Containers Security

Stop Attacks Before They Start

Build and deploy secure containers at Kubernetes scale

Building and deploying containerized applications in small clusters or at Kubernetes-scale comes with the challenges of vetting Docker images and upstream packages and of setting security policies that lock down cross-client access. Unfortunately, managing security this way means a never-ending battle to stay ahead of hackers and may prevent you from taking full advantage of the inherent power and flexibility of Kubernetes to make your environment as secure as possible.

Polymorphing enables you to make your images unique. This technology integrates into your existing CI/CD pipeline so you can build and distribute ever-changing images for your Kubernetes clusters. Patched or unpatched, these scrambled images can prevent 70 percent of the most common exploits and nearly all zero-day vulnerabilities. The Polymorphic Build Farm for Open Source adds the ability to distribute your images at a scale that has no practical limit.

Security made for containers

Prevent attacks through diversity

Polymorphing was designed and built to run on containers. It works by randomly scrambling and recompiling the base Linux, packages and binaries, changing file locations, memory addresses, network parameters and every aspect of an image or .iso without changing how it does its work. Everything performs as it should, but nothing about the running system looks familiar to a hacker seeking to exploit a stock Linux OS or package vulnerability.

Easy to monitor and maintain

Despite all this pod diversity, images compiled with Polymorphing and delivered with the Polymorphic Build Farm for Open source remain easy to monitor and maintain. Together, they allow you to build in trust by verifying your code end-to-end, test your configurations in real time, and deploy hundreds or thousands of pods quickly and reliably.

Containers are great for spinning up applications, particularly at scale with Kubernetes, but their ease-of-use sometimes leads to lax maintenance, which can leave you vulnerable to the common exploits.

Research indicates that the vulnerabilities attackers will most commonly leverage to exploit systems are buffer-overflow bugs.
