StackRox Achieves AWS Container Competency Partner Status for Container and Kubernetes Security

StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform now certified to integrate with AWS services and improve customers’ ability to protect container and Kubernetes workloads on AWS

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — March 10, 2020 — StackRox, a leader in container and Kubernetes security, today announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Container Competency Partner status for its StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform. StackRox received this designation for its ability to seamlessly integrate with AWS services and provide security and compliance for container and Kubernetes workloads on AWS, such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS).

Security and compliance is a shared responsibility in cloud deployments, and StackRox helps customers meet their responsibilities of protecting the workloads of their cloud-native applications running on AWS. By leveraging StackRox in AWS environments, businesses can further benefit from running containers and Kubernetes in AWS while maintaining visibility, security, and compliance of their cloud-native applications.

“As we roll out some of the retail industry’s most innovative programs, we rely on AWS and StackRox to scale and protect our global SaaS operations,” said Jason Harris, vice president of cloud architecture for Aptos. “StackRox provides comprehensive security and compliance controls for our cloud-native applications running in AWS, and certifications like this one give us the peace of mind that our partners’ solutions will work well together.”

“Achieving AWS Container Competency status is a testament to the power that the StackRox Kubernetes-native architecture delivers to DevOps and security teams that need to protect cloud-native applications on AWS and operationalize security at scale,” said Kamal Shah, CEO, StackRox. “StackRox, in combination with AWS services, helps users achieve security ‘of’ the cloud as well as ‘in’ the cloud, to deliver secure and high-performance cloud applications that bring immense transformational value to their enterprises.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
