Every emerging technology faces hurdles when it comes to security and containers are no exception. Usage of containers is still limited but IT organizations are already concerned about how to secure them.
There are three challenges when it comes to solving container security. First, containers need to provide isolation between workloads so that a compromised workload doesn’t take over an entire server. Second, containers need to be assessed and frequently checked to determine if they can be trusted and to ensure that there haven’t been any new vulnerabilities. Third, containers need to be monitored to make sure they haven’t been misconfigured, which can leave them vulnerable to cybercriminals.
Of course, the key to making containers secure is to make sure that those developers working with containers are trained and can implement security policies. IT organizations need to develop security policies and make sure their entire team is knowledgeable about those policies.
This eBrief from SDxCentral delves into the latest developments in container security and looks at the techniques companies are using to ensure their container environments are secure and not vulnerable to breaches.
