Aqua Security, the pioneer in cloud native security, today announced its open source solution Trivy now supports vulnerability scanning for Kubernetes components in addition to Kubernetes Bill of Materials (KBOM) generation. Now, companies can better understand the components within their Kubernetes environment and how secure they are in order to substantially reduce risk.
Kubernetes has been widely adopted across enterprises worldwide, but according to Red Hat, more than half of companies are worried about Kubernetes security — in particular, vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. Existing infrastructure scanners scan the infrastructure for misconfigurations only and cannot analyze Kubernetes components for vulnerabilities. With this new innovation in Aqua’s open source solution, Trivy is solving this challenge for the first time.
