RedHat's acquisition of StackRox underscores the growing significance of DevSecOps. "DevSecOps, the best of DevOps and security operations, is becoming a top priority for enterprise customers. StackRox, with its integration with existing DevOps and CI/CD tools, delivers seamless DevSecOps for Kubernetes."

 

Last week, Red Hat announced that it’s acquiring StackRox, a California-based Kubernetes security company founded in 2014. 

This is one of the most strategic acquisitions for Red Hat, which is squarely focused on increasing the enterprise infrastructure market share. StackRox complements Red Hat’s current portfolio by bringing critical security capabilities missing from its infrastructure and platform offerings. 

The founders of StackRox, Ali Goshan and Wei Lien Dang, have a strong security background. Ali worked at Microsoft and PwC as a security researcher while Wei led secure product initiatives at CoreOS, AWS, Splunk, and Bracket Computing. In 2018, StackRox appointed Kamal Shah, an industry veteran, and an investor, as the president and CEO.
