Israel-based Cloud Security Startup Armo Emerged from Stealth this week with $4.5 Million in Funding

A new cloud security startup emerged from stealth this week with $4.5 million in funding and a mission to strengthen security for cloud-native workloads. According to Israel-based Armo, as more companies adopt cloud technologies, many accelerate use of Kubernetes as the container orchestration platform. However, these current solutions give limited visibility and security for cloud-native platforms, Armo officials say in a release. Some use “sidecars,” or bolted-on security tools, but these don’t always provide a seamless and secure environment.
