CloudPassage Expands Cloud Security Capabilities for Docker, Kubernetes, and Container-related Services on AWS
SAN FRANCISCO, July 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CloudPassage, a recognized leader in cloud computing security and compliance, announced expanded container-related security capabilities for its award-winning Halo cloud security platform. A range of Halo's capabilities have been extended to Docker and Kubernetes environments hosted in public clouds or on-premises, including configuration security assessment, vulnerability management, log event inspection, threat detection, and compliance monitoring. These capabilities support generic Docker hosts, Kubernetes nodes, and AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS) instances. Halo now also provides API-based security posture management (CSPM) for AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) and AWS Elastic Container Registry (ECR).
These new features extend the ability of infosec teams to use Halo to maintain security and compliance in dynamic, diverse, and distributed cloud computing environments. The Halo security platform unifies and automates security controls and compliance across servers, containers, and IaaS resources in any mix of public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments.
"Enterprises of all sizes are increasingly using containers to take advantage of the speed, efficiency, portability, and scale benefits they deliver. However, containers' ephemeral nature and ability to run virtually anywhere can create challenges for information security teams tasked with universal computing asset security," said Carson Sweet, CloudPassage CEO and cofounder. "These new features further extend Halo's unified capabilities to address the market need to do more with a single unified platform."
To help infosec address the security and compliance challenges cloud-based container architectures create, CloudPassage has published a security blueprint that discusses the layers of the Kubernetes stack and provides best practices for securing each layer.
