The use of Kubernetes is growing substantively. With 96 percent of organizations using or evaluating the technology [1]. Your organization probably uses a Kubernetes (K8S) solution to manage some of your applications already.

This open source platform has become incredibly popular to automate deployment, scaling, and management of applications. However, the complexity of the Kubernetes setup can lead to major cybersecurity risks.


Your Challenges with Kubernetes

  • Kubernetes is complex to setup due to a wide variety of components and an open by default configuration. System Administrators aren't always aware of the security risks within a Kubernetes cluster or the underlying infrastructure. Our team published the Top 10 Kubernetes Findings.
  • If cyber criminals manage to get access, the consequences can be enormous. Because Kubernetes is at the heart of your business running critical applications. Also, pods running essential business applications can be an access point for cyber criminals.
  • The risk of an overly permissive configuration. Because standard out-of-the-box Kubernetes is open by design.
