NeuVector, which delivers continuous network security for containers, has partnered with Rancher Labs to make container security “as easy to deploy as application containers.”
Rancher is an open source platform for deploying and managing containers in production. It includes “robust” container orchestration capabilities, as well as commercially-supported distributions of Kubernetes, Mesos, and Docker Swarm – “making it easy to run containerized applications with any infrastructure.” Rancher also provides a full set of infrastructure services for containers, including networking, storage, host management, load balancing, and more.
Enterprise DevOps teams can now use NeuVector‘s container network security application within the Rancher container management platform. This partnership makes NeuVector the first and only solution for container network security that is available in the Rancher application catalog.
The integration would simplify deployment of NeuVector containers into an enterprise container environment. As more enterprises move to a container-based application deployment model, DevOps teams would be discovering the need for management and orchestration tools to automate container deployments. At the same time, production deployments of containers for business-critical applications would require specialized container-intelligent security tools.
NeuVector secures containers where they have been most vulnerable: in production environments where they are constantly being deployed, updated, moved, and scaled across hosts and data centers. With constant behavioral learning automatically applied to security policies for containers, the NeuVector container network security solution delivers multi-layered protection for containers and their hosts. This includes violation and threat detection, vulnerability scanning, and privilege escalation detection for hosts and containers.
“We strongly advise our customers to use container management platforms like Rancher to manage and monitor NeuVector containers,” said Fei Huang, CEO, NeuVector. “In this way, security is built into the application deployment process. DevOps and security teams can be assured that all hosts running application containers also have the NeuVector security container running to protect them.”
