Kubernetes enable organizations to automate application deployment providing massive business benefits. The deployments could be vulnerable to exploits and threats from hackers or dangers within the traditional environment making Kubernetes security an inevitable component for deployments. Hackers not only launch attacks on containers but also on tools like Kubernetes.

The security challenges that originate from the containers are:

  • Traffic across geographies: Containers are deployed across clouds and hosts, increasing the traffic across all geographical regions making it crucial to be monitored
  • Surface threat: Every container has its own vulnerability, which are exploited easily alongside the threat from the tools
  • Keeping in pace: Traditional security tools and methods may not be able to keep up with the pace of constantly changing environment

To access the container security during its run time, it is inevitable to ensure

  • How the pods and clusters communicate
  • Visibility on deployments
  • Where to detect errors in traffic
  • If there is any potential exploits in pod or container
  • Whether you have reviewed access to the clusters to check internal attacks

The security management should automate the process to refrain from slowing down the DevOps workflow. You can do this by shortening security approvals for development team, simplifying alert and monitoring process and fragmenting containers/networks.

At Aspire, we are conducting a webinar on “Securing and Monitoring Microservices Application in Kubernetes – Do’s and Don’ts“ that answers your doubts and provides clarity on how you can handle situations concerning security in Kubernetes. Our webinar aims at helping enterprises and other organizations to implement Kubernetes through few best practices for great scalability and modularity.

Our session provides you the following insights on security and monitoring:

  • Key elements of security in Kubernetes from CI and CD perspective
  • Factors to be considered to ensure Security for an End-to-End Kubernetes Implementation
  • Ways to Monitor Kubernetes Infrastructure and Applications
  • Demo of Kubernetes monitoring using ELK

The growing interest of the IT sectors in deploying Kubernetes has kindled the hacker’s interest in compromising security. It is vitally important to upgrade the security system as the technology grows. In order to prevent any huge data breach and to overcome threats, you need to secure your system in the right way. To explore security and monitoring aspect of Kubernetes and reap high benefits in business, register for our webinar now!
