Google Next Talk: Kubernetes Security Threats and Solutions

We were pleased to present at Google Cloud Next 2018 at the request of Allan Naim, a Kubernetes Engine product manager at Google. In our talk, we highlighted reference architectures for container security and technical demos of attack vectors in the ecosystem. Our talk centered around architectures for FinTech companies running on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), but anyone running containers and Kubernetes can leverage the findings we’ll review here. Allan started the discussion with an overview of the Google Cloud products that retail and financial services businesses can use to build rich, tailored, easy-to-operate solutions for their customers.

Delivering Container Security in the Google Cloud Security Command Center

One of the most basic challenges a security team faces can sometimes simply be getting a handle on what assets exist where, and what exposures and issues affect them. So, we’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded our existing partnership with Google Cloud Platform to bring detailed security context to container resources in the Google Cloud Security Command Center (SCC). Our customers on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) can easily configure the StackRox Container Security Platform to send real-time container security exposures and alerts to the Cloud SCC.
