SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – March 6, 2019 – StackRox, the leader in container and Kubernetes security, announced today that it won the Excellence Award for Best Emerging Technology in the 2019 SC Awards by SC Media.

With StackRox, users can visualize their container and Kubernetes environments, pinpoint high-priority risks that need immediate remediation, continuously harden their environments to reduce the attack surface, and find and stop malicious activity.
“As organizations adopt containers, microservices, and Kubernetes to drive business transformation and innovation, they need security that addresses the challenges of this new stack and fits into DevOps processes,” said Kamal Shah, StackRox CEO. “StackRox makes it possible for businesses to operationalize security for container and Kubernetes environments, enabling them to capitalize on the flexibility, portability, and fast pace of cloud-native application development.
