Appgate introduced a new Kubernetes access control security for Appgate SDP, which enables customers to accelerate zero trust security for the cloud by protecting cloud-native workloads with ZTNA solution.

Most of the  organizations have already shifted traditional workloads to the cloud and are now focused on developing cloud-native applications driven by Kubernetes platform to support their modernization initiatives, improve efficiency, and enhance productivity.

Kubernetes has grown by 67% in 2021, and the global container and Kubernetes security market is predicted to reach $8.24 billion by 2030, up from $714 million in 2020 a number that need to be noted importantly.

The new Appgate SDP capability is deployed natively within a Kubernetes cluster, which allows organizations to use zero trust principles to control service-to-service access across Kubernetes clusters. This enables them to manage and enforce which microservices can communicate with which critical resources, regardless of location or implementation technologies. This reduces the attack surface, minimizing a bad actor’s ability to move laterally across microservice architectures in an organization’s environment

Appgate also secures ingress access from users to Kubernetes workloads, as well as access to and from air-gapped Kubernetes environments, for example, between on-premises and public cloud-based resources.

Organizations can be able to gain a single unified policy engine for Zero Trust access that enables them to control user-to-resource access and resource-to-resource access to streamline management and reduce complexity. Customers can protect all users, resources, and environments with one solution.
