This revolutionary new approach instruments an extremely lightweight snippet of Qualys code into the container image, enabling policy-driven monitoring, detection and blocking of container behavior at runtime. This capability eliminates the need for cumbersome management of sidecar and privileged containers by security solutions that are difficult to manage and administer on host nodes and don’t work in container-as-a-service environments. Qualys Runtime Container Security, once instrumented in the image, will work within each container irrespective of where the container is instantiated and does not need any additional administration containers. This new solution addresses, in real time, container security use cases like critical file-access monitoring and blocking, network micro-segmentation, vulnerability and exploit mitigation, and virtual patching.
