Zero Trust Network Security with
Kubernetes Network Policies

Implement a Zero Trust approach to container security by allowing only required communication. Visualize all network communication between pods, services, and applications inside Kubernetes. Shorten time to implement network security from weeks to hours by automating Kubernetes network policies. Identify anomalous network activity quickly by auditing every connection to or from any process.

Stop Lateral Movement with Zero Trust Network Security

Image Scanning

Start with deep
network visibility

Gain visibility into all network traffic in and out of a particular pod, service, or application. Spot suspicious network activity by auditing every connection attempt to and from a specific process.

Compliance

Apply Kubernetes-native microsegmentation

Enable microsegmentation using Kubernetes native network policies. Apply network policy using rich context so you don’t break the application.

Runtime Security

Simplify network policy
creation

Save time by automating Kubernetes network policies. Use a simple interface to modify policies without manually changing the YAML.


Choose a Kubernetes-Native Approach to Network Security

Sysdig Secure uses native Kubernetes network policies to enforce Zero Trust network security. With native controls, you get better performance, reliability, and security because Kubernetes itself enforces the microsegmentation.

Kubernetes makes static IP addresses obsolete. Teams are dependent on the application context and Kubernetes metadata to segment the network. Layer 3 container firewalls use a man-in-the-middle approach to implement decisions, but tamper with the underlying Kubernetes infrastructure. The better approach is to have the Kubernetes platform handle the implementation.

Start with Deep Network Visibility

Visualize all network communication between apps and services in Kubernetes using dynamic topology maps.

Network Security Visualize
Network Security Drill Down

Drill down into the traffic flow between a service, namespace, or pod over a particular time frame (3H, 12H, 1D, 3D, 7D).

Conduct thorough investigations by auditing every connection attempt to and from a specific process. Respond quickly by analyzing all successful and failed connection events in Splunk.

Network Security Conduct Thorough Investigation

Apply Kubernetes-Native Microsegmentation

Implement least-privilege Kubernetes network policies using rich application and Kubernetes metadata. Ensure these policies are not too permissive, but also that they don’t break application functionality.

Network Security Implement Least Privilege Kubernetes
Network Security Meet Compliance Requirements

Meet compliance requirements, such as NIST and PCI, that require network segmentation

Simplify Network Policy Creation

Use a simple interface to easily modify policies without manually changing the YAML. Visually confirm the topology before applying in production.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are Kubernetes Network Policies?

A: Network policies are Kubernetes resources that control the traffic between pods and services endpoints.

Q: Can Kubernetes network policies be used for microsegmentation?

A: Yes. You can use labels that identify the apps and services that are communicating inside the cluster. These labels can be used to select pods, and apply ingress/egress rules to control traffic between them.

Q: Are Kubernetes network policies hard to implement?

A: Sometimes it can be complicated to modify the YAML when updating network policies. Tools like Sysdig provide a simple interface to make changes without requiring deep Kubernetes networking expertise.
