According to recent reports, over 86% of organizations manage some portion of their container workloads using Kubernetes; however, security still remains a large concern. In this same survey, over half of respondents stated that their organization does not have an adequate investment in container security. Without a strategy in place, this can quickly cause delays in adoption of Kubernetes or serious security incidents.
Beyond basic features, such as enforcing role-based access control, Kubernetes does not offer the ability to protect applications from vulnerabilities. This is where you must use additional programs or third-party vendors to ensure that proper security systems are in place.
