A year ago, when we planned our strategy and had our predictions for 2020, we most definitely could not predict how erratic 2020 would turn out to be. We too had to adjust and provide support for our employees’ and clients’ new needs. However, 2020 turned out to be a tipping point year for the Kubernetes community with a massive K8s adoption across the globe. Many companies made a huge shift to the cloud and in order to do it the most cost effective and efficient way they turned to Kubernetes. As a result we faced a growing need for Kubernetes Security and therefore 2020 has become the best year yet for Alcide.
The Alcide team has always been our greatest asset, and this year we grew our team by 20% and have taken our teamwork and one-team culture to the next level. We have established our global sales team which now includes team members working with the US and European markets, grewing our revenue by about 300%. Our R&D team grew stronger this year with our most efficient year ever at Alcide with 20 releases and over 15 K8s specific checks packs – all with a “DevOps first” mindset. We solidified the Alcide Kubernetes Platform, with our new unique audit log monitoring kAudit module, our unique Admission Control capability and recently added the first K8s-native Image Scanning – making it the most comprehensive Design to Runtime multi-cloud K8s Security platform in the market today.
