Stratus Medicine offers hospitals and other healthcare providers a secure way to deploy innovative applications that improve patient care and reduce costs. Stratus provides these services via the Stratus Platform running on Google Cloud Platform.
Stratus leverages containers to simplify multi-tenant isolation, and it sought a container security platform to protect sensitive patient data. It also sought a security platform that integrated easily into the way Stratus runs its infrastructure, e.g., organizing by namespace.
Stratus selected the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform because of its focus on and deep integrations with Kubernetes. The ability to block deployments that didn’t meet minimum security configurations, continuously scan all deployments, automate checks against the HIPAA security standard, and leverage Kubernetes for enforcement were all key attributes for Stratus.
