John Coyle, vice president of business development for Sumo Logic, said, “We’re excited to launch our Kubernetes security integration with StackRox since it will enable customers to gain unparalleled insights and operational metrics in a single dashboard to ensure their cloud-native environments are continuously protected.”

The StackRox App for Sumo Logic provides several key metrics such as vulnerabilities, runtime threats, and compliance violations across container and Kubernetes environments through the following dashboards:

  • StackRox Overview:  This offers a snapshot of key metrics about an organization’s overall Kubernetes and container security posture
  • StackRox Image Violations: These display information from StackRox’s image scanning and vulnerability management capabilities and prioritizes security issues in container images based on rich context derived from Kubernetes
  • StackRox Kubernetes Violations: These highlight prioritized list of misconfigurations of Kubernetes components based on more than 70 DevOps and Security best practices
  • StackRox Runtime Violations: These provide insights into threats and other suspicious activity at runtime based on continuous monitoring of every single container within Kubernetes environments

Richard Reinders, manager of security operations for Looker, a joint StackRox and Sumo Logic customer said, “StackRox gives us a Kubernetes-centric single pane of glass view into the security posture of our multi-cloud infrastructure. Having StackRox’s unique Kubernetes security insights available directly on our Sumo Logic Dashboard provides us with a single place to view security and compliance details alongside our operational analytics for our cloud-native infrastructure. This integration also allows us to use a single, consistent, security event detection and response pipeline.”
