Picus Security Launches Security Validation for Kubernetes
May 28, 2024

Picus Security announced security validation for Kubernetes.

This new capability allows Security and DevOps teams to realize the benefits of containers securely by proactively measuring and optimizing the resilience of clusters. It is the latest innovative addition to the Picus Security Validation Platform, which empowers users to consistently validate their security posture and measure risk across on-premises and multi-cloud environments.

The addition of Kubernetes validation extends the Picus platform's existing validation capabilities, which are powered by attack simulation and GenAI. It enables organizations to proactively identify and mitigate security misconfigurations, such as weak policies and settings that could allow containers to run with insecure privileges and facilitate lateral movement. Now security teams can automatically assess the security of their workloads wherever they are located - on-premises, in containers, and also in cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.

"Cloud security is perhaps the biggest barrier of entry for organizations that want to take advantage of container orchestration," said Volkan Erturk, Picus CTO and Co-Founder. "Kubernetes offers incredible opportunities for DevOps teams to deploy and scale new applications, but Security teams can struggle to keep pace. "With the Picus Security Validation Platform, security concerns won't slow down an organization's digital transformation journey. This new offering will allow our users to consistently measure the security of their workloads and vastly reduce the effort needed to address exposures across growing IT environments."
