Container Self-Protection

Cloud native workloads demand cloud native security that can remain in step with DevOps. With everything automated to enable the CI/CD process it is critical that container security is automated, to ensure least privileged access and to maintain security compliance.

CloudGuard’s Container Security solution includes the ShiftLeft tool to empower DevOps to create Kubernetes containers that are automatically secure. CloudGuard provides posture management & visibility across the entire container environment, as well as container image assurance from the build to the registry, and through runtime. CloudGuard also provides an admissions controller which allows DevSecOps to easily set security policies and guardrails for cluster operations.

As part of CloudGuard’s unified approach to Workload Protection, the solution powers application-first container security, with the additional capabilities of K8s native web application & API protection.

Why CloudGuard for Container Security

K8 Posture

  • Posture Management & Visibility to understand at a glance what’s running in your environment and how it’s configured.
  • Image Assurance to ensure security posture without impacting DevOps, using CI tools to prevent deployment of non-secure images.
  • Admission Controller to govern all cluster operations. Set policies & guardrails and enforce least privileged access rights across K8s.
  • Runtime Protection for active container threat prevention. Detect & block incidents in real time across the entire container lifecycle.
  • Intrusion Detection identifies malicious behavior by automatically analysing account activity, cluster operations & app traffic flow.

Container Security Use Cases

Image Security Scanning

CloudGuard integrates into the CI/CD pipeline where it builds the container images and continuously runs securing scans, searching for vulnerabilities. If a vulnerability is found, the information is sent to the CLI tool along with the recommended remediation steps. If other issues are found, CloudGuard will stop the pipeline build with outlined remediation steps before they get to the production environment.

Credential Exposure

CloudGuard checks for exposed credentials and sensitive content inside the container prior to production.  If hardcoded credentials or vulnerabilities are found, CloudGuard will stop the development pipeline and provide the necessary remediation steps.

Integrated Container Security

By integrating CloudGuard container security into the CI/CD pipeline, the container images are automatically scanned for vulnerabilities, malware, weak security practices, and exposed credentials before they become major issues. CloudGuard will provide remediation steps in the event that an issue is found so DevSec teams can act quickly and not slow down the development cycle.
