Achieving Kubernetes Security Posture Management (KSPM)
Kubernetes introduces powerful management capabilities, but it also presents some formidable security challenges—especially in multi-cloud environments.
In a recent article for Cloud Native Now, Ermetic co-founder and COO Arick Goomanovsky takes a look at the challenges of achieving a secure Kubernetes environment, especially in multicloud setups. He highlights issues such as visibility gaps, communication breakdowns, and monitoring difficulties.
Arick proposes a unified approach called cloud-native application protection platforms (CNAPP) to address these challenges by combining cloud workload protection, cloud security posture management, and cloud infrastructure entitlement management into a single platform. This integrated approach offers deeper visibility into Kubernetes settings, identity and entitlement management, and network configuration, enabling organizations to achieve continuous monitoring, management, and compliance in their Kubernetes environments.
