Achieve Software Delivery Speed and Security With Microservices and Containers
DevOps aim to increase one’s speed of software delivery, but not with the same old architecture. One also needs microservices and containers (e.g., Docker) to package software for incremental change. But containers are new, and they introduce a range of new security issues that developers and security architects have not had to deal with before.
Guest presenter, Randy Heffner of Forrester Research, answers questions about microservices and container best practices

The growing adoption of containers and the availability of scalable orchestration tools (e.g. Kubernetes) are creating opportunities to develop more agile, easy-to-update applications that combine stateful and stateless modes. The emerging architecture combines both modalities, that have very different security considerations and risk profiles.
While Cloud Foundry Application Runtime is well-suited to 12-factor application development, Cloud Foundry Container Runtime is better for flexible, rapidly-updated apps that can scale-out specific parts of the application in a very elastic way. However, from a security standpoint, CFCR presents challenges in the form of 3rd party open-source inflow, developer-driven code changes, and frequent updates. It also presents benefits in the form of immutability, better network segmentation, and lack of persistence on the host (the notion we sometimes refer to as “reverse uptime”).
This webinar describes how to approach these divergent needs and demonstrates some of the methods and tools that can be used to mitigate risk without slowing down development.

Google said it themselves, “We are on a mission to make containers accessible to everyone, especially the enterprise.” But enterprises also need enterprise-grade security.
Enter the Aqua Container Security Platform (CSP), the first consumption-based container runtime security solution available on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Marketplace.
Aqua CSP is deployed onto your GKE cluster with one click. Once deployed, you get full lifecycle security for your container and Kubernetes-based applications, from image scanning to runtime and network controls.
Attend this webinar and learn how to:
• Protect GKE workloads while paying only for running nodes, per hour, via your monthly GCP bill.
• Scan images in your pipeline and in the Google Container Registry, and ensure that only trusted images are deployed into production
• Apply least-privilege security policies to your runtime environment to automatically detect and prevent malicious activity and container-related attacks
• Segment services on your cluster with container-level firewalling
• Integrate with Google’s Cloud Security Command Center for streamlined visibility
Nolan Karpinski with VMware and John Michaelson with Aqua Security
As more businesses embrace modern, agile application development processes, implementing security at the speed of the business requires an approach that easily extends across both containers and VMs.
Attend this webinar and learn how this integrated, highly scalable approach to securing VMs and containers through a combined solution allows security teams to visualize their security policy for VMs and containers within AppDefense, as well as view and respond to policy violations from Aqua within AppDefense.
During this webinar, we’ll review:
• Runtime assurance for containers that sends container context — called “runtime profiles” — to AppDefense
• How this policy is visualized within AppDefense once it’s inherited from Aqua in order to rationalize policy across various services and modes of deployment.
• Event identification and tracing in AppDefense
Aqua’s open source tools arm Kubernetes administrators and developers with an easy way to identify weaknesses in their deployments so that they can address those issues before they are exploited by attackers.
During this webinar we’ll review how Aqua's open source tools offer preventive security for Kubernetes:
•Kube-Bench: checks a Kubernetes cluster against 100+ checks documented in the CIS Kubernetes Benchmark.
•Kube-Hunter: conducts penetration tests against Kubernetes clusters that hunt for exploitable vulnerabilities and misconfiguration - both from outside the cluster as well as inside it (running as a pod).
As your environment expands from managing your own containers to include Containers as a Service (CaaS) and Serverless, what are the new risks of abstracting the underlying infrastructure? What are the best practices for ensuring consistent policies and compliance across hybrid environments combining serverless and containers?
During this webinar, we will explore the impact of CaaS and Serverless deployments on the enterprise security landscape and how to best protect applications regardless of where they run:
•The attack vectors of serverless environments
•The common practices which can be used across the different platforms
•The unique steps to protect each workload type and environment
•Why legacy security tools are not sufficient for microservices landscape
You’ll walk away with a solid understanding of how to combat the inherent security challenges of Serverless architectures and micro-services landscape.
This 12 minute video explains how to:
•Protect GKE workloads while paying only for running nodes, per hour, via your monthly GCP bill.
•Scan images in your pipeline and in the Google Container Registry, and ensure that only trusted images are deployed into production
•Apply least-privilege security policies to your runtime environment to automatically detect and prevent malicious activity and container-related attacks
•Segment services on your cluster with container-level firewalling
•Integrate with Google’s Cloud Security Command Center for streamlined visibility

Scott Ward, Principal Solution Architect, AWS and Liz Rice Technology Evangelist, Aqua Security
Container adoption has been skyrocketing, but as enterprises mature their container implementations, they face challenges in large-scale orchestration, time-to-market, and security. Amazon’s Managed Kubernetes Service (EKS) and AWS Fargate, which runs containers without having to manage servers or clusters, offer organizations great flexibility, scale and hassle-free options for deploying container-based applications.
The different modes of deployment also make it necessary to gain visibility and uniform security controls across EKS clusters and Fargate deployments. Protecting the application layer requires in-depth understanding of the workloads and their intended functionality.
Attend this webinar to see how the combination of AWS security controls and Aqua’s comprehensive container security platform provide a complete solution for securing containerized applications:
•Full life-cycle security controls that ensure applications are secured before they’re deployed
•Visibility into the security and compliance posture of applications deployed across Fargate and EKS
•Single-pane-of-glass management of security policy, uniformly across clusters and deployment modalities
•Leveraging other native AWS services including Amazon ECR, AWS KMS, IAM roles, and PrivateLink
Join our speakers Scott Ward, Principal Solution Architect, AWS and Liz Rice, Technology Evangelist, Aqua to learn how to secure your AWS container deployments.

We will be hosting a more detailed webinar on PCI DSS to show how you can deploy a Kubernetes cluster that meets these security standards (including GDPR and NIST mandates), while still maintaining DevOps agility.
This dedicated session will cover tools used, obstacles we’ve encountered, and important design decisions we’ve made to maintain compliant, while still preserving an agile development process.
Mostafa Siraj with Capital One and Rani Osnat with Aqua Security
Embedding security into your cloud-native pipeline (SD Times)
Aqua Security joins Mostafa Siraj with Capital One to talk about security for cloud native apps.
In today's modern software factories, organizations are shifting security to the left. No longer just the purview of firewalls, security needs to be built in during development and deployment processes. By doing so, organizations can ensure they are limiting vulnerabilities getting into production while cutting costs of both downtime and code rework. Attendees will learn:
•How to ensure that the use of open source doesn’t introduce vulnerabilities and other security risks
•How to automate delivery of trusted images using a policy-driven approach
•Empowering developers to secure their applications, while maintaining segregation of duties
•Ensuring the consistent flow of images through the pipeline, with no side-doors or introduction of unvetted images
•Enforcing immutability of containers, preventing container-image drift
A container image scanner looks at the software packages included in the image file system and checks it against a list of packages with known vulnerabilities - typically the NVD. Because this is a critical first step in assessing risks in containers before they deploy, Aqua offers a free-to-use tool for scanning your container images for package vulnerabilities.
Aqua’s scanner - which is the same whether you’re using MicroScanner or our full Container Security Platform - looks at many sources, such as the distributions’ own security advisories, and information from software developers themselves, to keep track of these differences. Our scanner does manual checks to further eliminate false positives and false negatives - a less common, but important, occurrence.
Attend this webinar to learn by way of demonstration how to use this tool for vulnerability scanning in container images and what makes it different from other scanner tools.
Tsvi Korren - Chief Solutions Architect at Aqua Security
One of the benefits of using containers, especially in microservices-based applications, is they make it easier to secure applications via runtime immutability—or never-changing—and applying least-privilege principles that limit what a container can do.
With immutability, every attempt to change the runtime environment is interpreted as an anomaly. And, thanks to containers’ simplicity, it is easier to predict their behavior in the application context and create a tight security envelope, allowing them to perform only their required function and preventing behaviors outside that scope.
In this webinar, Tsvi Korren, Chief Solutions Architect at Aqua Security, will explain and demonstrate how an approach that enforces immutability and least privilege can secure applications in an active container environment.
Ce webinaire va se concentrer sur la manière de sécuriser les conteneurs dans n’importe quel environnement IT tout en maintenant une haute disponibilité des services. Nous aborderons les défis en terme de sécurité de tels environnements et comment protéger les applications dans les conteneurs, de leur développement à la production en utilisant des contrôles de sécurité, des secrets et des accès en se référant aux standards de sécurité et de compliance (CIS, NIST… ).
Ce webinaire est principalement destiné à :
-Les administrateurs de la sécurité et les architectes qui veulent en savoir plus sur les risques et les avantages de l'utilisation des conteneurs, et comment les sécuriser efficacement
-Les équipes de développement d'applications et les équipes DevOps qui souhaitent proposer des applications plus sécurisées

This is an expanded version of what was presented at the KubeCon Lightning Talk
An admission controller intercepts requests to the Kubernetes API server prior to persistence of the object. By applying proper admission controls in your Kubernetes cluster, it's possible to generate deployments that adhere to the least privilege model, limiting user and container activity based on their business usage needs.
In this session, we will review the latest and greatest Kubernetes 1.10 admission controller capabilities. We will demonstrate in a live demo a dynamic admission control webhook that can be customized to limit privileged user access.
You’ll walk away understanding how to make such standards easier to implement and methods for going beyond them to provide security worthy of critical applications in production.
When it comes to securing an application deployed on Kubernetes, automation through a CI/CD pipeline is key. Using cloud-native security tools that hook right into Jenkins or your favorite CI/CD tool, enterprise security teams can set policies for developers who are building container images. The pipeline enforces those policies through automated vulnerability scanning of each image during the build process. Developers only deploy images that the security team is confident in because they’ve been scanned.
