Aqua Security, the leading pure-play cloud native security provider, is unveiling Aqua Stars as a new initiative to celebrate its top open source software (OSS) contributors. With monthly awards, the recognition program spotlights contributors who have made significant impacts on Aqua’s open source projects and the cloud native security community. These awards recognize the efforts of the largest open source cloud native security community in the world and those who help make cloud native security accessible to everyone.
Aqua Stars is an extension of Aqua’s mission to invest, advocate for and drive innovation within the OSS cloud native security community at large. The company’s commitment to OSS helps educate engineering, security, and DevOps teams through accessible tools, reducing the skills gap and automating security controls into cloud native pipelines well before applications go into production. Aqua’s open source projects are industry-leading and collectively have amassed nearly 35,000 GitHub stars.
