Tenable Delivers Zero-Trust Cloud Functionality for Kubernetes

Tenable®, the Exposure Management company, announced expanded Tenable Cloud Security cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) capabilities for Kubernetes on-premises and public cloud environments. These latest advancements extend Tenable’s CNAPP benefits, such as contextual risk visibility, preventive security controls, and zero trust / least privilege enforcement, to Kubernetes. 

Kubernetes, the de facto standard global organizations use for cloud application development and container orchestration, is complex and difficult to configure and manage properly. This can lead to increased security risk and cloud exposures. Nearly four in 10 (37%) organizations have experienced revenue or customer loss due to a Kubernetes security incident.1 Tenable Cloud Security eliminates the barrier to entry for developers, security professionals, and security leaders alike by dramatically simplifying technical risk data into plain, easy-to-understand language. 

Tenable Cloud Security is intuitive and highly scalable, helping organizations easily navigate any step on their cloud security journey. Customers gain the ability to prioritize their efforts with automated contextual risk analysis across the full cloud technology stack, as well as achieve the least privilege at scale. 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 a 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.

“Tenable Cloud Security takes the guesswork out of the entire cloud security equation, enabling security teams to reduce cloud risk in minutes,” said Shai Morag, senior vice president and general manager of Tenable Cloud Security. “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.”

Earlier this year, CRN named Tenable a Cloud 100 company, a list that honors the 100 leading cloud companies for 2024 across five key categories: infrastructure, monitoring and management, storage, software, and security.
