Support delivers seamless runtime security controls for clusters managed on Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes
BOSTON – 5 June 2018 – Aqua Security, a market-leading platform provider for securing container-based and cloud-native applications, today announced its support for Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS). Supporting Amazon EKS uses Aqua’s Kubernetes-native security controls, released in March this year as part of Aqua 3.0, and makes securing Kubernetes-based applications seamless for Amazon EKS users.
Aqua has also updated its open-source tool Kube-Bench, which tests Kubernetes nodes against the CIS Kubernetes Benchmark recommendations, so that it now also supports Amazon EKS.
“We are excited to see Amazon EKS is now available as an enterprise-ready option to operate Kubernetes for even the most complex microservices applications,” said Amir Jerbi, CTO and co-founder of Aqua Security. “By making it easy to secure those applications seamlessly, we enable customers to accelerate deployment without compromising on security and compliance.”
Amazon EKS is a managed service that makes it easy to run Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services (AWS) without needing to install and operate Kubernetes clusters.
Aqua provides seamless security that leverages native Kubernetes capabilities, and provides additional deep security controls that are now available on Amazon EKS:
Aqua’s platform is currently in use by dozens of Global 1000 customers, providing the most comprehensive full-lifecycle solution for securing container-based and cloud-native applications, running on-premises or on the cloud, supporting both Linux and Windows runtime environments. The Aqua platform drives DevSecOps automation, and provides visibility and runtime protection for cloud-native workloads, including both host-level and network-level controls.
