Eliminate Kubernetes Security Vulnerabilities and Blindspots

Fairwinds Insights’ continuous Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) security scanning helps DevSecOps make Kubernetes and containers secure.


Automate Security at Scale

Scan multi-cluster environments against Kubernetes security best practices. Gain visibility and ensure consistent security across multiple teams, clusters and tenancies.


Integrate Shift-left Security

Run security validation checks from development through production. Configure Insights to show warnings or prevent development merges based on risky misconfigurations.


Reduce Risk Faster

Prioritize security risks based on severity and category for your team. Use time wisely with a prioritized approach to remediating vulnerabilities.

Fix Security Misconfigurations and Vulnerabilities Faster

Fairwinds Insights provides DevSecOps with consistency by enforcing Kubernetes security best practices across the entire software development life cycle.
Container Vulnerability Scanning Integrate container runtime monitoring. Track known vulnerabilities, prioritize findings and give developers remediation guidance. Integrate with ticketing workflows.
Kubernetes Runtime Security Proactively protect containers and pods against active threats once running in production. Detect and prevent malicious activity from occurring in your containers.
Infrastructure-as-Code Scanning in CI/CD Integrate Insights into CI/CD systems or GitHub directly and scan your Kubernetes manifests, like YAML and Helm Charts, against K8s guardrails at every pull request.
Image Upgrade Recommendations Accelerate remediation by recommending newer versions of third-party images with fewer vulnerabilities.
Secure Configuration / Pod Security Continuously scan clusters to identify image, container, cluster and Kubernetes misconfigurations. Integrate into CI/CD to prevent configuration mistakes in production.
Least Privilege Access Controls Ensure role-based access controls (RBAC) are implemented properly to enforce least privilege access.
NSA Hardening Checks Comply with guidelines laid out in the NSA Kubernetes hardening technical report. Gain strong defense-in-depth to ward off attacks and minimize the blast radius.
Vulnerability Explorer Use Fairwinds Insights to identify the riskiest container images across your Kubernetes clusters, including recommended upgrade and remediation options.
Enable Secure GitOps Auto-Scan GitOps-enabled workloads to discover and scan K8s manifests without requiring individual CI pipeline integration. Devs get immediate feedback on IaC changes.
