StackRox expands in EMEA to meet global Kubernetes-Native Security demand

smart 4168483 640StackRox, a specialist in container and Kubernetes security, has launched operations in EMEA to provide local access to its Kubernetes-based security capabilities for global customers

Led by veteran of cloud and cybersecurity, Richard Olver, vice-president, international, StackRox, the company’s go-to-market expansion into the region is fuelled by the accelerated adoption of DevOps and DevSecOps practices, particularly across Europe, as well as increased demand for container and Kubernetes security solutions.

Olver is joined in StackRox EMEA leadership by Malte Isberner, managing director of StackRox GmbH. StackRox’s demand for the Kubernetes-native security capabilities it provides through the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform has increased significantly in Europe over the last year.

“We serve a demanding audience of insurance and banking customers, protecting, and securing their customers’ interactions, so securing our platform is essential to maintaining their trust. Enabling visibility across our entire container and Kubernetes landscape, along with the ability to harden the environment, is crucial to protecting that customer data,” said Jeroen Starrenburg, CEO of Onegini, an innovator in consumer identity and access management.

StackRox gives us a low-friction, Kubernetes-native way to secure the cloud-native, Kubernetes-orchestrated infrastructure and applications at the heart of our security platform. With out-of-the-box policies and controls across build, deploy, and runtime, StackRox makes delivering on our security needs significantly less burdensome and our business more agile,” he added.

As StackRox expands in EMEA, Olver will oversee the growth of the strategic partnerships and sales efforts of the company as it involves new employees and customers across geographies and industries to drive its rapid growth in revenue. The current EMEA customer base for StackRox includes, among others, cloud-native innovators in the SaaS, mobile security, online gaming, FinTech, and eCommerce industries.

Investment in cloud infrastructure in the EMEA region is expected to continue to expand, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, claiming an increasingly large share of the IT market, according to IDC.
