Aqua Security, a pure-play cloud-native security provider, has announced general availability of runtime security for customers using Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Power Systems to drive infrastructure and application modernization. With Aqua’s runtime technology, IBM Power customers can now protect the full lifecycle of Red Hat OpenShift containerized workloads to stop cloud native attacks.
IBM Power customers who are using Red Hat OpenShift to drive cloud native transformation can leverage Aqua technology as their cloud security solution.
Security continues to be a challenge to cloud-native adoption, a view supported by Aqua's Nautilus research team. Aqua’s recent report indicates cloud native attacks are evolving and increasing in frequency and speed—all underscoring the need for a comprehensive security solution.
According to Aqua Security, the Aqua platform builds on IBM Power’s reliability to mitigate risks across the application lifecycle in hybrid cloud environments and delivers consistent visibility for hybrid clouds with the ability to detect, prioritize and address risk, protect the supply chain and mitigate attacks without killing workloads. Aqua’s container and Kubernetes workload runtime protection allows companies to adopt Red Hat OpenShift on Power to address their risk management and compliance needs at scale.
“Aqua’s collaboration with IBM Power demonstrates our support for the platform and our commitment to solving the cloud native security problem for organizations around the world,” said Amir Jerbi, co-founder and CTO, Aqua Security. “Aqua will continue to pursue new capabilities that add value and solve key challenges for its customer community.”
“IBM Power provides the base platform to deliver a secured hybrid cloud. To help ensure that customers can build on this platform and address the requirements for deploying securely on Kubernetes, we are working with Aqua for cloud native security,” added Dimitrios Penderakis, distinguished engineer and chief security officer of IBM Power. “As attacks focused on containers increase and compliance needs grow, Aqua’s runtime security capabilities mitigate risk and can accelerate cloud transformation for customers."
