Ilya Kirnos, Managing Director and CTO at SignalFire, said, “We believe Anchore is uniquely positioned to dominate the space around container workflow security. With a solid open source foundation, strong customer adoption, and a seasoned executive team from Ansible and Red Hat, Anchore has all the elements of success. We’re thrilled to share in this exciting journey.”
Saïd Ziouani, CEO of Anchore, said, “We created Anchore to empower developers to build secure software quickly and more efficiently. Given our progress to date, backed by strong adoption this past year, we’re now ready to scale our sales, professional services, and engineering resources globally to meet the need and achieve our mission to bring the benefits of container workflow security to customers around the world.”
