Who we are
At KSOC, our mission is to empower development and cloud security teams to speed up their application delivery while ensuring the safety of Kubernetes. Our team comprises some of the most renowned security experts who have been helping enterprises secure their environments since Kubernetes' inception.
Kubernetes is the virtual compute standard for modern applications, but cloud-native security tools designed to secure Kubernetes often remain unused or fail to address Kubernetes-specific challenges.
Our goal is to allow security teams to effectively operationalize Kubernetes security measures, staying up-to-date with Kubernetes' rapid evolution, and finally answering the critical question, "What steps should I take today to minimize risk in my Kubernetes estate tomorrow?"

BACKED BY THE BEST
Lead with Empathy
Whether it's for our customers, partners, community, or employees, everything we do should start with empathy. We are all a global team with a mission to help others as well as ourselves, and to create a net-positive impact on the things we influence.
Anyone Can Cook
Great thinking can come from anywhere, and we encourage each other to share their perspectives across disciplines to innovate and ensure the best possible outcomes.
Optimistically Chase Vision
Vision sets our goals and calibrates our compass. We have bold visions for the future that help us define how we will create positive change in technology and ourselves.
Every day at KSOC offers a new challenge to learn and improve. We strive to sharpen our skills: Not only in technologies, but in collaboration and creativity as well.
Be Transparent with Intentions
Clear intentions yield clear results. We are open with each other and encourage honesty in all the work we take on.
Thrive Through Focus and Autonomy
Good thinking requires space and time. We empower each other to create that space for ourselves and to have the autonomy to solve problems thoroughly for the best outcome.
Be Quick, But Don't Hurry
Our sector is one of constant flux. Experimentation and iteration place extra worth on being nimble and learning from everything we do.
Strong Opinions, Loosely Held
While our opinions come from places of strong intuition and empiricism, we challenge our assumptions and always try to find the optimal (and sometimes less-traveled) path.
