This signifies to customers that Aqua Security can be deployed with the knowledge and reassurance that Aqua fully supports the specified versions and configurations on VMware Enterprise PKS,” said Pat Lee, vice president, Emerging ISVs & Solutions, VMware.

“We are excited to continue our collaboration with VMware and to be validated for VMware Enterprise PKS," noted Upesh Patel, vice president, Business Development, Aqua Security. “Enterprise adoption of Kubernetes is exploding, and with it the need for a scalable enterprise security platform. The combined strength of VMware Enterprise PKS and Aqua’s CSP delivers a secure, enterprise-ready solution to deploy cloud-native applications”
