DevOps is not a single person or business unit, it is a development philosophy that exists within many organizations. DevOps teams build new applications for business growth, and extend critical monolithic applications into modern architectures. A key tenet of this philosophy uses microservices to make applications lightweight and easier to develop, test, and deploy.
InfoSec teams struggle to keep up with the rapid pace of DevOps without creating roadblocks or reducing the security controls organizations have come to trust. To get ahead of these challenges, implement security earlier in the development cycle. Identify vulnerabilities before they can be exploited in production environments. To do that, security needs to be a part of the development lifecycle.
Trend Micro is extending its container host protection with the launch of Deep Security Smart Check.
Smart Check delivers fully automated pre-runtime scanning of Docker container images at the registry, providing vulnerability assessment and malware detection. This ultimately shifts security earlier in the development lifecycle for extended protection prior to deployment.
Trend Micro wants to help eliminate security roadblocks, and the best way to do that is to make security invisible through automation.
Trend Micro is delivering a full suite of RESTful APIs for integration with your organization’s continuous delivery tools such as Jenkins, configuration tools such as Ansible, Chef, Puppet, and orchestration tools such as Kubernetes.
Monolithic applications are cumbersome and less agile. With a microservice architecture, security can be applied for specific needs sooner. As part of Trend Micro’s full stack protection, Smart Check allows teams to call built-in security controls, identifying threats at first build and reducing re-work. By helping to streamline operations, teams can reduce tool complexity and optimize application deployment across cloud, virtualization, container, datacenter and a broad range of platforms.
Smart Check compliments Deep Security’s host-based protection, a critical requirement given the constant evolving threat landscape.
The rise of DevOps brings new sources of vulnerabilities. More of the business needs protection.
Integrating IT security and DevOps teams helps improve the security posture of your organization. Security controls found in Trend Micro Deep Security deliver needed protection earlier in the CI/CD pipeline. This mitigates vulnerabilities and malware, reducing the risk of cyber threats and leading to faster and more successful application protection and deployment.
