Cloud security startup Armo has announced its launch out of stealth having secured $4.5 million in seed funding, from Pitango First. The company plans to use the funds to expand its go-to-market efforts and commercial offering of its technology.
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.
Armo Workload Fabric provides an in-memory security layer, and governance layers, such as data flow compliance, transparent data protection, and secured tunneling and networking.
In addition, the platform integrates into the DevOps pipeline at the CI/CD phase, eliminating operational complexity.
“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,” quipped Shauli Rozen, CEO and Co-Founder of Armo.
