JFrog announced that its DevOps Platform tools – JFrog Artifactory and JFrog Xray – are available with native deployment templates for customers using AWS GovCloud (US) and Azure Government clouds.
ARMO 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 also 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 seamlessly integrates into the DevOps pipeline at the CI/CD phase, eliminating operational complexity.
"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.

"The growing misalignment between the adoption of cloud-native and Kubernetes by larger enterprises, and the fragmented and costly first generation solutions such as side-cars, container security, etc. has created a need and opportunity for a new generation of solutions," said Yair Cassuto, Partner at Pitango First, who joined ARMO's Board of Directors. "Seeing ARMO's novel approach and how it enables the desired continuous control, deep visibility and tight security for any cloud application at extreme simplicity, has led us to join and invest in the company."
ARMO was founded by cloud and security industry veterans Shauli Rozen, Leonid Sandler and Benjamin Hirschberg. Sandler and Hirschberg bring their experience from building the video security solution for NDS, which was acquired by CISCO for $5 billion.
