So, your organization’s simplifying Kubernetes management with AWS’s Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). Now, how are you going to secure that cluster?
Whether your role is on the application team, or in DevOps or SecOps, you might be thinking: We chose EKS because agility is important to us. Similarly, we need manageable and efficient security, so we can stay focused on what only our team can do.
Whether your organization is embracing a zero trust security approach, or you’re developing a threat model to prioritize your security actions and investments, several items are likely top-of-mind, including:
Cisco Secure Workload (formerly Tetration) supports the use cases above, and more, in AWS EKS environments. Since Secure Workload’s inception, its agent has always been lightweight, consuming less that 1% of CPU resources. Now, for container security, we’ve enhanced the agent to be easily deployed as a DaemonSet, rather than a host OS agent.
Here’s why we think you’ll like DaemonSets:
Additionally, Secure Workload provides a SaaS subscription option, simplifying proof-of-value demos and accelerating time-to-value in your production environment. Just as EKS is managed by AWS, the Secure Workload infrastructure is fully managed by Cisco, available globally, and supporting European data residency requirements. As customers “get their feet wet” with Secure Workload’s capabilities, they often begin by addressing one or two use cases, taking advantage of Secure Workload’s flexible, usage-based, pricing model.
