Latest DevOps Trends

Whether you’re using Docker containers alone or orchestration with Kubernetes, security shouldn’t be the reason your DevOps team can’t experiment. Threat Stack is committed to helping DevOps innovate, securely.

Containers are just one piece of your infrastructure. The Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform® provides visibility into your containers, in the context of the rest of your infrastructure.

Understanding where container risk lies can be a challenge. Threat Stack’s team of experts can give you the guidance and support you need to take on container security.

Containers: Increased Attack Surface and Decreased Visibility

Containers have exploded in popularity, and many companies are still getting their arms around how to use them — much less secure them. While moving to containers can offer flexibility, cost savings, and lower operational complexity, it can also reduce visibility and increase your attack surface, especially as you move further from the host. Threat Stack helps you secure your infrastructure, giving you the same level of visibility — wherever your container strategy stands.

How Threat Stack for Containers Works

Monitor Your Infrastructure, Wherever Your Container Strategy Stands

As you move toward increasingly abstracted infrastructure, it can be challenging to maintain visibility. Threat Stack offers different deployment methods to give you complete infrastructure visibility.

Two Ways to Deploy. Complete Visibility Either Way.

Whichever method you choose, you only need to deploy one agent per host or node to gain visibility into all of your containers — saving you cycles and technical resource consumption.

Deploy Threat Stack on Your Host

Bake the Threat Stack agent into your Configuration Management Tool or Amazon Machine Image, so every server is automatically monitored when you spin it up.

Deploy Threat Stack as a Container

Increase security velocity without sacrificing visibility. Use the same deployment workflows by deploying Threat Stack as a container with the daemonsets you’re using today.

Gain Visibility into Both Containers and Underlying Infrastructure

Threat Stack helps secure your containerized environment by monitoring activity across both containers and the underlying host infrastructure. A lightweight agent sits on the host and sends activity data to the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform® for analysis. Threat Stack’s Docker integration also allows the agent to monitor container activity without requiring you to install additional agents inside your containers.


Follow the Path of Your Attacker Across Your Infrastructure

Threat Stack detects intrusions and risky insider behavior by combining multiple detection and assessment technologies across your infrastructure — then lets you see a timeline of activity. This means, if you see risky activity in a container, you’ll be able to trace the path of the attacker by viewing the activities that happened before and after, by user, IP, or server.

Learn More

With Threat Stack for Containers, you can:

  • Monitor the connections between containers to ensure that applications are secure
  • Know when new Docker images are pulled or run, by whom, and from where
  • Identify anomalous user, process, and file behaviors in containerized environments
  • Monitor for unauthorized changes to Docker configuration files

Lean on Our Container Expertise

As with any technology you implement, there are new security standards and best practices. Threat Stack offers a pre-built Docker ruleset, based on CIS’s standard set of benchmarks for best practices. Using this, you can quickly turn on monitoring for risky container activity, without having to figure out what's important and having to build custom controls.

Reduce Downstream Costs

Reduce Downstream Costs

It’s tempting to execute on your container strategy first and security second, but building security in from the get-go significantly reduces downstream costs and effort — especially when your organization has to face compliance or customer security requirements. By integrating security from the outset, your Security team can positively influence DevOps, so they can build workflows that meet everyone’s requirements.

See What Our Customers Say

Threat Stack can handle our rapid approach to deployment. We don’t deploy code to an existing server. Instead, we spin up a new microservice on a new server, go through the configuration management process, and tear down the old server. Threat Stack helps us throughout this process.
