You should worry about your Kubernetes security!
You don't want to suffer from security incidents with your containers and Kubernetes environments. We help you secure your applications and Kubernetes clusters in all three phases: build, deploy and runtime. Now you are protected from all known vulnerabilities.
Why is Kubernetes Security important?
In recent years, containers and Kubernetes have become a more popular choice for many organisations. But along with the numerous benefits they provide, they bring new challenges as well. As more containers are deployed to clusters, maintaining visibility and ensuring security becomes more difficult. Using containerised applications gives us the ability to create more complex architectures in an easier way. On the other hand, it creates new security threats that must be addressed.
Since Kubernetes is tied to different components, each component has its own security risks and needs to be checked and secured during build, deployment and runtime.
Security and Compliance challenges are the top concern
According to the fall 2020 edition of the "State of Container and Kubernetes Security" report, 90% of survey respondents had experienced a security incident in their container and Kubernetes environments over the last 12 months.
Kubernetes Attack Vendors
If the infrastructure layer is vulnerable, then everything is at risk. Security starts with the infrastructure, physical networks and operating systems.
By accessing the API server or kubelet, attackers can disrupt applications and gain access to secrets, resources or containers.
Using insecure container images and allowing privileged users or service accounts can expose your applications or nodes so attackers can gain unauthorised access.
Having vulnerable dependencies in your application, exposing unwanted ports, and most importantly, not integrating security into application pipeline can create security issues.
Don’t rely on Kubernetes default built-in Security Measures
Even though Kubernetes has many built-in security features to help you protect against many threats, this is not enough. Using default values or having a misconfiguration may allow attackers to sneak into your environment.
