Every day, malicious actors are taking more complex routes into cloud infrastructure and leveraging increasingly covert traits to persist for longer periods of time. As Dark Reading put it in a recent article, “Attackers are abusing the characteristics of cloud services to launch and hide their activity as they traverse target networks.” With the rapid adoption of containers and orchestration tools as part of that infrastructure, organizations are presented with yet another layer to protect from these complex attacks.
Containers bring many advantages to DevOps such as easier write-test-deploy cycles, flexibility to explore new frameworks, and a simpler way to make updates to individual resources or a range of components in your applications. As more teams move towards containerized workloads, DevOps teams expect the security tools they leverage to keep pace without slowing them down.
To ensure alignment with those expectations, Threat Stack is excited to announce a containerized agent that will be available to customers next month. The containerized agent will provide the deployment and velocity benefits of containerization while concurrently monitoring and alerting on container activity across the entire infrastructure, no matter where customers fall on the container adoption spectrum.
