CloudKnox Security Bolsters Permission Management Platform with Support for Kubernetes Containers
- Cloud permissions management leader provides customers full visibility into container orchestration to enable Zero Trust Access
CloudKnox Security, the only cloud permissions management platform provider for hybrid and multi-cloud environments, strengthens its industry-leading position by extending support for container workloads on Kubernetes. The extension of support through CloudKnox’s Activity-based Authorization protocol provides visibility and remediation to identities with Kubernetes Container permissions, proving once again that the company is the prominent leader delivering innovative solutions to combat emerging enterprise challenges.
With the rise of digital transformation, microservice and container architectures are increasingly popular as a way to enable cloud adoption, rapid deployment and high availability. Yet, these strategies require the implementation of a Zero Trust model to mitigate significant security risks to cloud infrastructure. CloudKnox delivers on a core pillar of the Zero Trust model: limiting excessive user entitlements. The CloudKnox Permissions Management Platform’s support for workloads on Kubernetes Containers, the most popular container orchestration platform, reinforces the company’s position as a leader in the Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management (CIEM) segment.
Today, permission management for Kubernetes Containers is primarily done through the Kubernetes Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), or through native Identity Access Management (IAM) permissions. However, because the permissions are assigned in two places, cloud infrastructure and security teams find it difficult to effectively manage identities. By merging permissions assigned through Kubernetes RBAC and IAM transparently, CloudKnox customers are empowered with full visibility into all identities across all environments leveraged by the organization, and the ability to conduct in-depth analysis of all activity logs. By providing insight into the identities that are assigned permission and usage within the cloud, enterprise leaders and security teams alike can easily understand which identities are over privileged; and, they can take action to mitigate risks before they become true threats to the organization.

“CloudKnox provides superior visibility into permissions assigned to identities and workloads within virtual machines, serverless and containers, including Kubernetes,” said Balaji Parimi, CEO and founder at CloudKnox Security. “We take pride in assisting our customers with the monumental challenge of securing their hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures by identifying their Cloud Permissions Gap risk and implementing the principle of least privilege (PoLP) and Zero Trust access to address it.”
In addition to supporting Kubernetes Containers, CloudKnox is extending support for serverless functions on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Together, these advancements on the CloudKnox Cloud Permissions Management Platform underscore its technology lead in the market, while also bringing the CIEM segment into the new security category’s next evolutionary stage.
