CloudPassage Debuts Container Secure

CloudPassage today announced the release of Container Secure, a broad set of automated compliance and security controls for containers. Container Secure is the only solution currently on the market that secures all three parts of container environments: container images, running containers and the container engine/host. The solution, which will come packaged as a piece of the CloudPassage Halo platform, ensures a monitored and secured containerized operating environment for enterprises. Container Secure covers five key elements essential to container security: host security, continuous image assurance, configuration assessment, visibility and compliance, and DevOps ecosystem integration.

Containers represent another step in the evolution toward faster application development and delivery. Container adoption at the enterprise level has skyrocketed in recent years due to the ability of containers to provide faster application development and deployment. In the 2017 edition of the Portworx Annual Container Adoption survey, 32 percent of responding companies spent $500,000 or more per year on license and usage fees for container technologies, up from a reported five percent in 2016. Industry experts expect container adoption to continue to grow in the coming years.

"Containers are exploding in popularity because they're fast and efficient. The rapid adoption of containers has created a strategic imperative to secure containers during build-time, before they are deployed into production, and then during run-time." said Doug Cahill, senior analyst, ESG. "With Container Secure, CloudPassage is providing robust automated security for every stage and level of container applications expanding protection across workload types for unified host-based security."

CloudPassage Halo set the standard for cloud workload protection platforms, automating the security of virtual machines (VMs) and hosts across private cloud, public cloud, and data center environments for the Fortune 1000. With Container Secure, CloudPassage will provide the same efficient, automated security for VMs, hosts, and containers, allowing enterprises security and visibility from a single platform and agent.

"CloudPassage Halo was purpose-built for highly automated application development and deployment environments," said Amit Gupta, vice president of product, CloudPassage. "Today, Halo is employed by leading digital enterprises deploying virtual machines across clouds and servers at speed and scale. With the rapid adoption of containers, the need for a single security and compliance platform that can protect both hosts and containers has become a critical ask from our customers, and we are now able to deliver with Container Secure."  

CloudPassage began beta testing for Container Secure earlier in 2017.
