For security, DevOps, and infrastructure teams, the NeuVector continuous container security and compliance platform simplifies data protection from pipeline to production, enforces compliance, and provides visibility and automated controls to combat known and unknown threats.
Protect your web application by using advanced runtime container security
In this code pattern, you set up a cloud-native container firewall for either a Kubernetes or Red Hat OpenShift cluster and configure security policies to detect and prevent several types of malicious attacks. Then, you test a vulnerable web application sample to monitor and analyze the generated alerts, explained by NeuVector VP of Product Management Glen Kosaka.
NeuVector Adds K8s Assessment Tool to Container Security Platform
NeuVector today announced it has added a configuration posture management and deployment assessment tool for Kubernetes resources to its namesake container security platform.
Glen Kosaka, vice president of product management for NeuVector, says this scanning tool enables IT and security teams to immediately identify compliance issues within Kubernetes resources and then automatically apply admission control policies. Scan results evaluate YAML files against built-in best practices for secure deployments and/or against custom admission control rules that have been created by an internal IT team.
Is Your Kubernetes Network Security Strategy Solid?
The aftermath of a security incident is the worst time to realize that your Kubernetes protections weren’t good enough. When thorough Kubernetes security measures are in place, potential threats are detected and remediated before they can do harm, explained by NeuVector Co-Founder and CTO Gary Duan.

15 Point Kubernetes Security Checklist
Thoroughly securing containers and Kubernetes environments – especially in production where they’re most vulnerable – requires a layered security strategy with consistent vigilance across multiple fronts. Kubernetes itself has become an increasingly (and concerningly) frequent attack surface, with attackers exploiting critical vulnerabilities to interfere with or infiltrate containers at every stage of the pipeline.

Why Securing Secrets in Cloud and Container Environments Is Important – and How to Do It
Key-based “secrets” are required to authorize access and communications across all cloud applications and services, including login access to containerized applications. From the AWS IAM access key, to Google API access token, Facebook access token, OAuth Client Secrets, and countless others, secrets are used to secure myriad public-facing services and internal or external REST APIs.
Deploying compliance and security automation with Kubernetes
Enterprises believe that orchestration and containerization will help with compliance and security as they make the shift to digital transformation. CIOs are opting to shift security as closer to the CI/CD pipeline or software development cycle as possible. Kubernetes and Containers need new or updated security requirements. Such solutions provoke enterprises to shift legacy security policies away from the waterfall or monolithic approach. In most of these approaches, security comes as the last priority.
Why DevOps Teams Need to Take Container Security Seriously
Earlier this year hackers were able to exploit container platform Kubernetes to install cryptomining software in Microsoft Azure. Fei Huang, chief strategy officer at container security platform NeuVector believes that this should be a wake up call to get the attention of enterprise DevOps and DevSecOps teams. We spoke to him to find out more about the risks and how they can be addressed.
6 Kubernetes workflows and processes you can automate
Once upon a time, the concept of “workflow” in Kubernetes might have seemed a bit antithetical. Consider this older definition from the business process management world, via Wikipedia: “A workflow consists of an orchestrated and repeatable pattern of activity, enabled by the systematic organization of resources into processes that transform materials, provide services, or process information.”
How To Match Kubernetes Security To HIPAA Compliance
Healthcare organizations under the purview of HIPAA regulations know full well how critical demonstrable security is to avoiding regulatory action, steep fines, and reputational harm. But many businesses now taking advantage of Kubernetes and containerized environments have even more questions than usual when it comes to implementing compliance-achieving security processes.

Kubernetes pipelines face an ever-increasing range of threats that demand more integrated and automated security across the application lifecycle. Making things more complex, critical vulnerabilities can make their way into any stage of the pipeline: from build to registry to test-and-staging to (especially damaging) production environments.
Kubernetes deployments: 6 security best practices
If you’re moving to containers and Kubernetes from a more monolithic approach to software development and infrastructure, it’s probably not because you want your teams to move slower. You’re likely trying to deploy faster and more frequently than ever.
Guide to Automating Container Security Scans in the CI/CD Pipeline for DevOps Teams
As threat vectors and micro-perimeters expand with the popularity of container deployments, an automated approach can help DevSecOps teams keep workflows secure. Container security, including vulnerability management, has long been a challenge for many DevOps teams. The challenge is that, while modern cloud-native tools have enabled automation across CI/CD pipelines, automating the vulnerability management process has lagged behind.

10 Steps to Ensure PCI DSS-Compliant Container Deployment
Enterprises seeking to leverage containers and microservices in compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) will find some advantageous synergies between the regulations and the technologies, as well as some aspects that require particularly careful attention. While PCI-DSS version 3.2, the industry’s latest, does not yet specifically address containerized environments, enterprises must nevertheless ensure that appropriate monitoring, security and governance is in place to achieve compliance. This is especially important, as recent reports are showing a struggle to maintain compliance.

6 Security Team Goals for DevSecOps in 2020
In the DevOps world, the biggest gains have been achieved through an "everything-as-code" approach that has made it so much easier to spin up and down reliable, repeatable infrastructure components. In the future this could be a huge boon for security and compliance purposes, but right now there's a big gap between DevOps and security teams, says Tim Hinrichs, CTO and co-founder of Styra.
The Year Ahead for Kubernetes and Container Security - Security Boulevard
A new study out conducted among the DevSecOps community shows that Kubernetes use is rapidly growing within the enterprise, and not just within test or development environments. As organizations try to catch their breath with the rapid adoption rate, the security community is scrambling to adapt to containers and cloud native architectures as the new normal.
How to Automate Container Security by Using CRDs to Get Security Policy as Code
Security has long been a sticking point for many DevOps teams (including my own, at a Canadian insurance and financial services co-operative). While available tools have enabled automation across plenty of other parts of our CI/CD pipeline — and made automated deployment of our container-based applications the norm — security automation has largely lagged behind.
