Threat Stack Announces Containerized Agent to Enable Container Deployment at Scale


Threat Stack can now be deployed as a container, enabling DevOps to
build security directly into Kubernetes and Docker deployment processes

, the leader in cloud infrastructure security, today announced
streamlined deployment of the Threat
Stack Cloud Security Platform®
designed to provide
organizations with the ability to automate the deployment of Threat
Stack's agent as a separate container. With a new containerized version
of its Cloud Security Platform agent, Threat Stack customers will be
able to maintain security visibility as they continue to scale their
container infrastructure without slowing down DevOps processes.

With the new deployment model, Threat Stack customers can leverage
Kubernetes DaemonSets to automatically deploy Threat Stack's agent
alongside new container deployments, streamlining the install and
management process. While the agent is deployed as its own container, it
will provide the same in-depth host and container visibility as Threat
Stack's current agent installed directly on the host.

Threat Stack's agent will be available as a container image on Docker
Hub. The ease of deployment via Docker Hub will enable customers to
immediately increase visibility into container environments with
contextualized alerts.

The new deployment model of Threat Stack's existing Cloud Security
Platform will be generally available in September 2018.

"We're seeing our customers' infrastructure transition very quickly to
containers and container orchestration," said Aditya Joshi, Executive
Vice President, Products & Technology. "Our containerized agent will
help them maintain the deep visibility into both host and container
infrastructure that they've come to expect from Threat Stack, while at
the same time gaining the velocity and operational simplicity of
containers. It's a win-win for our customers."

The Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform gives security and operations
teams a single place to monitor their infrastructure, detect potential
security incidents, and identify patterns of risky behavior across the
organization. It also powers the Threat
Stack Cloud SecOps Program
℠, a series of services designed to
provide the expertise that growing organizations need to integrate
security and operations without having to recruit hard-to-find talent.
