Fairwinds Insights: Don't Miss the Release Notes Rollup - 3.0 to 4.0

Fairwinds Insights: Don't Miss the Release Notes Rollup - 3.0 to 4.0

We’ve had a busy few months, making significant updates to Fairwinds Insights, Kubernetes security, policy, and governance software. There are some great new features and additional functionality from each release, which we’ve broadly outlined below.

If you require continuous Kubernetes security monitoring, policy enforcement, and the ability to govern compliance and optimize costs, try Insights.

  • 4.0.0 New Cluster Overview UI - Our cluster overview page now makes it easier to visualize what's happening in your cluster. You can see your cluster's health score, action items aggregated by namespace and report, top action items, a cost summary, assigned action items, and more. Learn more.

  • 3.4.0 Export SOC2 report - Fairwinds Insights now has alpha support for checking compliance with SOC 2 certification within the context of Kubernetes. Insights will check that certain resources are being monitored for vulnerabilities and configuration issues, which are mapped to particular SOC 2 sections. You can export the findings as a CSV file and send it to your auditor.

  • 3.2.0 Automation Rules UI - Insights provides over 100 checks for Kubernetes clusters and resources. These checks are increasingly run in a variety of contexts, such as CI/CD, admission control, and in-cluster. Some checks may be more appropriate in specific contexts, require a higher level of severity, or trigger different alert/response mechanisms. Rules allow you to modify existing action items within Insights and customize them as you choose. You’ll find the Automation Rules under Automation in the navigation bar. For inspiration on how to use the automation rules, use the Create from Template section of the feature. There are eight pre-made rules that can help you get started. Learn more.

  • 3.1.0 OPA UI - The frontend for OPA is now available under policy in the navigation bar. You can create and run custom checks to create Action Items. Learn more about the OPA UI.

  • 3.0.0 Prometheus updates - We added a new report called The Prometheus Collector, which gathers workload metrics from a Prometheus installation in order to provide fine-grained resource usage data. You can use this report to gauge how much different workloads cost, understand cost trends, and help set resource requests and limits. Read more about the Prometheus Collector.
