solution.

The platform is designed to scan configuration files, clusters and worker nodes for known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. It also provides recommendations for addressing the identified issues.

While the community edition of the Kubescape platform is free, ARMO also offers paid Team and Enterprise plans. The company says its platform is used by tens of thousands of users.
