Is Kubernetes completely secure? Is there an ever-growing need for more container security companies?
The scale of container deployment has rapidly increased in 2018. As the quantity of deployments increase, so does the demand for security.
Both conferences KubeCon and CNCF in Seattle chose to outline some of the wider security problem implications for Kubernetes.
The changing of times has meant that the conversation around container deployment has shifted. Before the focus revolved around the ability to control deployment, whereas now we enter a new era in which deployment by scale is more significant.
“This approach also takes into account the breadth of different security models that organisations run. That doesn’t mean security has to be weak but implementing very high security across all projects creates an impossible bar for developers. For containers and the low-code, no-code environments, it also means that developing and deploying code becomes incredibly difficult. End user assembly of components to create new software cannot happen if security is pushed out to the developers. Secure frameworks appear to offer a great solution all round”
This is just one of the benefits of having security by design.
As new technologies come to market, with the primary intention to improve business processes, they also carry security issues that need to be addressed.
Kubesec is trying to address this issue now for companies that have selected to use Kubernetes as their main tool for orchestration.
With so few container security companies out there, Kubesec stand out by addressing some of the issues and aiming to provide security options now as oppose to further down the line when the container market has increased
