Uptycs Unveils Advanced Container and Kubernetes Capabilities

Uptycs | May 27, 2022

Uptycs, the first cloud-native security analytics platform that enables both cloud and endpoint security from a single platform, today unveiled expanded container and Kubernetes security posture management (KSPM) features for its cloud workload protection platform (CWPP). These features enable real-time identification of containerized workloads, proactive scanning of container images in the CI/CD pipeline, constant compliance monitoring, and Kubernetes security policy audit and enforcement. According to Gartner, by 2026, over 90% of the world's enterprises will be operating containerized apps in production, up from less than 40% currently. Businesses, on the other hand, struggle to manage and maintain these transitory assets. Misconfigurations in the control plane and insecure policies at the single container layer are used by attackers to escalate permissions, conduct container escapes, and compromise nodes for executing code. "Organizations are rapidly scaling their Kubernetes environments and seeing tremendous gains in optimization, availability, and developer productivity, but too often Security teams are left playing catch up. With telemetry from Kubernetes systems supported by our analytics platform, Security teams know immediately what resources they have and the security posture of those resources—across public and private clouds, scaling to tens of thousands of pods. Combined with our industry-leading container security capabilities, this gives Security teams confidence that they have the proper controls in place to minimize risk while enabling innovation." Ganesh Pai, CEO and Co-founder of Uptycs Uptycs offers both fully managed (AWS EKS, Azure AKS, Google GKE) and self-managed Kubernetes environments, such as VMware Tanzu and Google Anthos. Uptycs contains a range of container runtimes (Docker, containerd, CRI-O). The latest KSPM capabilities offered by the Uptycs platform are now readily accessible and will be shown at the 2022 RSA Conference (booth #435) from June 6-9.
