Aporeto: 2018 in Review

Aporeto: 2018 in Review

It’s been a wonderful year at Aporeto, and we hope it has been for you too. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of our network, in any way, shape or form – as a customer, partner, or blog subscriber. We hope to bring you more product updates, developments and curated content as we head into 2019.

So, how to sum up 2018 at Aporeto?

Just this year, we started selling our product and securing customer production environments.  Our revenue was zero last December.  It is wonderful to see that we have been able to earn the trust of some of the world’s most security-conscious enterprises.  We are now in the “hockey stick” growth phase.

And we had fun along the way.  We’ve conducted 118 foosball tourneys, and consumed 25,185 cups of coffee. That’s a lot of Nespresso capsules.

Alongside that, we’ve created 139 Github repositories.

And we’ve engineered millions of lines of code.

Our continual product development over the course of the year means that we can now proudly offer Azure, AWS, Red Hat Openshift, and IBM platform integrations, along with Istio and SIEM integrations. Most recently, we joined the VMware Technology Alliance partner program, and announced a solution for central security and monitoring of Cloud PKS (formerly VMware Kubernetes Engine or VKE) clusters, whether they are on AWS or in multi-cloud settings.

We were awarded Cyber Defense Magazine’s 2018 InfoSec Award as an Innovator in Application Security and named a 2018 Gartner Cool Vendor in Cloud Security, won the CISO Shark Tank in New York, alongside other awards and accolades.

One of our top moments came only two weeks ago when we prevented the Kubernetes API-server vulnerability and proved the security architecture we have adopted in Aporeto works. The Aporeto enforcers were preventing any attack against CVE-2018-1002105 before it was even announced.

Now, that’s a satisfying feeling.

With all the best wishes for the holidays and into 2019,

The whole Aporeto team <3
