StackRox Named 2020 SINET 16 Innovator for Innovation in Container and Kubernetes Security

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – September 15, 2020 – StackRox, the leader in container and Kubernetes security, announced today that the company has been named a 2020 SINET 16 Innovator. The SINET 16, awarded annually by the Security Innovation Network, recognizes the most innovative and compelling companies in the cybersecurity industry. StackRox won for its ability to deliver Kubernetes-native container security and compliance to protect cloud-native applications and infrastructure at the speed and scale of digital business.

The StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform is the industry’s first and only Kubernetes-native container security platform, enabling security as code and delivering security that’s built in, not bolted on. This unique approach taps Kubernetes as the control plane for security as well as infrastructure, enabling DevSecOps at scale. The StackRox platform addresses all critical use cases for container security across the entire software development life cycle, including visibility, vulnerability management, compliance, network segmentation, configuration management, risk profiling, and runtime detection and response. By taking a Kube-native approach to addressing all these use cases, StackRox delivers better security, lower operational risk, and reduced operational costs for enterprises, cloud-native innovators, and federal government agencies.

“StackRox is honored to be recognized by the SINET 16 and its chairman and founder, Robert Rodriguez along with this year’s esteemed judging committee. With more than 2500 companies in the cybersecurity field, being in this select group underscores the level of innovation and success StackRox has delivered in helping our customers secure their own innovation pipeline of application development, enabling them to thrive in the digital era,” said Kamal Shah, president and CEO, StackRox.

This year’s 16 winners were selected by a judging panel of prominent venture capital and private equity leaders who specialize in security as well as investment bankers, industry and government agency CISOs, and other industry influencers. The judging panel spent more than two months deliberating over and diligently selecting winners. The program will culminate when StackRox presents its Kubernetes-native security platform virtually to the SINET community during the SINET 16 Showcase on October 20, 2020.
