StackRox Expands in EMEA
August 31, 2020

StackRox has launched operations in EMEA to provide global customers with local access to its Kubernetes-native security capabilities.

Led by cloud and cybersecurity veteran, Richard Olver, VP, International, StackRox, the company's go-to-market expansion into the region is being fueled by the accelerated adoption of DevOps and DevSecOps practices, particularly across Europe, as well as increased demand for container and Kubernetes security solutions. Olver is joined in StackRox EMEA leadership by Malte Isberner, Managing Director of StackRox GmbH. Over the past year, StackRox has seen significant growth in demand in Europe for the Kubernetes-native security capabilities it delivers through the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform.

As StackRox expands in EMEA, Olver will oversee the growth of company’s strategic partnerships and sales efforts as it engages new employees and customers across geographies and industries to propel its rapid revenue growth. StackRox’s current EMEA customer base includes cloud-native innovators in SaaS, mobile security, online gaming, FinTech, and eCommerce industries, among others.

“DevOps, and more recently DevSecOps, has emerged as the dominant operational focus for innovative companies in Europe, driving rapid adoption of cloud-native technologies and Kubernetes. We’re also seeing immense growth potential for the cloud-native stack in neighboring regions like the Middle East and Africa as digital transformation accelerates globally, “said Olver. “The adoption of these practices and technologies requires a new take on security. The Kubernetes-native approach StackRox has developed is extremely transformative in its ability to enable security and IT teams to operationalize container security. We’re thrilled to be making the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform available to a wider set of global users to create secure systems that foster faster application development and innovation.”

According to IDC, investments in cloud infrastructure in the EMEA region are expected to continue expanding despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, claiming an increasingly large share of the IT market. Businesses in the region are finding more business value created through cloud adoption as well as added cost savings, development efficiency, and security gains from cloud-native technologies like containers and Kubernetes. The business benefits of cloud-native are amplified through StackRox’s Kubernetes-native approach to security, which protects cloud-native apps across the full application development life cycle — build, deploy, and runtime — using Kubernetes's declarative data and built-in controls for better security, lower operational costs, and reduced operational risk. As a result, customers are able to bridge security and DevOps practices and enable security as code.

As a technology partner of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, and Red Hat, the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform is also available globally on all major cloud marketplaces.
