Aqua Security Acquires Argon, the Leader in Software Supply Chain Security


Aqua security, the leading pure-play cloud native security provider, today announced the acquisition of Argon, a pioneer in software supply chain security. Argon and Aqua now offer the industry’s first solution to secure all stages of software build and release. Shifting further “left,” Aqua Security’s Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) is now the only solution that can protect the full software development lifecycle (SDLC) from code through build to runtime, ensuring the end-to-end integrity of applications.

Preventing Software Supply Chain Attacks

The industry is experiencing a dramatic shift in attackers targeting the supply chain with recent high-profile attacks such as SolarWinds and CodeCov. From code theft to code manipulation, bad actors are increasingly exploiting weaknesses in the software delivery pipeline. Enterprises are required to take a proactive, modernized approach to protect the integrity of their software and to secure their customers and products.

Argon seamlessly connects to existing CI/CD pipelines via an agentless implementation and instantly maps the development environment itself, as well as assets, code, and user activities. The solution prioritizes and automates remediation of issues to follow security best practices and compliance rules while ensuring zero-trust deployment. Argon’s code-tampering detection technology performs validity checks on every step of the software delivery process to confirm no tampering has occurred, ultimately preventing supply chain attacks.
