Getting Control of
Kubernetes Security

Planning, Configuring,
and Securing Kubernetes Clusters

Kubernetes is considered today as the de facto orchestration tool for managing and deploying containers and has become the ideal system for building and operating cloud-native applications.

Protect your Kubernetes lifecycle: Alcide’s native integration with Kubernetes enables organizations to ensure their Kubernetes workloads are continuously scanned, monitored, and properly secured.

Your entire Kubernetes pipeline is secured from code-to-production using real-time Kubernetes containers and pods activities visualization and enforcement mechanisms.

 

RBAC Authorization & Authentication

RBAC enables your clusters to maintain the principle of least privileges – running workloads, pods & microservices, in general, must be able to access only the information and resources that are necessary for its legitimate purpose, and nothing else beyond.

How Can You Start with Kubernetes?

Alcide's platform secures the Kuberentes lifecycle at scale

The Actions You Should Take

Scan the Kubernetes cluster configuration file for security drifts and misconfigurations.

The Result offers a better understanding and control of distributed and complex Kubernetes projects with a continuous and dynamic analysis.

 

Monitor Kubernetes Network Policies and see how they are layered on top of the Security Groups, enabling policies to be easily tuned and refined through application labeling and apply them to the relevant tier in the organization.

Control who can access the Kubernetes API server at the network level and segment the cluster worker nodes

alcide in action

Start as early as your build by using Alcide Kubernetes Advisor — an agentless Kubernetes audit, compliance, and hygiene scanner built to ensure a frictionless and secured DevSecOps workflows. Alcide Advisor can be plugged early in the development process and before moving to production. The Alcide platform then helps to gather, monitor and manage all your rule-based instance policies while providing a high-level picture and granular policy details to help users ensure the right policies are set to protect your Kubernetes workloads.

With Alcide, Kubernetes Network Policies are automatically imported and visualized on the connectivity map, enabling implementation of network segmentation, reducing complexity, and minimizing the need to manage policies through the Kubernetes native CLI.

Kubernetes Advisor: Continuous Audit & Compliance

The Alcide Advisor is a Continuous Kubernetes and Istio hygiene checks tool that provides a single-pane view for all your K8s-related issues, including audits, compliance, topology, networks, policies, and threats. This ensures that you get a better understanding and control of distributed and complex Kubernetes projects with a continuous and dynamic analysis. A partial list of the checks we run includes:

  • Kubernetes vulnerability scanning
  • Hunting misplaced secrets, or excessive secret access
  • Workload hardening from Pod Security to network policies
  • Istio security configuration and best practices
