Container Security 101 UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS OF SECURING CONTAINERS

Thumb original prisma container security101

By now it’s apparent to cybersecurity teams everywhere that the proverbial container genie is out of the bottle. Developers have widely embraced containers because they make building and deploying so- called cloud native applications simpler than ever. Not only do containers eliminate much of the friction typically associated with moving application code from testing through to production, application code packaged up as containers can also run anywhere. All the dependencies associated with any application are included within the containerized application. That makes a containerized application highly portable across virtual machines or bare metal servers running in a local data center or on a public cloud.

That level of flexibility enables developers to make huge gains in productivity that are too great to ignore. However, as is the case with the rise of any new IT architecture, cloud native applications still need to be secured. Container environments bring with them a range of cybersecurity issues involving images, containers, hosts, runtimes, registries, and orchestration platforms, which all need to be secured.

It becomes even more difficult to make apples-to-apples comparisons when vendors don’t publish complete specifications or standards-based performance metrics. Amid the pressing need to thwart increasing SSL-based attacks without hampering the pace of business, secu ...

A Multi-cloud IT Infrastructure Demands 3 Key Requirements from Networking and Security

More than 90 percent of enterprises are adopting a multi-cloud strategy, and as they expand across multiple Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud providers, their networking and security architectures must evolve. Specifically, enterprises are seeking a simplified and consistent way to connect their applications and workloads, improve the application experience for their users, streamline operations and costs with automation, increase their visibility into traffic patterns, and effectively apply consistent controls to reduce cybersecurity ri ...

What to Look for in a Secure SD-WAN Solution for Multi-Cloud Environments

Cloud adoption is becoming an increasingly large part of CIO budgets, to the point where some enterprise organizations are using many different cloud environments to build their IT infrastructure. A multi-cloud model involves the custom selection of multiple cloud services to serve specific functions. Enterprises today have almost entirely embraced multi-cloud for its flexibility—93% currently have a multi-cloud strategy in place. However, connecting workloads on multiple clouds at the data-center WAN edge creates several challenges, including ...
