Lacework Announces Kubernetes Support in End-to-End Cloud Security Platform

Lacework, the industry's first solution to bring automation, speed, and scale to cloud security, announced support for Kubernetes container orchestration. With this update to the product, Lacework customers will now have comprehensive threat detection for Kubernetes dashboards, pods, management nodes, and clusters, in addition to end-to-end security for their public cloud infrastructure workloads, accounts, and containers.

With the rapid adoption of Kubernetes for application and infrastructure orchestration, there's a corresponding increase in the risk associated with data exposure and vulnerabilities throughout the application lifecycle. Without proper detection of threats, organizations could unwittingly be granting unauthorized access to Kubernetes clusters, applications, and customer data. Lacework identifies the risks and threats for Kubernetes-deployed infrastructure, including publicly exposed and unsecured API servers and management consoles.

Lacework was among the first cloud security vendors to highlight the need for rigorous container security. The company's original research was published earlier this year in a report titled, Containers at Risk: A Review of 21,000 Cloud Environments. Some of Lacework's customers, like Fintonic, have already started using Lacework as a critical component of their cloud security. 

"Fintonic is increasingly using Kubernetes for our container orchestration, which is helping us build and deliver applications faster," said Javier Tobal, Chief Information Security Officer at Fintonic. "Lacework's support of Kubernetes gives us threat detection across all of our container workloads so we can identify security issues rapidly and address them before they become a problem."

"With the addition of Kubernetes support, we're now able to provide our customers with the necessary visibility, analysis, and understanding of their infrastructure orchestration," said Dan Hubbard, chief product officer at Lacework. "Organizations can be empowered to continue to build and deploy apps to meet business needs, while still remaining vigilant about their cloud environments."
