Continuous Kubernetes Security
Through Your CI/CD Pipeline

Start Putting Your K8s Security to Work.

As a DevOps, you need to focus on your application instead of your Kubernetes risks and configuration.

This means that your Kubernetes security needs to start working for you and not the other way around. Ensuring a secured software supply chain from hygiene drift and doing cluster hardening are top priorities for any organization and with Alcide, this can be done through your CI+CD pipeline.

Let’s explain it with this scenario:

Before Alcide: A DevOps commits to git a new Kubernetes deployment that represents a Microservice -> The added deployment contains a reference to an image from an unauthorized location such as Docker hub -> The build pipeline starts to run and ends up deploying to a certain environment. How can you detect that drift in the cluster hygiene level and specifics in the software supply chain hygiene? How can you ensure that the bad build fails before moving to Production?

With Alcide: A DevOps commits to git a new Kubernetes deployment that represents a Microservice -> The added deployment contains a reference to an image from an unauthorized location such as Docker hub -> The build pipeline starts to run and ends up deploying to a certain environment -> Alcide Kubernetes Advisor scans in the target environment and detects the drift in the cluster and specifics in the software supply chain -> End result: pipeline fails, Jira case is routed back to the engineering team!

Integrated with the CI+CD pipeline, Alcide Kuberentes Advisor provides on-going insights and recommendation for security drifts detected in the Development stage, before being exploited in Runtime. Make sure that tainted CI+CD deployments are identified on time. Check out the available integrations for the Alcide Advisor on GitHub and test-drive it for free for 30-day.
