StackRox is continuing to shape the future of Kubernetes by enabling customers to build, deploy and run cloud-native applications at scale securely. In recent months, we have released several new, important features covered in this post, focusing on enhanced detection capabilities and simplified administrative workflows. This focus drove new protections for the Kubernetes API server, additional context for the Network Graph, support for the syslog protocol, and a simplified Helm chart installation and upgrade process.
The rapid emergence of modern software development initiatives, public cloud services, and cloud-native tools such as Kubernetes and containers has accelerated the seminal move towards DevOps practices. DevOps has come to reflect a culture that champions principles such as increased collaboration, shared responsibility between engineering teams that spans development and operations, removal of operational silos, and autonomous decision-making, all in the spirit of achieving greater speed and consistency. DevOps relies on methodologies that leverage automation, continuous integration and delivery, and treating infrastructure and application components as immutable.
Several years ago, few would have thought that a government agency would be at the forefront of application development tooling and processes, daring the civilian world to keep up with their shift-left knowhow. But that’s exactly what’s happening in the U.S. Department of Defense, which is implementing the Enterprise DevSecOps Initiative to enable agencies to increase the warfighter’s competitive advantage by developing applications more rapidly and securely. As StackRox found in our recent survey, 83% of organizations currently have a DevSecOps initiative, and the DoD is leading the charge.
