Red hat, an open source American software provider, has made it official that it is going to gain Cloud Security provider StackRox, for an undisclosed amount. Trade analysts say that the former will use the latter’s technology to bolster the security features on its OpenShift Hybrid Cloud Platform that serves Kubernetes.
After the disclosure of data breach on SolarWinds Software servers that impacted many of the government agencies in America, companies are showing interest only in online services that are secure enough to process their classical data.
Thus, Red Hat that has been striving hard to provide a secure Kubernetes Infrastructure for the cloud native applications within the production IT environments has integrated the technology gained from StackRox to allow companies host open source applications across multi cloud platforms.
Therefore, business firms that are concerned about security, monitoring, data management and networking can use the newly incepted tech from Red Hat in their enterprise production environments using Kubernetes.
“As StackRox provides a clear visibility across all Kubernetes Clusters, it can be used by companies that are indulging in deep data collection”, says Paul Cormier, the President and CEO of Red Hat. He added that StackRox already supports RedHat’s OpenShift Environment along with AWS Elastic Kubernetes, Microsoft Azure Kubernetes, and Google Kubernetes Engine.
StackRox CEO Kamal Shah said that his company is thrilled to join industry’s first Kubernetes Native Security platform that is meant for hybrid, multi cloud and edge deployments.
