Alcide Delivers Its Strategic Kubernetes Solution Across EKS, AKS, and GKE Managed Kubernetes Services to Snowflake

Alcide announced that they will be providing Snowflake with cloud-native security for Snowflake Kubernetes deployments. Built on Kubernetes managed services, this Snowflake initiative seeks to disrupt the siloed ways businesses share data or combine external data with their own data by enabling data collaboration via Snowflake Data Marketplace.

"Snowflake started its Kubernetes journey," Snowflake Senior Manager of Product Security, Jacob Salassi said. "We needed to make sure that we had the right Kubernetes security posture in place, and the ability to continuously monitor it in AWS, GCP and Azure."

Snowflake needed a solution to consolidate security, visualization, and Ops into a single location and increase efficiency serving all stakeholders. To accomplish this, Snowflake selected the Alcide Security Platform to grant security teams access to Kubernetes environments without disrupting Ops, and to support different cloud policies and configurations for Snowflake's growing and multiple cloud environments.

Alcide Kubernetes Advisor will be integrated with Snowflake's security stack to protect their customers' most sensitive data. Alcide Advisor will monitor Kubernetes clusters and supply visualizations of applications and infrastructure. Alcide kART and kAudit will follow and provide protection of workloads as well as security intelligence for investigation and compliance auditing in runtime. 

"Our aim has always been to help Security and DevOps teams work together enabling them with ongoing alerting of insecure changes in their Kubernetes environments or when they are under cyber-attacks," says Amir Ofek, CEO of Alcide. "We help global companies such as Snowflake increase business velocity and efficiency by increasing security confidence during deployment and runtime in a seamless and undisrupted manner."

Snowflake has already begun implementing Alcide in their security stack. Alcide's SaaS Platform enables companies to deploy Alcide's product rapidly without invasive modifications to their CI/CD pipeline or disruption of DevOps.
