Company continues leadership in Container Network Security and sees dramatic increase in number of container hosts protected
San Jose, CA – January 17, 2019 – NeuVector, the leader in container network security, today announced significant growth in 2018, including a 270 percent increase in its customer base year-over-year. The increases were seen across all regions, and were positively impacted by a September 2018 partnership with Alibaba Cloud, announced here. With this increase in customer base, the company saw a dramatic increase in the number of container hosts protected – a nearly 700 percent increase in just six months. During the year, NeuVector continued to innovate in core IP related to container network security and filed three additional patent applications.
Growth in Containers Moving to Production
NeuVector’s growth continues to track the overall trajectory of the container market. In 2018, containers widely moved from development environments into mainstream, enterprise cloud deployments. As containers are deployed, network security and scalability become critical considerations – both areas where NeuVector excels over competitive solutions.
“NeuVector is the only solution capable of deep packet interrogation and enforcement, which is critical to container network security. In production deployments, containers must be protected from attacks across all network vectors and this protection must scale accordingly,” said Fei Huang, CEO and co-founder of NeuVector. “Our dramatic increase in hosts protected over the past six months is a reflection of NeuVector’s scalability and ability to protect containers at the network level. As we move into 2019, we are seeing demand accelerate across all of our regions: North America, EMEA and Asia.
Technology Expertise from Gartner
In August of 2018, Gartner published research recommending, “Use secrets management and software component analysis as primary container protection strategies. Add Layer 7 network segmentation for operational containers that require defense in depth.” (Gartner Report: Container Security – From Image Analysis to Network Segmentation, Options Are Maturing 28 August 2018.)
“NeuVector addresses the four basic requirements for container network security,” said Huang. “These are comprehensive Layer 7 protocol coverage, live network visualization, automated packet capture, and traffic reporting.”
Customer Perspective: Strongest Player in Kubernetes Security
“NeuVector is the strongest player in the nascent Kubernetes security market, giving us the ability to both monitor and visualize the network traffic we’re generating, plus a complete static analysis offering for our container base layers,” said Sean McCormick, vice president of engineering, Element Analytics. “By using NeuVector’s end-to-end container security solution, I’m confident we’re detecting attacks from both malicious containers containing injected vulnerabilities – which are becoming all too common these days – and from more traditional intrusion vectors.”
NeuVector, the leader in Container Network Security, protects Kubernetes in production. NeuVector delivers highly integrated, automated security and is the only next generation container firewall with packet-level interrogation and enforcement.
