Aqua Security has unveiled Aqua Stars, a new initiative to celebrate its top open source software (OSS) contributors. With monthly awards, the recognition program spotlights contributors who have made significant impacts on Aqua’s open source projects and the cloud native security community. These awards recognise the efforts of the largest open source cloud native security community in the world and those who help make cloud native security accessible to everyone.

“Over the years, we have had the privilege of working with talented individuals who helped make our open source projects and community the success it is today. Now we want to take the opportunity to show our gratitude and formally recognize valued community members,” said Itay Shakury, director of open source at Aqua. “In addition to showing our appreciation, we hope that this program can help strengthen our open source community and encourage engagement, collaboration and impact.”

Each month, Aqua will honour a Star Contributor with a prize. Aqua Stars will be featured in the Aqua Stars Hall of Fame which will highlight their journeys in open source and their contributions. The program culminates in the recognition of the Super Star Contributor, who will join Aqua’s open source team for an all-expenses-paid trip to KubeCon 2023.

Individuals will be considered for the Aqua Stars program by making any kind of significant contribution to Aqua’s key open source projects. Aqua is kicking off this initiative by recognising a group of contributors, who have been instrumental in its community over the past 12 months. 

Aqua Stars is an extension of Aqua’s mission to invest, advocate for and drive innovation within the OSS cloud native security community at large. The company’s commitment to OSS helps educate engineering, security, and DevOps teams through accessible tools, reducing the skills gap and automating security controls into cloud native pipelines well before applications go into production. Aqua’s open source projects are industry-leading and collectively have amassed nearly 35,000 GitHub stars.
