Alcide Advisor Introduced
May 15, 2019

Alcide releaseed Alcide Advisor, a continuous security and hygiene scanner for Kubernetes and Istio, which automatically scans for the widest range of compliance, security and governance risks and vulnerabilities.

Already deployed in numerous customer environments, and fully integrated with the CI/CD pipeline, it empowers engineering teams to maintain engineering motion and quickly identify security drifts and risks, even before they are introduced to production. This K8s and Istio advisory continuously scan across the various development stages all the way into production.

The complexity of cloud-native and Kubernetes deployments mandates continuous security capabilities that offer ongoing insights and actionable recommendations to ensure always-on security of deployed applications. Enabling DevOps with a ‘click & run’ experience, Alcide Advisor helps them ramp up their K8s migration and adoption quickly, without compromising on security.

With Alcide Advisor engineering teams can rest assured that the apps they build are deployed and monitored in a secure manner; while DevOps teams benefit from a fast, automated and secured deployments; and cloud architects can stay on top of every change, risk or new user introduced to the system.

“DevOps pushes adoption of cloud-native application technology today, with K8s being a driving force,” says Gadi Naor, co-founder and CTO of Alcide. “By combining the worlds of DevOps with Kubernetes security, these teams can now leverage the agility, speed, security and scale of cloud-native development, without sacrificing security, development flexibility or business velocity. It’s a win-win for Dev, Sec and Ops.”

The Alcide Advisor provides a single-pane view for all K8s- related risk, governance and compliance issues, including auditing, topology, network, policies scans, and automated common vulnerabilities and exposure checks. Fully integrated with the CI/CD pipeline, the comprehensive monitoring by the Advisor enables DevOps teams to gain a deeper understanding and tighter control of their distributed and complex Kubernetes projects with a continuous, always-on, dynamic analysis covering:

- Kubernetes Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmark

- Kubernetes vulnerability scanning

- Hunting misplaced secrets, or excessive secret access

- Workload hardening from Pod Security to network policies

- Ingress controllers for security best practices

- Kubernetes API server access privileges

- Kubernetes security best practices on AWS

- Kubernetes operators security best practices

- Istio security configuration and best practices
