Portshift has announced serverless container security support for AWS Fargate. The Portshift Platform now provides runtime protection for Fargate instances running on AWS EKS.
AWS Fargate allocates the right amount of compute for containers, eliminating the need to choose instances and scale cluster capacity in Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).
The Fargate serverless solution makes it easy for DevOps professionals to focus on building applications by removing the need to provision and manage servers.
The Portshift security solution helps to prevent the deployment of unknown or vulnerable images by detecting, alerting and blocking malicious or non-authenticated containers.
With integration capabilities, Portshift natively protects Fargate instances without any insertion of code or code instrumentation by leveraging an agentless approach. The platform validates Fargate images early in the CI and CD pipeline and enforces runtime security on Fargate EKS to prevent unauthorized or misconfigured containers from running.
Portshift claims to provide rich context, declarative policy enforcement and remediation for Fargate instances. It also provides visibility and control, vulnerability management, declarative policy management, executable runtime prevention, threat detection and remediation during runtime, and security-as-code to streamline DevOps security.
Moreover, DevOps, DevSecOps and security professionals gain holistic security and compliance oversight with Portshift’s single pane of glass Kubernetes-based platform for a single source of container security truth.
