Kubernetes can be challenging to operate. Teams often put off addressing security processes until they are ready to deploy code into production. Kubernetes requires a new approach to security. After all, legacy tools and processes fall short of meeting cloud-native requirements by failing to provide visibility into dynamic container environments.
Fifty-four percent of containers live for five minutes or less, which makes investigating anomalous behavior and breaches extremely challenging.
One of the key points of cloud-native security is addressing container security risks as soon as possible. Doing it later in the development life cycle slows down the pace of cloud adoption while raising security and compliance risks.
The Cloud/DevOps/DevSecOps teams are typically responsible for security and compliance as critical cloud applications move to production. This adds to their already busy schedule to keep the cloud infrastructure and application health in good shape.
