A Buyer’s Guide to Kubernetes Security
The shift of workloads from traditional on-premise systems to ephemeral, cloud native resources has introduced incredible flexibility and economies of scale to applications of all shapes and sizes.
Leading the technical drive toward this new frontier is Kubernetes, an open source platform for orchestrating the lifecycle of cloud resources from cradle to grave, including provisioning, ongoing management, and dynamic workload scaling.
Such a powerful tool opens myriad new possibilities – not just for developers to create incredible new customer experiences, but also for malicious actors to exploit newly-created vulnerabilities.
There are many factors to consider when determining how best to secure your Kubernetes environment. The purpose of this guide is to raise awareness of these risks and inform a decision among several market options.
