Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform features improved visibility of Kubernetes environments

Threat Stack, the leader in cloud infrastructure security and compliance, announced enhancements to the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform that provide customers with complete security observability of Kubernetes-managed containers.

The improved visibility of Kubernetes environments enables Threat Stack’s customers to leverage container infrastructure without increasing risk or relying on multiple point solutions to achieve full stack cloud security observability.

As companies adopt Kubernetes to help orchestrate their container infrastructure, security processes and policies have been slow to adapt. This has led to increased risk as companies deploy containers without the appropriate security processes and tools in place.

Threat Stack is enabling its customers to securely adopt containers and Kubernetes by eliminating the additional risk associated with the lack of visibility into their container infrastructure.

New features included in the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform designed to improve visibility into Kubernetes environments include:

  • Integration with Kubernetes API endpoints – The Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform can pull data from Kubernetes in multiple ways, providing more flexibility depending on the customer use case.
  • Real-time behavioral analysis of Kubernetes environments – Through a new direct integration with Kubernetes, the platform will enable Threat Stack customers to identify signs of risky behavior or intrusion in their Kubernetes environments.
  • Proactive identification of misconfigurations – New monitoring of Kubernetes logs will identify misconfigurations within Kubernetes that have the potential to introduce risk into the environment.
  • Improved Kubernetes ruleset – New rules will detect behaviors such as pod creation or deletion, pod starts and stops, node behavior events, login events, and configuration changes.

“Nearly every company realizes the cost efficiencies and reliability containers offer, but in the rush to achieve these benefits, many have overlooked the risks associated with the lack of visibility often found in container infrastructure,” said Aditya Joshi, Executive Vice President, Product and Engineering, Threat Stack.

“The latest enhancements to the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform drastically reduce this risk by providing unparalleled visibility into container infrastructure.”
