CAST AI’s Security Report has been certified by the Center for Internet Security, Inc. (CIS®) to compare the configuration status of Azure, AWS and GCP-managed Kubernetes clusters against the consensus-based best practice standards contained in the CIS Azure Kubernetes Service, CIS Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service, and CIS Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) Benchmarks. Organizations that leverage CAST AI’s Security Report can now ensure that the configurations of their critical assets align with the CIS Benchmarks™ consensus-based guidelines.
“Although Kubernetes offers enterprises a robust and flexible container orchestration solution, its relative newness combined with a dynamic operating paradigm makes it a potential target for security vulnerabilities if engineers don’t implement appropriate measures. Cybercriminals constantly search for security flaws in the Kubernetes ecosystem, so teams need a helping hand in securing their Kubernetes deployments,” said Leon Kuperman, CTO and Co-Founder of CAST AI.
The CIS Benchmarks program is a trusted, independent authority that facilitates the collaboration of public and private industry experts to achieve consensus on practical and actionable solutions. CIS Benchmarks are recommended as industry-accepted system hardening standards and are used by many organizations in meeting regulatory compliance regimes, including FISMA, FedRAMP, PCI DSS, NIST, HIPAA, and other security requirements.
“Cybersecurity challenges are mounting daily, which makes the need for standardconfigurations imperative. By certifying its product with the Center for Internet Security, CAST AI has demonstrated its commitment to actively solve the foundational problem of ensuring standard configurations are used throughout a given enterprise,” said Curtis Dukes, CIS Executive Vice President of Security Best Practices & Automation Group.
