Use Cases & Environments
Zero Trust Runtime Security
Automated application hardening for cloud native applications.
AccuKnox automates the process of application hardening & firewalling to help you achieve Zero Trust/Least Privilege Security. Our unique application insights and automated policy discovery engines greatly simplify the work required to analyze applications and create effective security policies.
Get deep application insights into runtime behavior
Understand what your applications - including embedded dependencies - are doing.
Get visibility into process execution, forking, network and file access. Detect changes and risky behavior in dev, staging and production - in your software supply chain.
Network Segmentation & Firewalling
Easily orchestrate network segmentation & firewalling
Kubernetes pods and services in different namespaces can still communicate with each other unless additional separation is enforced. Manually configuring network and firewall policies is time-consuming and error prone.
AccuKnox automatically analyzes applications behavior and creates least privilege network policies to be implemented by existing, high-performance linux security modules. The network policies move as code with the application, greatly increasing the speed, control and confidence of DevSecOps teams.
Assess & demonstrate compliance with regulatory standards like PCI & NIST
Implement policies in Audit mode to continuously monitor the workloads for deviations from NIST, PCI and other standards. Get high-value, actionable alerts for your SecOps team – or enforce Runtime Security and implement guard rails for risky behavior.
Detect and protect against anomalous and malicious behavior, including policy drift, and “unknown unknowns”
AccuKnox implements Anomaly Detection using Variational Autoencoder (VAE) technology developed in partnership with SRI. This artificial neural network technology uses probabilistic graphical models and variational Bayesian methods. It has been tested successfully against a number of Zero Day threats like crypto jacking, HTTP flood attacks, etc.
Reduce the risk of critical vulnerabilities in your environment.
The NSA and CISA Kubernetes hardening guide recommends Scanning containers and Pods for vulnerabilities or misconfigurations. AccuKnox helps you identify known vulnerabilities in images and pods before they are released into production. Understand the risks and implement monitoring, image assurance and runtime security policies to protect them.
Advanced Cloud Workload Protection
Protect applications, data and the network.
AccuKnox provides a unified policy framework for protecting cloud workloads. It includes identity, application, data and network components that span kernel system calls up to layer 7 API access, giving DevSecOps teams extremely fine granularity over the guard rails that can be put in place – as well as the auditing specifications.
Identify and protect sensitive data in cloud workloads
Multi-Cloud, Multi-Platform Security
Monitor and protect your workloads however and wherever they run: In Containers, Kubernetes, virtual machines, or bare metal. In private, public, hybrid cloud, edge or IoT, or even within 5G infrastructure.
AccuKnox develops API-first solutions with complete CLI and GUI support. These are available as SaaS or on-premises and support multiple platforms.
Platforms vary in specific features that are supported. Contact us to learn more about how AccuKnox can provide you with security observability and runtime protection.
