Red Hat has announced the availability of Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes as an open source project: StackRox. The StackRox project aims to help simplify DevSecOps by integrating security capabilities within the development and deployment lifecycle, effectively shifting application security “to the left” in software creation.
Kubernetes is at the foundation of cloud-native development and one of the fastest growing open source projects. According to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) 2021 survey, 96% of respondents reported that they are using or evaluating Kubernetes. The open sourcing of Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security gives organizations a way to help shape the future of how they can better manage and protect their Kubernetes environments.
Red Hat plans to be an active member of the community, and the StackRox project will be the code behind Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes with the project helping to drive future product roadmaps. Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes provides customers using Red Hat OpenShift with enterprise-ready, Kubernetes-native security to enhance the security of infrastructure and workloads throughout the entire application lifecycle.
Kubernetes users and developers can join the community and test and contribute to the codebase of the project on GitHub.
