Kubernetes’ powerful facilities for deploying and managing containerized applications across multiclouds introduce complex security challenges including cluster configuration and vulnerability management, network security, role-based access control (RBAC), secrets management and runtime security. The Ermetic CNAPP provides a detailed inventory of the resources inside all Kubernetes clusters, performs continuous posture assessment and prioritization of risks, and offers guided how-tos and workflow integrations to accelerate remediation.

“Existing approaches to Kubernetes security typically provide a siloed view, which results in high false positive rates,” said Sivan Krigsman, Chief Product Officer for Ermetic. “By combining Kubernetes security posture management with our full stack cloud native application protection capabilities we provide unprecedented visibility and context, for accurate risk prioritization and remediation.”

Comprehensive Visibility and Control
To provide full and accurate visibility into Kubernetes resources, Ermetic queries the Kubernetes API for each cluster, and uses agentless scanning and analysis of node configurations and containers. These findings, when coupled with intelligence from Ermetic’s CWP, IaC scans, CSPM and CIEM capabilities, enables customers to:

Get a detailed inventory of Kubernetes resources within clusters
Detect misconfigurations and vulnerabilities, and access detailed, step-by-step remediation instructions
Prioritize workload vulnerabilities within the context of cloud configuration, permissions, network access, and more
Enforce least privilege for users and services using the internal Kubernetes role based access control (RBAC) mechanism
Assess and enforce compliance standards for Kubernetes clusters such as CIS benchmarks
The new Kubernetes security posture management (KSPM) capabilities are available immediately in the Ermetic CNAPP, from Ermetic and its business partners worldwide.
