Red Hat announced new capabilities and features for Red Hat OpenShift, the company's enterprise Kubernetes platform.
Aqua Security announced that its Cloud Native Security Platform is available through Red Hat® Marketplace, an open cloud marketplace that makes it easier to discover and access certified software for container-based environments across the hybrid cloud.
Built in partnership by Red Hat and IBM, Red Hat Marketplace is designed to meet the unique needs of developers, procurement teams and IT leaders through simplified and streamlined access to popular enterprise software products, including the Aqua Platform.
The Aqua Platform provides full visibility into application activity, allowing organizations to detect and prevent suspicious activity and attacks, providing transparent, automated security while helping to enforce policy and simplify regulatory compliance. Aqua’s native integration with OpenShift provides a full-stack security solution for our joint customers, automating security controls in CI/CDs like OpenShift Pipelines and enforcing application immutability in production.
The Red Hat Marketplace makes it easy for users to find and purchase the Aqua Platform, and they can then use the on-demand deployment capability to install and evaluate Aqua with zero touch and minimal configuration. Existing customers can also use the same on-demand, zero-touch environment to purchase additional licenses.
“Enterprise buying patterns are increasingly shifting toward automated, online billing mechanisms that allow companies to leverage existing cloud or services budgets, as well the flexibility to utilize OPEX budgets for software purchases when necessary,” said Dror Davidoff, CEO and co-founder of Aqua. “By working more closely with our industry-leading partners like Red Hat and IBM, we are able to leverage the multitude of sales platforms they offer to help accelerate time-to-value for our joint customers while growing our business efficiently.”
“We believe Red Hat Marketplace is an essential destination to unlock the value of cloud investments,” said Lars Herrmann, Senior Director of Technology Partnerships, Red Hat. “With the marketplace, we are making it as fast and easy as possible for companies to implement the tools and technologies that can help them succeed in this hybrid multicloud world. We’ve simplified the steps to find and purchase the Aqua Platform that is tested, certified and supported on Red Hat OpenShift, and we’ve removed operational barriers to deploy and manage Aqua on Kubernetes-native infrastructure to secure your applications.”
All solutions available through the Red Hat Marketplace have been tested and certified for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, allowing them to run anywhere OpenShift runs.
