Containers are transforming how organizations deploy and use applications. But securing your organization’s containerized deployments means looking beyond assumptions and asking the hard questions about Kubernetes security.
Assumption #1: My Kubernetes platform offers adequate container workload protection.
The Truth: While Kubernetes has a few security features, it is NOT a security platform developed with the mission of protecting against exploits and zero-day attacks.
Assumption #2: Combining traditional security tools like firewalls and IDS/IPS with Kubernetes built-in network security will adequately protect against network attacks on containers.
The Truth: Traditional security tools, as well as built-in Kubernetes network policy, are blind to network based attacks and don’t provide state-of the-art network protections to containers such as application (Layer 7) segmentation, DLP, container WAF, packet capture and Zero Trust based network protections.
Assumption #3: Scanning images, containers, pods, and production nodes for vulnerabilities is enough.
The Truth: Scanning for common vulnerabilities and exposures is like looking in the rearview mirror—it doesn’t protect you against zero-day attacks, insider attacks, embedded malware and backdoors and other attacks against production workloads.
Assumption #4: My cloud provider and network policies create secure container environments.
The Truth: Public cloud providers make it clear that you are responsible for a significant portion of securing your applications, network and infrastructure from attack.
