SUSE has released SUSE NeuVector 5.0, the first edition of its container security platform since it was open sourced in January this year. The announcement, which coincides with the latest update of container management platform SUSE Rancher would advance SUSE’s vision of providing a fully integrated cloud-native platform that enables users to build, deploy, and easily secure their Kubernetes applications.
SUSE NeuVector 5.0 integrates with SUSE Rancher and other enterprise container management technologies such as Amazon EKS, Google GKE, and Microsoft AKS. Rancher users may now access and operate SUSE NeuVector straight from the Rancher interface as part of the SUSE Rancher 2.6.5 release. Clients would get a comprehensive zero-trust stack with a seamless user experience, making security management for big, globally dispersed Kubernetes deployments much easier.
“As container security concerns continue to rise, our customers know that they can count on SUSE to deliver a comprehensive solution that enhances security throughout the Kubernetes lifecycle,” said Greg Muscarella, general manager, enterprise container management, SUSE. “Building on the heritage of SUSE Linux Enterprise and integrating seamlessly with SUSE Rancher, SUSE NeuVector will enable enterprises to strengthen their security against growing cyber threats in any location without compromising developer agility and innovation.”
With the latest release of SUSE NeuVector, businesses may continue to construct container systems in real time. Web Application Firewall detection, automatic container protection, vulnerability (CVE) analysis and triage, compliance checks, and reporting are among the features available.
Cloud Native Security
SUSE Rancher, SUSE’s open, interoperable Kubernetes management platform, expands its capabilities to meet the changing demands of development teams managing a variety of workloads and environments from core to cloud to edge. SUSE Rancher would enable clients to confidently deploy their applications on Kubernetes, enabling operators to offer enterprise-critical services with an improved cloud native security strategy.
The following are enhanced client benefits that come with SUSE Rancher 2.6.5:
- NeuVector Integration – Operators would benefit from the inclusion of NeuVector authentication into SUSE Rancher since it will enable them manage and lifecycle of containers from deployment to security.
- Prometheus Federator – In SUSE Rancher, operators can now separate Prometheus metrics between projects. This gives businesses with many teams on the same platform a multi-tenant monitoring solution.
- RKE2 Provisioning General Availability – Customers and the community may deploy their clusters across a FIPS-compliant distribution with additional features aimed to assist satisfy CIS benchmark requirements with little involvement, thanks to SUSE’s newest Kubernetes release RKE2.
- Enhanced Windows Support – RKE2 GA adds Windows compatibility, including Server 2022. A vSphere driver is included in this release for provisioning into virtualized environments. .NET apps may now retain security best practices in container settings, thanks to the experimental GMSA toolset.
SUSE also announced the submission of SUSE NeuVector’s open source project, Open Zero Trust (OZT), to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, as part of its commitment to the open source community (CNCF).
“Security is a critical requirement for all users and enterprises deploying cloud native workloads,” said Fei Huang, Vice President, Security Strategy, SUSE. “By contributing Open Zero Trust to the CNCF, its overall value will grow as the community participates in evolving and improving Kubernetes security. Open Zero Trust provides the world-class container security capabilities of NeuVector to everyone with the goal of facilitating a strong community of security-focused contributors critical to defending against exploits and hackers.”
