This month, the release notes for Fairwinds Insights include several bug fixes and improvements. We’ve updated the cluster overview page to change how the Action Items chart works. There is also new cluster data available, so you can quickly understand the overall state of your clusters by visiting this page.
Typically, workload containers running inside the Kubernetes network are exposed to the outside world using an HTTP-based ingress controller; to make this secure, you need to add an SSL/TLS encryption-based configuration to the Kubernetes cluster. To verify whether you have TLS configured for your clusters, Insights now also includes automated compliance TLS for ingresses. You can run this compliance test automatically using Fairwinds Insights. Polaris, which is integrated into Insights, checks whether all ingresses within the Kubernetes cluster have TLS configured.
Fairwinds Insights now also enables you to catch security issues earlier in the deployment process. The latest updates include a new Insights CI script that enables you to scan Terraform files, and the Auto-Scan feature allows you to scan private images. For more information about how this works, visit the Auto-Scan page in Insights documentation.
We continue to make fixes and resolve bugs to ensure that your experience with Insights makes it easier for you to identify and resolve issues with reliability, security, and cost efficiency quickly.
