StackRox to Help Secure Cloud-Based Financial Infrastructure Under DHS Contract

StackRox has received a contract from the Department of Homeland Security to help a large U.S. financial services provider secure cloud-based applications through the implementation of a Kubernetes and container security platform.

The unnamed financial company will implement StackRox’s technology in efforts to protect infrastructure, detect runtime threats and manage compliance under phase 3 of the Silicon Valley Innovation Program managed by DHS’ science and technology directorate, StackRox said Wednesday.

The project is part of the directorate’s Next Generation Cyber Infrastructure program, which aims to defend critical networks and systems against sophisticated threats, and will center around containerized app security for use cases such as visibility, vulnerability and configuration management, incident response, regulatory compliance and threat detection.

“Given our long partnership with In-Q-Tel and our close work with the United States Air Force, DoD, DHS and U.S. Intelligence Community, protecting government infrastructure is woven into the fabric of StackRox innovation,” said Ali Golshan, chief technology officer of StackRox.

The Mountain View, Calif.-based security company worked on a container threat data sharing approach for the financial sector under a Phase II SVIP contract awarded in 2018.
