Cloud computing security and compliance provider, CloudPassage, has been awarded its eleventh patent. The most recent patent has been granted for its approach to securing containers (US 10,601,807 B2).
With the increasing number of enterprises of all sizes adopting container technology to implement microservices architectures for the cloud, the continuous monitoring of container integrity, security, and compliance can be mission-critical. This is in addition to the need to continuously monitor and secure workloads and IaaS services.
The new patent covers how the CloudPassage Cloud implements security and compliance automation for container hosts, guest containers, image registries, and related components. This patent joins CloudPassage’s portfolio of patents for automated security and compliance for workloads operated in public clouds, private clouds, and data center environments.
“From the start, our vision at CloudPassage has been to build innovations into a single platform that unifies and automates security for any type of workload in public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments,” said Carson Sweet, CEO and cofounder of CloudPassage. “This latest patent continues to validate the innovations our team creates to enhance the Halo platform.”
The announcement of this patent grant follows closely on the heels of the CloudPassage announcement in July. That release announced CloudPassage Halo’s automation of configuration security, vulnerability management, log event inspection, threat detection, and compliance monitoring for container environments, including Docker, Kubernetes, AWS ECS, AWS ECR, AWS EKS, and AWS Fargate.
CloudPassage Halo is a unified cloud security platform that automates cloud computing security controls and compliance across servers, containers, and IaaS in any public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments. Halo’s extensive automation capabilities would streamline and accelerate workflows between InfoSec and DevOps.
