Application Visibility, Threat Detection, and Forensics: All the Security Your Kubernetes Needs

As the use of containers continues to rise in popularity within test and production environments, managing and orchestrating them becomes a bigger challenge. Despite that fact, Kubernetes (K8s) is a market leader in orchestrating cloud-native environments, it’s not as good at security as it is at orchestration. 

Lacework’s Kubernetes security solution provides comprehensive threat detection for dashboards, pods, management nodes, and clusters, in addition to end-to-end security for their public cloud infrastructure workloads, accounts, and containers. Our Kubernetes security platform identifies the risks and threats for Kubernetes-deployed infrastructures, 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

Lacework + Kubernetes Equals Security

The rapid adoption of Kubernetes for application and infrastructure orchestration is leading to an increase in the risk associated with data exposure and vulnerabilities throughout the application lifecycle. Without proper detection of threats, organizations could be opening the doors to unauthorized access to Kubernetes clusters, applications, and customer data.

Lacework provides deep visibility into your Kubernetes deployment. This includes high-level dashboards of your clusters, pods, nodes and namespaces combined with application-level communication between all of these at the application, process and network layer.

  • Backed by the power of Lacework’s Polygraph technology, this security solution for Kubernetes includes detection of both risks and threats that may be specifically designed to breach a vulnerability within Kubernetes, a possible miss-configuration or a threat that can affect your infrastructure by installing malicious code onto one of your containers. 
  • The Lacework Polygraph is designed to detect both known and unknown threats that affect Kubernetes environments using behavioral analysis and machine learning.
  • Lacework’s Kubernetes security solution creates hourly Polygraphs that can demonstrate any change of relationships or events over time. This is a critical tool for understanding and triaging security incidents.

Whether you are triaging an alert or digging into deep details around the cause and effect of a change, Lacework’s security platform for Kubernetes has all the information. Our SaaS service allows you to go back in time and look at all related events across your Kubernetes infrastructure that may have caused a breach or exposed you to an unknown risk.

Detailed information about your containers, applications, and infrastructure are all available. They include information related to Kubernetes such as pods, nodes, labels, namespaces, and all network information. And all this information is available both within the UI and from our API.

Threat Detection for Kubernetes

Backed by the power of Lacework’s Polygraph technology, this security solution for Kubernetes includes detection of both risks and threats that may be specifically designed to breach a vulnerability within Kubernetes, a possible miss-configuration, or a threat that can affect your infrastructure by installing malicious code onto one of your containers. The Lacework Polygraph is designed to detect both known and unknown threats that affect Kubernetes environments through the detection of IOC’s and Lacework’s behavioral analysis and machine learning classification.

Risks and threats are visible within the Lacework dashboard, are ranked by risk severity, and can be delivered through the most common modern methods such as a Slack channel or a Jira ticket.
