A recent press release reports, “Portshift, a leader in identity based workload protection for cloud-native applications, today announced its new Policy Advisor control interface, providing DevOps professionals with the ability to establish and automate policies for container-based microservices delivered in the cloud. Now a part of the Portshift Cloud Workload Protection Platform, Policy Advisor analyzes the actual network traffic and conditions throughout Kubernetes cluster environments and suggests connection rules in order to deliver the most operationally efficient and secure traffic model. As a result, the organization enjoys microservice operations that are automated, performant and secure.”
The release continues, “Portshift is a provider of identity-based cloud native workload security and risk management that ensures only administrator approved applications are running in authorized cloud environments, and that unknown, possibly malicious workloads are detected and removed. It represents a change from traditional workload management (using IP addresses, ports and firewalls to secure the network perimeter) because it addresses the unique security requirements of cloud-native microservices running in serverless containers both inside and outside the network perimeter. With the availability of Portshift’s Policy Advisor, administrators are now capable of setting and centralizing the management of operational policies in order to prevent conflicts and strengthen the overall security profile for modern applications orchestrated with Kubernetes. As a result, administrators can be confident that their container-based workload runtimes will be reliably consistent and configured to maximize productivity.”
