StackRox, the leader in container and Kubernetes security, announced today that it has secured an additional $26.5 million in funding and achieved more than 240% revenue growth in the first half of the year. Menlo Ventures led the funding round with participation from Highland Capital Partners and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise along with StackRox’s existing investors, Sequoia Capital and Redpoint Ventures. The strong first-half revenue results exceeded the company’s pre-pandemic goals and were driven by companies accelerating their digital transformation initiatives and adopting cloud-native technologies and DevSecOps.
Gen 1 container security platforms are container-native, limiting visibility to just containers, requiring separate external controls, and isolating security operations. StackRox delivers the next generation of container security, with a container- and Kubernetes-native architecture. Their deep integrations with Kubernetes provide richer context, native enforcement, and continuous hardening.
