Demystifying Kubernetes Security
The nature of today’s cloud native applications challenges legacy security models and tools. Programmatic access to sensitive information is key to making modern applications more useful to customers, but securing that access is more imperative than ever.
Purpose-built microservices enjoy the flexibility of using any language that best suits their function, however, this variability creates a target-rich environment for vulnerabilities. And scaling across multiple clusters and multiple public and private clouds presents many new operational and security-related challenges.
Securing Kubernetes-based applications is a daunting endeavor, but is not impossible to achieve. Applying layered security with a defense in depth strategy, making no assumptions about any traffic with a zero trust approach, and selecting a modern solution that can provide maximum visibility and control in a dynamic environment are the keys to success.
