Companies rush to provide Container runtime security to Google Cloud SCC

Companies such as Capsule 8, StackRox and Aqua Security have announced that they are set to work in partnership with Google Cloud Platform(GCP) to bring in container runtime security capabilities to Cloud Security Command Center, shortly known as Cloud SCC.

Technically speaking, Google’s Cloud Security Command Center helps enterprise security teams gather data and track down threats and act on them in a proactive way preventing business damage or financial loss. The platform offers an overall insight into application and data risk so that users can easily mitigate cyber threats to cloud resources and evaluate overall health.

Google’s Cloud SCC helps enterprises view and monitor an inventory of their cloud assets, scan storage systems for critical data and detect common web vulnerabilities and review access to critical assets- all from a single pane of glass.

Israel based Aqua Security integration with Cloud SCC offers real-time visibility into container security events and policy violations.

On a similar note, StackRox will deliver end to end security for customers who are running containerized applications on Google Kubernetes. The Mountain View-based company does so by visualizing the container’s attack surface and exposes malicious activity using machine learning and eventually helps in blocking cyber attacks of any range.

New York-based Capsule8 is a real-time, zero-day attack detection platform which has been purpose-built for modern production infrastructure. Its integration with Google Cloud Platform helps detect and shut down attacks as they happen.

“At Google, we have decades of experience in building secure containers. As we build new solutions, we ensure that customers are armed with the tools needed to combat with today’s security challenges in the cyber landscape”, said Andy Chang, Product Manager, Google Cloud Platform.

Chang added that the new container runtime security capabilities in Cloud SCC and the technical integration with companies like Aqua Security, StackRox and Capsule8 will offer customers access to the tools they need to protect containers from now on.
