Bitdefender recently announced GravityZone Security for Containers, expanding their cloud workload security (CWS) offering with run-time support for containers and Kubernetes infrastructures with Linux kernel module independence for the Bitdefender technology.
This new product delivers threat prevention, extended endpoint detection and response (XEDR) and anti-exploit protection for containers running in both private and public clouds with comprehensive visibility and control through the GravityZone console. The new Linux kernel module independence capability helps businesses move to the latest Linux distributions without the delays typically required with other cybersecurity products – by reducing testing and validation requirements that kernel dependencies necessitate and by avoiding the risk of security and system stability challenges which they can introduce.
GravityZone Security for Containers offers several benefits for cloud operations and security teams:
- Unmatched protection against runtime attacks — protects containers and cloud-native workloads against Linux kernel, application zero-day and known exploit attacks in real-time and identifies the full context of incidents including which images and pods were involved.
- Multi-distribution security — eliminates Linux security compatibility challenges via our single, lightweight agent that sits above the Linux kernel enabling organizations to update to the latest Linux distributions faster without sacrificing security efficacy.
- Complete visibility and control — is multi-platform and enables security visibility and control over all containers and workloads across hybrid or multi-cloud environments from a single dashboard.
- MITRE ATT&CK® mapping — maps cloud workload container attacks to the MITRE ATT&CK® Framework. In the most recent MITRE ATT&CK test, GravityZone detected 100 percent of attack techniques against Linux systems.
