In this fourth video of our demo series, I show how our solution gives responders the capabilities to hunt for threats in their environments by looking for malicious indicators. In this video, see how StackRox tracks suspicious events over time and surfaces them if they are used in malicious activity.
The Red Hat OpenShift platform is enabling enterprise organizations to use container technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes to build, deploy, and run applications with unprecedented agility, scale, and speed. In this blog post, I’ll walk through how we’ve integrated StackRox with OpenShift to help our joint customers ensure comprehensive security across their container lifecycle. You can also visit the OpenShift Commons to view a recording of my briefing on this topic from last week, which goes into more details, and provides a live demo of StackRox running with OpenShift.
DockerCon EU 2017 Recap: Security, Kubernetes, and MTA Hej from Copenhagen! I’ve had the privilege of spending the last few days here at an incredible DockerCon EU. With thousands of attendees from hundreds of companies converging on the City of Spires, it’s clear that the Docker community is thriving across the world. Here are some of the highlights we saw this week. Docker Continues to Grow by Leaps & Bounds At his morning keynote, Steve Singh, CEO of Docker, highlighted the state of the Docker ecosystem, with 21 million hosts running Docker and more than 24 billion (!
Today we are excited to announce that version 1.3 of the StackRox platform is now generally available. Every new release adds a number of significant features, but 1.3 in particular enables greater flexibility, configurability, and scalability when securing some of the world’s largest enterprises running containers in production. We previously wrote that threat protection in container environments has to start with visibility and detection. This release delivers several advancements to detection rules, policies, and deployment automation that enable StackRox to discover a broader set of threats, faster.
We’re pleased to begin our video demo series walking you through the StackRox platform. Our first video features a look at our map view and visibility features. This allows security teams to quickly understand what’s impacting their infrastructures, and gain a clear view of the risk across their overall environment.
Enterprise organizations across diverse verticals, such as 3M, Adobe, Kellogg’s, and Netflix, have been ramping up their use of the public cloud to the point where that usage accounts for a substantial portion of their annual IT spend. ‘Enterprises with big budgets, data centers, and complex applications are now looking at cloud as a viable place to run core business applications’, according to Dave Bartoletti, an analyst at Forrester Research.
By now, details of the massive Equifax breach that saw 143 million personal records compromised has made its way around the global news, as well as the broader security and enterprise IT communities. Within these circles, you can bet that anyone responsible for resolving application vulnerabilities is worried about becoming the next headline. There’s little argument that patching applications is a big deal; both in terms of criticality to the organization’s security posture, and in terms of the onerous process it can be when performed in traditional application environments.
At StackRox, we’re thrilled to have the support of Ron Gula, an industry luminary and invaluable mentor to me for the past decade. Ron is a longtime leader in the security community, having started his career at the National Security Agency (NSA) conducting penetration tests of government networks and performing advanced vulnerability research. Ron is also an experienced entrepreneur, CTO, and CEO, as the original author of the Dragon Intrusion Detection System, CTO of Network Security Wizards (acquired by Enterasys Networks), and cofounder of Tenable Network Security, where he served as CEO from 2002-2016.
