Cloud native Kubernetes offerings are expanded by SUSE ...

SUSE, a cloud native security company, has announced the creation of two of its container security solutions NeuVector and Rancher, which are now available. The company is pursuing its aim of providing a fully integrated cloud native platform that allows users to design, deploy, and easily secure Kubernete applications while also accelerate their digital transformation.

Companies that require a lot of computing and storage are moving to cloud infrastructures. Businesses that require increased security are increasingly altering their infrastructures to become cloud-native. This, according to Fei Huang, SUSE''s security strategy, has made security a vital prerequisite for both users and organizations using cloud-native workloads.

NeuVector 5.0 is a Kubernetes-specific end-to-end security solution that allows enterprises to quickly establish security in cloud-native environments. It''s a goal of NeuVector, which is to minimize the technical expertise and time it takes to develop and maintain a secure infrastructure, whether it be secure in one Kubernetes cluster or sending security to hundreds of clusters.

The downside of devops is that the rapid speed it encourages ignores security. The answer is to integrate security protocols and procedures across the devops pipeline. NeuVector can now be used to manage vulnerability scans and compliance checks, add admission control policies for staging or production deployment, implement zero-trust security controls, and prohibit malicious behavior in real-time.

Container security with NeuVector 5.0

The Container Security Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 27% in the forecast period from 2021 to 2026. A significant number of open-source suppliers are now delivering container platforms due to the rise in cyberattacks and vulnerabilities. Such container platforms include vulnerability management, compliance auditing, event monitoring, and post-analysis, as well as run-time security through unique network visibility and protection.

NeuVector 5.0 is an open source cloud native security platform. It is the first product release of NeuVector as part of SUSE. The company claims that NeuVector will provide open source solutions to customers as well as improve NeuVector''s zero-trust controls with unique security capabilities.

Greg Muscarella, head of enterprise container management at SUSE, said the company''s biggest competitors are very enterprises that do not have a security solution for their Kubernetes environment. [We] bring together the entire lifecycle solution for containers, from vulnerability scanning to runtime security, to audits that can be used anywhere Kubernetes runs.

Smart cloud solutions that combine intelligence and provide security and compliance to construct containers are becoming more widespread. NeuVector 5.0 claims to include a slew of new features aimed at simplifying and automating security safeguards in a production setting. One example is its zero-drift security function, which allows for additional intelligent protection by discovering and stopping rogue processes and harmful executables.

NeuVector 5.0, a web application firewall (WAF) with adjustable sensors, may be modified to apply WAF policies to operating containers, namespaces, or specified service groups, according to the company. It also includes security and data loss prevention (DLP) guidelines written in code to assist WAF. Additionally, its protection mode auto-switch will fully automate behavior learning to protect.

Hybrid platform for Kubernetes

SUSE''s commitment to bringing new security capabilities to the Kubernetes container ecosystem continues with the introduction of NeuVector 5.0, which is designed to automate security activities in order to reduce the complexity of security measures.

SUSE NeuVector 5.0 is compatible with SUSE Rancher and may be deployed, managed, and upgraded via any container management platform, such as Amazon EKS, IBM IKS, Microsoft AKS, Google GKE, or vanilla Kubernetes. According to the company, the Rancher connection allows customers to manage security directly via the company''s container management platform.

As part of the SUSE Rancher 2.6.5 release, Rancher users may now access and operate NeuVector directly from the console of the company. This gives the globally distributed Kubernetes settings the benefit of a zero-trust stack, which simplifies security administration. Rancher, according to the company, allows customers to confidently deploy their apps on Kubernetes, assisting operators in providing enterprise-critical applications with a better cloud-native security approach.

As container security concerns rise, our customers may depend on SUSE to provide a complete solution that improves security throughout the Kubernetes lifecycle, according to Greg. This information also demonstrates that SUSE NeuVector will assist organizations in maintaining their security against emerging cyber threats in any location without compromising developer agility and innovation, as it aspires to the tradition of SUSE Linux Enterprise and seamlessly integrates with SUSE Rancher.

SUSE said it intends to continue developing and expanding zero-trust controls in order to assist customers in moving towards a more proactive security strategy. We are also committed to being open, including by joining open-source communities, learning from them, sharing what we have learned, and as a safer workspace.
