Cloud containers have become of the most important technologies for modern IT infrastructures. This also introduces new security concerns. The flexibility that makes containers so useful for developers also poses a security challenge. In each container there are many different and individually complex components, which can all bring security risks and vulnerabilities with them.
Container Security is the process of implementing security tools and policies that give you the assurance that all your containers behave as intended. It is an ongoing process that should be integrated into the development process, automated and extended to the maintenance and operation of the underlying infrastructure. This means protecting build pipelines, container images, the runtime host and the application layers as well.
The most important security aspects are:
- Container host security
- Network traffic of the container
- Security of the application in the container
- Malicious behavior in the application
- Security of the Container Management Stack
- Security of the underlying images
- Integrity of the Build Pipeline
Asecus helps you to secure the containers from the concept phase to the implementation.
