In order to protect their market covering cloud and virtual infrastructure, CloudPassage uses doker engine . The Docker platform creates automatic openings for applications which the software already contains.
CloudPassage is the titan in software security which focuses on cloud infrastructure. It is the only software-defined security system with its main aim to deal with private, hybrid, public or multi-cloud environments. CloudPassage is supported by important renowned investors such as Benchmark Capital, Meritech Capital Partners, Tenaya Capital, Shasta Ventures, Musea Ventures.
One of the most downloaded open source projects since OpenStack, the Docker Engine has reached the astonishing number of more than 70 million downloads. This particular platform is provided with extra layers of abstraction as well as automation for the OS-level used on Linux servers.
In other words, the Docker Engine assembles several components in order to create applications. The best part is that it totally removes the stress and agitation between quality and production departments as well as the development environment. Hence, the IT department can easily and rapidly run the previously mentioned application without suffering any changes. All these apps can be run on laptops, cloud infrastructures and even data center VM’s.
Even though Docker owns basic security systems, it is required that additional features must be implemented in order to gain full control access, modify and configure file systems attributes. Also, these extra features prevent any future processes to access the engine.
Regarding security, some of the best abilities provided by the Docker engine are:
– the continuously log intrusion detection,
-file integrity which constantly monitories any unauthorized changes,
– software malware which scans for any irregularities among the Docker system,
– access control to secure network access by keeping server ports hidden while access,
– firewall micro-segmentation which secures the Docker engine as well as its containers.
For the past decades, IT’s mainly focus was to create fixed perimeters, rediscover hardware and close proximity of data. Technology such as Docker virtualizes data centers and handles cloud environments making the previous assumptions crack. These environments were proved to be dynamic and of an abstract nature which made them difficult to depict. Also, quick solutions were nowhere to be found regarding such critical security issues.
The CEO of CloudPassage is thrilled with his new acquisition praising it to be a resourceful and fair priced software.” These environments demand a new approach to security, one that protects at a deeper level than just the perimeter” replied Mr. Carson Sweet.
