Containers are being adopted rapidly by a diverse range of businesses seeking a modularized microservice-based architecture. Containers are highly scalable and allow you to push code out rapidly and frequently.
IT organizations may not have the requisite security controls to take advantage of new container-related tools and services IBM announced this month. Traditional on-premises security tools, even those configured to ward off modern-day threats, will largely lack the monitoring capabilities to handle the jump in data traffic and complexities running on new container services launched by IBM, as well as by Amazon, Microsoft and others, says RaniOsnat, vice president, Marketing at Aqua Security.
Aqua Security today updated its container security platform to add support for Kubernetes and the ability for developers to embed security controls directly in a container image. In addition to support for Kubernetes in the core Aqua container security platform, the latest version includes MicroEnforcer capability, which eliminates the need for a separate sidecar instance of a container to enforce security policies.
Crypto-mining script kiddies are coming to steal your Docker environment. Thats the warning from Aqua Security, which has published a report about attacks against containerized environments by people who want to mine cryptocurrency such as bitcoin.
VMware, in collaboration with sister company Pivotal, announced this week the general availability of the Kubernetes instance developed by the two companies.

Many people believe that workloads in the cloud always perform better because public clouds have access to an almost unlimited amount of resources. Although you can provision the resources you needand even use serverless computing so the allocation of resources is done for youthe fact is that having the right amount of resources is only half the battle.
Sylabscame out of stealth today to provide support for container software designed specifically for high-performance computing (HPC) environments that are being employed to process scientific applications based on, forco example, machine and deep learning algorithms. Company CEO Greg Kurtzer says the open source Singularity container he developed for HPC environments is unique in that it is based on a single file (SIF) that encapsulates the runtime environment.
StackRox this week moved to make it easier to secure containers by integrating its container security software with multiple container orchestration platforms. Company CTO Ali Golshan says StackRox Detect and Respond 2.0 software enables IT security teams to discover multiple types of threats by employing machine learning algorithms.
The Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) within the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) this week has decided to accept Vitess as a new project. Vitess is a database orchestration system developed at YouTube that automatically shards instances of open source MySQL databases as they horizontally scale.
