One of the most significant issues cybersecurity teams must come to terms with in 2019 is how container security should be implemented and maintained. The days when cybersecurity teams were solely responsible for implementing cybersecurity controls are long past. In fact, as cybersecurity becomes more distributed across the enterprise, the way cybersecurity metrics are consumed […]
As Kubernetes’ star rises, it becomes a more interesting target for bad guys. “The rapid rise in adoption of Kubernetes is likely to uncover gaps that previously went unnoticed on the one hand, and on the other hand gain more attention from bad actors due to a higher profile,” says Amir Jerbi, CTO at Aqua Security.
“There’s a very basic understanding of cloud native needed at that level,” adds Liz Rice, Technology Evangelist at Aqua Security. “They don’t need a huge level of technical knowledge, we just need to get the terminology and awareness into the boardroom,” she notes.
The same goes for containers and containerization orchestration and automation tools like Kubernetes, Amazon ECS, and Docker Swarm. And while some people have previously debated whether serverless technology would take over containerization momentum, the truth is they’re actually complementary, says Rani Osnat, vice president of product marketing at Aqua Security.
As part of our continuing commitment to open standards and supporting a broad and varied ecosystem, we are pleased to announce that Aqua Security has extended its container security platform to support Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). You can now deploy the Aqua runtime security solution on OKE with full Aqua support.
The biggest ever Kubernetes event held in Seattle in December proved beyond a doubt that 2018 was the year that Kubernetes went into its production phase. Such massive adoption brings with it inevitable challenges around security, tooling and management at scale. It looks like 2019 will be at least as exciting!
The Aqua Container Security Platform can be deployed on-premises or in a customer’s private or public cloud environment. The platform components are containerized and are easy to deploy using orchestrators, Helm charts, etc. Additionally, Aqua offers two cloud-based consumption options. Pay-per-scan on AWS Marketplace provides image scanning on a pay-per-scan basis, which can be used […]
One challenge that has come with Kubernetes’ growing stature is the increased focus on security. While the project routinely touts security updates as part of its quarterly version releases, a major security flaw was discovered just as the last release for the year was announced.
