Kubernetes is becoming the de-facto standard for container orchestration with 85% of companies stating it as their first choice for new product development. All cloud providers provide it as part of the infrastructure.
However, with the adoption of Kubernetes and micro-services architectures in general, the number of different software workloads running in the environment grows exponentially, making traditional models of security too complex to design and operate.
Cyber Armor is driving a paradigm shift in the way Kubernetes workloads and clusters are protected, moving away from numerous policy configurations, micro-segmentation, AccessControl Lists (ACLs), and security groups to a streamlined model in which workloads are deployed with inherent Zero Trust in which only explicitly authorized workloads can communicate and access sensitive data resources.
Cyber Armor’s cryptographic “Code DNA”-based identity assures the integrity of workloads from CI/CD to runtime and during the entire workload lifecycle.
By embedding the Cyber Armor identity into the CI/CD pipeline, companies can “shift left” the insertion of Zero Trust.
Cyber Armor is pre-integrated with the leading pipeline tools such as Jenkins to enable earlier workload identity definition without adding any administrative or logistical overhead.
Utilizing CI/CD to runtime identity, companies using Cyber Armor assure all workloads go through the proper pipeline and any rough workload or code is immediately identified and remediated.
One of the main barriers for cloud adoption arises when companies need to move their data to the cloud or open their data to cloud workloads.
By connecting workload identity with data protection and advanced transparent encryption technologies, Cyber Armor can assure secured transition to the cloud and enable safe and compliant cloud data migration.
Companies utilizing Cyber Armor Zero-Trust can encrypt and protect their cloud data without any changes to their existing workloads and architectures. Our technology enables transparent client-side encryption of cloud storage and SaaS data repositories and ensures only authorized workloads get access to the data.
Cyber Armor’s cloud data protection solutions are compatible with relational and data lake repositories such as Hadoop, ElasticSearch, MongoDB and others.
Cyber Armor realizes that adoption of cloud technologies is a multi-step journey. Companies will work across environments for the near future, and Cyber Armor ensures protection at all stages of the cloud migration journey.
Cyber Armor Zero Trust can be applied to any underlying infrastructure, and workloads can be “lifted and shifted” with no need to reconfigure security policies or redefine data protection (distributing keys, establishing identities, etc.).
Moreover, Cyber Amor’s identity-based Zero Trust works seamlessly across environments, providing a unified control plane across workloads running on cloud-native technologies, containers, VMs, bare metal, cloud, and legacy environments.
Running interpreted code on a third-party environment may expose critical company IP and create legal and business risks. Cyber Armor ensures that decrypted code never appears in storage or communication interfaces, allowing companies to safely run their non-binary source code in any environment without the risk of exposure. Only encrypted code files exist in the third-party environment, and these are only decrypted during runtime for Cyber Armor-protected processes.
