Kubescape, created by ARMO, First Security Scanner to be Accepted as CNCF Sandbox Project

ARMO, the cybersecurity company that developed the first-of-its kind end-to-end open source Kubernetes security platform Kubescape, announced that Kubescape has been accepted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a sandbox project. The popular open-source Kubernetes security platform has been transferred to the cloud-native community by ARMO as a part of the company’s commitment to open source software. ARMO will continue to lead the development of Kubescape as part of the company’s core mission: to make Kubernetes security a simple and trustworthy DevOps-first experience.

“ARMO is a company committed to open source and dedicated to Kubernetes,” said Craig Box, VP Open Source at Armo. “Bringing Kubescape to the CNCF was an obvious choice. Kubescape helps tens of thousands of users secure their Kubernetes clusters and CI/CD pipelines. As the first security scanner to become a CNCF project, we will strive to support and integrate with other CNCF projects, and look forward to building a wide contributor community. Kubescape underpins ARMO’s commercial products, and we’re looking forward to adding more great features to Kubescape over time.”
