Cloud and Kubernetes – Removing the Kubernetes Security Blind Spots

Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) and Cloud Workload Protection Platforms (CWPP) are foundations for good cloud security, but with more and more organizations adopting microservices and Kubernetes orchestration using cloud and hybrid cloud infrastructure, they are unwittingly expanding their significant attack surface.

In this paper, we explore:
• Why Kubernetes security can leave blind spots and why eliminating them is not as simple as implementing solutions that have become the standard for cloud security – CSPM and CWPP.
• Why deep visibility and control are the linchpins of protecting modern cloud infrastructure, inclusive of Kubernetes.
• Why comprehensive Kubernetes security requires holistic security and posture management for the entire cloud stack, including configuration management, identity and access management (IAM), infrastructure as code (IaC), and compliance management.
