NeuVector Demonstrates VMware VIC Security for Containers
Docker container deployments bring new security concerns, even when deployed on VMs. In addition, getting adequate visibility and security for containers as they rapidly scale up or across hosts is virtually impossible without specialized tools. When containers run in a virtualized environment it can be difficult to keep track of application connections to determine whether these should be allowed or blocked. A layered security strategy should include both platform security as well as application security.
VMware has developed its container technology to promote simple and secure container deployments. The vSphere Integrated Containers, commonly known as VIC, enable containers to run on a specialized vSphere container platform that allow customers to use their existing VMware tooling. The environment provides robust platform level security for container deployments and leverages vSphere management and monitoring tools.
An application security layer can ensure that connections are inspected and analyzed for threats and violations which might otherwise bypass traditional network firewalls and segmentation. To provide this, the NeuVector container security platform is flexible enough to be deployed on a wide array of container platforms, including VIC. When deployed in a nested VIC environment, NeuVector can provide its flagship container security features to secure VIC based applications. These include:
