Tenable has announced the expansion of Tenable Cloud Security cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) capabilities for Kubernetes on both on-premises and public cloud environments.

These advancements have expanded Tenable’s CNAPP benefits to Kubernetes, which now include contextual risk visibility, preventive security controls, and zero trust/least privilege enforcement.

Many global organizations use Kubernetes as a standard for cloud application development and container orchestration. However, it can be complex and challenging to configure and manage properly, increasing the risk of security breaches and cloud vulnerabilities. In fact, a survey shows that 37% of organizations have experienced revenue or customer loss due to security incidents related to Kubernetes. 

To simplify technical risk data into plain and easy-to-understand language, Tenable Cloud Security eliminates the barriers to entry for developers, security professionals, and security leaders.

The new Kubernetes features and functionality from Tenable Cloud Security enable organizations to:

  • Scale Visibility Across Public and On-Premises Kubernetes Deployments: Protect Kubernetes clusters running on-premises in private networks and managed and self-managed clusters with comprehensive visibility and reporting at scale. Unlock full visibility to the resources in a cluster, including workloads, users, role bindings, namespaces, and beyond.
  • Intercept Risky Deployments with Preventive Security Controls: Block non-compliant Kubernetes resource deployments with custom admission controller and custom zero trust security policies.
  • Evade Long-Standing Privileges: Leverage least privilege policies and Just-in-Time (JIT) access to provide time-limited access and avoid long-standing privileges in Kubernetes clusters.

“We’re in an overly saturated market of feature-based tools that address small, inconsequential areas of risk. Tenable provides comprehensive visibility, accelerated time to value and unmatched actionable intelligence that takes the security headaches out of Kubernetes and all cloud infrastructure,” said Shai Morag, senior vice president and general manager of Tenable Cloud Security.
