Armo Raises $30M in Series A Funding

Armo, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based creator of a Kubernetes open source security project called Kubescape, raised $30M in Series A funding.

The round was led by Tiger Global and Hyperwise Ventures with participation from Pitango First and Peled Ventures.

The company intends to use the funds to open additional offices and hire internationally, and expand its product and marketing teams.

Founded by Shauli Rozen, Leonid Sandler and Ben Hirschberg, Armo is advancing an end-to-end Kubernetes open-source security platform, built for developers, and used by security professionals. Kubescape scans configuration files (i.e. YAML and Helm), Kubernetes clusters and worker nodes for misconfigurations and known vulnerabilities based on NSA-CISA hardening guidance, MITRE ATT&CK and other DevOps frameworks and vulnerability databases, calculating risk scores and trends. A Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) module visualizes the connection of roles and privileges between different parts of a Kubernetes cluster.
