VMware has announced expanded cloud workload protection capabilities to deliver security for containers and Kubernetes. The new solution will help increase visibility, enable compliance and enhance security for containerized applications from build to production in public cloud and on-premises environments.
Expanding the VMware Carbon Black Cloud Workload offering, the new capabilities will enable organizations to better secure containerized applications in Kubernetes environments. The solution shifts security left to protect the entire lifecycle of Kubernetes applications.
InfoSec teams can now scan containers and Kubernetes configuration files early in the development cycle to address vulnerabilities with unparalleled visibility. The solution provides continuous cloud-native security and compliance to better secure applications and data wherever they live.
The VMware container security module will empower InfoSec and DevOps teams to better collaborate and identify risks earlier in the development cycle with built-in security. The expanded offering will provide a new vantage point to allow cross-functional teams to detect and fix vulnerabilities to achieve simple, more secure multi-cloud Kubernetes environments.
The container security module compliments the VMware Tanzu portfolio.
Select Tanzu editions include a global control plane for centralized management of all aspects of cluster lifecycle, including policies for access, data protection, and more. Customers can now add powerful security for containers and Kubernetes applications while simplifying operations for InfoSec and DevOps teams.
