ARMO, an Israeli startup that offers the Kubernetes based open source security project Kubescape, Raised $30 million in Series A funding led by Tiger Global with Hyperwise Ventures. The new investment comes a little over a year after ARMO raised $4.5 million in seed funding,
Kubernetes, also known as K8s, is an open-source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It was originally created by Google, but is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

Founded in 2019 by cloud and security industry veterans Shauli Rozen, Leonid Sandler and Benjamin Hirschberg, ARMO declares itself to be on a mission to create the first “end-to-end Kubernetes open-source security platform, built for developers, and trusted by security professionals.”
ARMO was recently selected among hundreds of applicants to participate in Intel Ignite, Intel’s startup growth program. The company boasts that it can protect a client’s IT workloads in run-time in a deterministic way, reducing false positives, shortening detection time, and creating more resilient environments without complex policies and rules to manage. It also declares that its security works continuously, both when applications and data are at rest and during use.
“To prevent hacking, we establish and maintain trusted security anchors in the protected software memory throughout the application execution lifecycle.”
ARMO Workload Fabric provides DevOps teams with a new approach to cloud-native workload and application deployment that infuse inherent security and visibility into applications and creates a virtual control plane that can be easily deployed in any cloud-native environment.
“With the growing complexity and highly dynamic nature of modern applications and cloud environments, changing even hundreds of times a day, security gaps like software vulnerabilities and excessive privileges, are becoming harder to monitor and remediate. This highlights the importance of incorporating control and security capabilities at runtime,” said Shauli Rozen, CEO and Co-Founder of ARMO. “Existing runtime technologies such as side-cars and RASP fall short when it comes to security, performance and deployment. I’m thrilled to announce ARMO’s launch to offer the first solution bringing security, visibility, control and compliance to cloud-native environments.”
