Aqua says its platform delivers consistent visibility for hybrid clouds with the ability to detect, prioritise and address risk, protect the supply chain and mitigate attacks without killing workloads.
Features include container immutability enforcement via drift prevention, scanning Red Hat OpenShift hosts running on Power 10 ppc64le architecture for malware and vulnerabilities, enforcing network segmentation for compliance mandates such as PCI-DSS, preventing cryptomining attacks and protecting against IP/DNS domains with bad reputations, and file integrity monitoring.
"Aqua's collaboration with IBM Power demonstrates our support for the platform and our commitment to solving the cloud native security problem for organisations around the world," said Aqua Security co-founder and CTO Amir Jerbi.
"Aqua will continue to pursue new capabilities that add value and solve key challenges for its customer community."
IBM Power CSO and distinguished engineer Dimitrios Penderakis said "IBM Power provides the base platform to deliver a secured hybrid cloud.
"To help ensure that customers can build on this platform and address the requirements for deploying securely on Kubernetes, we are working with Aqua for cloud native security.
"As attacks focused on containers increase and compliance needs grow, Aqua's runtime security capabilities mitigate risk and can accelerate cloud transformation for customers."
