StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform Updated
October 21, 2019

StackRox announced several new product features to the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform that expand its capabilities across multiple container and Kubernetes environments.

The latest StackRox updates enable controls for additional container operating systems and image registries, easier deployment via cloud marketplaces, native integrations with SIEM and incident management platforms, and support for the Istio service mesh.

The latest version of the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform now includes the following features and enhancements:

- eBPF instrumentation – StackRox delivers the option to collect system-level data at runtime using extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF), a native Linux in-kernel virtual machine for low-overhead data collection.

- Google Container-Optimized OS (GCOS) compatibility – With eBPF instrumentation, StackRox enhances runtime security controls for environments that use GCOS, the default operating system for Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).

- Azure Container Registry integration – StackRox includes a native integration for Microsoft Azure customers to discover and scan images in Kubernetes environments on Azure, including Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).

- AWS, GCP, and Red Hat OpenShift Marketplace availability – StackRox is available on all major cloud marketplaces, simplifying deployment and increasing flexibility for customers running on those providers. For GCP customers, StackRox is available as a Kubernetes application to enable deployment on GKE and Anthos.

- Splunk, Sumo Logic, and PagerDuty integrations – StackRox delivers native integrations for leading security information and event management (SIEM) and incident response solutions to easily send alerts and policy violation data directly to those platforms, streamlining operations and remediation.

- Istio coverage – StackRox provides visibility into Istio services and their network traffic, enabling organizations to apply policy controls on allowed connectivity in Kubernetes environments running Istio.

"To effectively operationalize security in cloud-native environments, organizations need security to be integrated across their existing toolchains and workflows," said Wei Lien Dang, co-founder and VP of Product at StackRox. "The new features in our latest release enable our customers to gain broader security coverage across their Kubernetes infrastructure and benefit from aligning insights from StackRox with the security tools they use every day."
