The NeuVector Multi-Vector Container Firewall Enables IBM Cloud Customers to Deploy Kubernetes with Confidence
IBM Cloud Container Service combines Docker and Kubernetes to deliver powerful tools, an intuitive user experience, and built-in security and isolation to enable rapid delivery of applications all while leveraging Cloud Services including cognitive capabilities from Watson. NeuVector provides a unique run-time security automation solution for IBM Cloud to fully secure Kubernetes environments. The solution delivers a true Layer 7 container firewall with east-west traffic visibility combined with container process monitoring and vulnerability scanning.
The deployment automation enabled by Kubernetes comes with security challenges caused by low visibility into the constantly changing east-west communication traffic within the Kubernetes environment. Traditional security solutions cannot detect threats and container attacks across several fronts, from vulnerability exploits to privilege escalation to sophisticated insider attacks. Image scanning and hardening are equally insufficient to protect these environments in run-time, as unknown vulnerabilities, zero-day and insider attacks can – and will – evade their protections.
The NeuVector solution available to IBM Cloud customers is designed to safeguard networks, containers, and hosts on the IBM Cloud Container Service with multi-vector threat detection. Learn more about how NeuVector secures containerized environments on IBM Cloud here.
“Our customers are on a journey to the cloud – whether it’s cloud-native app development or the modernization of existing apps by repackaging to run in the cloud. As their usage of containers and microservices increases, it becomes apparent quickly that traditional solutions and tooling for monitoring, logging, and (especially) security are not sufficient for these new technologies. IBM is excited about the partnership with NeuVector and our ability to bring run-time visibility and security for Kubernetes and Docker to IBM Cloud Container Service. NeuVector deploys seamlessly in our native Kubernetes clusters providing container behavioral learning and cloud-native integration to automate security enforcement for our customers.”
