Bitdefender releases GravityZone Security for Containers
News|by Leanne Bevan|24 August 2021
Lat month Bitdefender, a global cybersecurity leader, announced GravityZone Security for Containers, expanding its cloud workload security (CWS) offering with run-time support for containers and Linux kernel independence. The new solution delivers threat prevention, extended endpoint detection and response (XEDR) and anti-exploit protection for containers running in private and public clouds with comprehensive visibility and control through GravityZone, the company’s unified cybersecurity platform. New Linux kernel independence helps businesses move to the latest Linux distributions without the delays caused by dependencies commonly imposed by cybersecurity providers.
GravityZone Security for Containers provides a full-stack solution supporting EDR and CWS. Prevent, detect and remediate threats against cloud workloads (including Docker and Kubernetes containers). Bitdefender Linux-native prevention and detection technologies identify threats earlier and reduce adversary dwell time.
The use of containers has grown rapidly, speeding application delivery and digital transformation initiatives. Gartner predicts that by 2025, 85% of organisations will run containers in production, up from less than 30% in 2020. In addition to delays in moving to new Linux distributions, traditional security tools may generate increased risk due to their dependence on kernel modules to support security functions. This can create security and system stability challenges, resulting in workloads running on Linux servers being exposed to greater attack success.
