SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Anchore, Inc., the leading experts in continuous security and compliance for containers, today announced strong growth and continued business momentum heading into 2021.
Anchore began the 2020 calendar year by raising $20 million in Series A funding. Following that, Anchore experienced 500% revenue growth year-over-year and quadrupled its number of employees. The company has also fielded remarkable customer growth, supported federal security innovation, launched a partner program, and issued several new product advancements.
"As we pause to reflect on 2020, it was a year of sustained growth for Anchore," said Saïd Ziouani, CEO of Anchore.

In addition, Anchore Federal's end-to-end security and compliance help achieve FedRAMP guidelines, the United States government standard for security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
Anchore also won an AFWERX Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contract with the U.S. Air Force to advance capabilities by enabling innovators to simplify technology transfer and accelerate results.
