“Software that’s as complex and as extensive as Kubernetes is bound to have vulnerabilities,” wrote Rani Osnat, Vice President of Product Marketing at Aqua Security, in an email to SDxCentral. “Taking the initiative to perform an extensive third-party security audit … is absolutely the right thing to do in order to get ahead of having […]
The multi-cloud approach is also shifting from ad hoc to intentional in more companies. Amir Jerbi, CTO and cofounder at Aqua Security, summed this up well for us recently: “Multi-cloud has become a strategic initiative for many enterprises, large and small.”
“Another critical aspect [of multi-cloud security] is that multi-cloud means that an organization will want to be able to move workloads between clouds, and when that happens, not be required to reconfigure the entire security toolset,” says Amir Jerbi, co-founder and CTO at Aqua Security. “One factor to consider is that cloud-provider-specific settings should be made […]
Rani Osnat, vice president of product marketing at Aqua Security, previously told SDxCentral that Kubernetes is a “complex system and it’s bound to have vulnerabilities. The fact that CVE disclosures are becoming more commonplace is a good thing, as is the fact that they’re not all severe.”
Since Cloud Foundry uses the Diego system to manage app containers, Aqua now also automatically scans Diego hosts (so-called cells) for known vulnerabilities, and exposure of sensitive data. On top of that, the service tests for cell compliance against the CIS Linux Benchmark. More details can be found on the Aqua Security blog.
Aqua Security has extended its container security alliance with Pivotal Software to include containerized applications running on the distribution of the Cloud Foundry platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that Pivotal makes available. The two companies already have a relationship involving Pivotal Container Service (PKS), a distribution of a Kubernetes platform that Pivotal curates in collaboration with sister company VMware. Aqua Security will […]

With Cloud Foundry users pushing code faster to production, “application security checks must be accessible within the deployment pipeline in order to scale safety and compliance,” said Angus MacDonald, Pivotal’s general manager for technology ecosystem. The partners said the addition of Aqua’s runtime security tool would help automate those controls.
