Anchore, Inc., a Santa Barbara, CA-based software-as-a-service platform (SaaS) platform to vet, certify, inspect, and synchronize container contents, raised over $2M in seed funding.
Backers included Menlo Ventures and e-Ventures.
The company is using the funds to launch its beta program for users working with containers at every stage of the application lifecycle.
Co-founded by Saïd Ziouani, CEO, Dan Nurmi, CTO, and Tim Gerla, Head of Products, Anchore allows users to create a trusted standard for containers that is predictable and protectable, with development, production, and security on the same page from the start.
Through a common portal, application developers can select verified containers from a curated registry and ensure the right containers get deployed in the right places. This centralized interface will be used for compatibility verification, vulnerability scanning, and other inspection and synchronization tasks.
Compatible with public container registries such as DockerHub, Anchore will interact with container platforms, including Kubernetes, Mesos, CoreOS, ECS, and Google Container Engine. The company is focused on providing certification and visibility into container contents for all stakeholders in a container-based application environment.
Users can sign up for the Anchore beta program now with an expected availability in the second quarter of 2016.
