Kubernetes Security


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title


On Demand

Kubernetes security is becoming more challenging as the number of clusters running cloud-native applications continues to multiply rapidly. Challenges range from allowing in only legitimate traffic and enabling least-privileged communications between services to defend against attacks moving laterally between clusters, to validating how a workload is operating within the expected guardrails.

It’s also often assumed that because a container only runs for a few seconds on a Kubernetes cluster, it won’t be compromised. However, containers are starting to run for longer periods and are being used with stateful applications containing sensitive data. Organizations also are paying more attention to Kubernetes as they look to lock down software supply chains in the wake of a series of high-profile breaches.

As Kubernetes becomes ever-present in production environments, it is imperative that organizations understand and take appropriate steps against the threats. In this editorial webinar, our panel of experts will discuss:

  • The state of Kubernetes security
  • What organizations need to address with respect to Kubernetes security in production environments
  • Who should be in charge of Kubernetes security in the age of shift-left
