Risks Hiding in a Sea of Containers
DevOps teams across enterprises are embracing Docker and containerization to develop, test, and deploy modern, distributed applications with increased speed and agility without the need of a heavy hypervisor and virtual machines for every task. Containers allow unprecedented speed for rapidly iterating but also pose completely new security and visibility problems. Security organizations will need to respond to the challenge of securing this infrastructure – without breaking the key benefits that containers bring.
Securing architecture based on microservices requires a layered approach, where the inherent strengths of the isolation model of containers are complemented by appropriate security measures at each layer beneath them – including the VM OSs on which the Docker Engines are running as well as the host OS at the bottom of the stack.
How CloudPassage can Help
CloudPassage Halo can help you implement the best practices for Docker security in your organization. The consensus benchmarks for securing the Docker Engine itself, as well as hardening the underlying container host operating system can now be done in a way that is automated, orchestrated, inherently scalable and available on-demand.
CloudPassage Halo can extend your security teams critical visibility into dev, test and production Docker environments without breaking any of the scalability, agility and automation benefits of the containers.
