Trend Micro, which is a Tokyo based cybersecurity solution provider will now be going to offer a security solution to help the enterprises protect their workloads on containers and cloud at the same time, it revealed.
According to the company report, the solution was developed due to the need to provide protection across the entire DevOps run time and life cycles stack.
“Unlike many of the one-off point solutions crowding the market, our offering provides automated build-pipeline container image scanning, and extensive run time protection providing full visibility and control. What is strikingly unique is our consolidated tool for container plus workload security in every environment,” said Steve Quane, executive vice president at the network defense and hybrid cloud security division at Trend Micro.
Quane also revealed that the company can provide the security to the DevOps lifecycle by extending its container image scanning to include the pre-registry scanning that will also be going to help in the early detection of malware and vulnerabilities over and above scanning trusted registry for any of the future threats.
“Deep security will now also scan for embedded secrets such as passwords and private keys and provide compliance and configuration validation checks, along with image assertion for digitally signed images,” he added.
To make sure the complete protection, Trend Micro inspects all the horizontal and lateral traffic movement between the platform and containers layers like the Docker and Kubernetes.
